"Passenger trains on freight railroads:truth is a constant casualty"

Don Phillips
Journalist, Transportation

 

ABSTRACT:

In addition to passenger trains on greight railroads (and truth), Don will cover these additional subjects:
-Despite happy-happy talk, what is Boardman really doing?
-Is oil by rail the beginning of a revolution, or a temporary expedient until piplines can be built?
Even the most skeptical railroaders now see a revolution. Why? What could go wrong?
-Are we really winning the battle to protect our right to take pictures of trains?
