Summary
During the tumultuous year of 2008, James MeCommons rode America's trains, talking to the people who ride and work the rails throughout much of the Amtrak system. He introduces us to historians, railroad executives, politicians, regulators, lobbyists, and passenger-rail advocates in search of answers: Why has the world's greatest railroad nation turned its back on the form of transportation that made modern life and mobility possible? What can be done to revive passenger rail to a new greatness? Book jacket
