It is understandable if you missed National Train Day, we had Mothers Day Sunday and that was far more important.
Some background- National Train Day is a holiday started by Amtrak in 2008 as a method to spread information to the general public about the advantages of Rail Travel and the History of Trains in the United States.
It is held each year on the Saturday closest to May 10th, the anniversary of the Pounding of the Golden Spike in Promontory, Utah- which marked the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad.
In short, a self-serving pseudo-holiday invented by Amtrak!
But affording me the opportunity to play some of the great and varied Train Songs produced in Rock & Roll over the years.
