It is understandable if you missed National Train Day this past Saturday, what with Mothers Day being Sunday and far more important.
Hell, I am even late by a few days with this show, lol!
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.
Here are those links to listen, and Riding The Rails is still the best way to see the country, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
