September 2018 issue preview

Welcome to the September 2018 issue of Trains. Take a ride in a dome car on the Branson Scenic Railway. Get lost in our map of downtown Chicago in 1954. Brace yourself for how railroads survive hurricanes. Make several stops at obscure Amtrak stations around the U.S. Take in a then-and-now first-person story about Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4s at Valparaiso, Ind. Saddle up and check out workhorse railroad Columbia Terminal in Missouri. See your way through the dark at a Southern Pacific yard at night in 1960. Enjoy our customary hot news analysis, reader Q&As, beautiful gallery, and so much more!
