Join us at the library and learn about the Orphan Trains.
Why they became popular, what trains were used, and why they came to an end in the 1920's.

He has written the official history of United States railroads, Trains Across the Continent, contributing editor of the Railway Atlas of North America, Railroading on Three Continents, and has just finished The Great Railroad War.
