2nd QUARTER 2019: Elbert Simon provides readers with an overview history of a modest but popular operator of intercity passenger trains in the Northeast—the Delaware & Hudson Railroad—while Frank Keller gives travelers a rundown on what’s new on the Alaska Rail Road and its remarkable trains. Also in the issue, Trail Blazer’s Steve Ferrell tells us how we can take a ride on the Reading, SEPTA style. And then, PTJ editor Mike Schafer reveals the details of an eyebrow-raising trip on Amtrak’s Texas Eagle. All this and more in the 2nd Quarter issue of Passenger Train Journal!
Friends and colleagues gathered in Chicago at the end of September for our special event. The White River Rocket was the first-ever chartered train on Metra, operated for White River Productions to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of Passenger Train Journal.
