Ridin’ the Rails is a nostalgic look at the history of the American railroad as told in story and song by legendary Johnny Cash.
“There’s nothing that stirs my imagination like the sound of a steam locomotive—that lonesome whistle cutting through the night and that column of black smoke & steam throwing shadows across the land. When I was a boy the trains ran by my house and they carried with them a promise that somewhere down the track anything would be possible.”
Transcontinental Railroad Details the building of the Transcontinental Railroad from the beginning planning stages to its completion.
