Railroad History 213 "Stretches Across National Landscape"
Given the mission of this journal, of course itís our job to present railroad-related research. But the thing thatís striking about these stories is the sheer diversity of them, stretching across the entire national landscape, and through most of Americaís years as an independent country. Like the songs in Cashís album and indeed, like the nation itself, itís railroads that tie this great saga together.
Enjoy the ride. From the editor's column by Peter A. Hansen.
