Additional Information

Written from the perspective of one on the inside, the reader is given short true glimpses of what it is like to be a "working railroader." Here you will have a view not only from the seat of a locomotive or the rear platform of a caboose; but you will see the railroad looking up from the inspection pits of the roundhouse and the locomotive shop, from an operator's desk in an interlocking tower, looking over the shoulder of a night train dispatcher, a trackman sweeping switches, and we'll harass crews from a managerial point of view, just for the fun of it..."because we can!" The author has always admired the style of O. Henry and loves to conclude with that surprise ending! This is not your typical railroad picture book; instead you will find enough material to hold your attention while you are flying from Los Angeles to Washington, D. C. and hopefully create a desire for more! Yes, this is just a collection of short stories...every one of them true...and some are even written in blood! Enjoy!

To anyone who loves some great stories this is a good book. To someone that understands the
operations of everyday railroad life, this is an amazing book. I was able to relate to all of the
experiences and found myself laughing aloud several times. Very nicely done.
My compliments to the author.
I had previously read Chuck's stories in Classic Trains Magazine. So this compilation of stories was nice to see. He is a true railroader and I hope he continues to share his career with readers like me who never got to go railroading.
Mr Geletzke has written a fun and easy to read book about the life of railroaders and all the funny stories that never gets passed on. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop.
