The Railroad Nation is dedicated to the promotion of preservation railroading and the history of American railroads. My name is Terry DeFranco and also author the tourist railroad site ScenicRailExcursions.com
Originally titled RailroadNation.com I was forced to start over do to a lapse in my understanding of the dire situation of my webhost, that abruptly went out of business.
As the site develops, I will be following news stories on tourist railroad attractions and rail fan events.
Preservation railroads are my passion. I try to find stories about scenic rail excursions and events for every rail fan’s enjoyment. Steam engines represent our great railroad heritage, and preserving them for future generations to enjoy is a constant battle against time. Succeeding in maintaining and running these early work horses is an expensive endeavor. And mostly due to dedicated volunteers, generous donations and railroad fans everywhere, we are able to enjoy their one of a kind experiences.
I also support future railroading. High Speed Rail has proven to be successful in Asia and a Europe and must happen in the US as we confront increased vehicle pollution and energy issues.
So. Let’s Talk trains!
