Trains has been covering shortline and regional railroads for years. This TRAINS Express package includes six stories on these fascinating railroads — starting with the September 1978 story about shortline boxcars that inspired Gulf & Ohio Railways Chairman and CEO Pete Claussen to go into the business; read all about Kentucky’s Cadiz Railroad; and learn more about the origins of Pennsylvania’s Reading & Northern to see how it developed through the years from a tiny branch to a flourishing regional. Here’s the line up from the Trains magazine archive:
- "The smart money rides on box cars" By Paul J. Dolkos Pages 22-26, September 1978
- "The Cadiz — all 10.3 miles and 9 lives" By Gary W. Dolzall and Jerry Mart Pages 57-61, November 1981
