About the Book

This book is a random collection of the author’s experiences on some of his many trips on trains. The experiences range from the embarrassing to the deeply spiritual with everything in between. He describes some of the trips in detail, provides historical background for some of the rail lines, and adds information on related railroad themes such as the accommodations on Pullman cars. He also shares his interest in toy trains and model railroad layouts, and how his hobby of taking pictures of trains culminated in exhibits of his photographs in a museum in Mexico and various museums in Texas.
