Why New American State?
Our country is going through transformations not seen since the Industrial Revolution. America is transforming because it HAS TO. The current state of our nation, politically and economically, is unsustainable. Change is the only certainty. I am a part of that change. If you live in the United States, consciously or unconsciously, YOU are a part of that change too. As we go through these changes together, we will be the ones redefining the state of America, the new American state. These are extraordinary times.
Mon-Fri 8-10 pm eastern
Join World Footprints as we take you on a journey through a national treasure—the State of Montana. We covered just a small section of this wonderful state—Glacier Country--but as you’ll discover from Part I of this series, there’s a reason why many celebrities (Ted Turner, David Letterman, among others) call Montana a “home away from home.” Our first stop through Glacier country begins in the town of Whitefish, an enchanting art and cultural center, and you’ll meet the proprietors of the Good Medicine Lodge. (One of the most extraordinary places we have ever stayed.) Whitefish is also the gateway to our second stop—Glacier National Park. We will take you deep inside Glacier National Park to share some of its charm with the help of Mike Davies of Glacier Guides. Then we’ll travel by rail on the Amtrak Empire Builder to Havre, Montana, where we’ll experience the Havre Underground, a town beneath the town. Finally, we’ll end the first part of this journey with a stop that takes us on safari (yes, a safari) on the Great Plains with Jacob Dusek of Sage Safaris.

This is the second segment segments that I did Saturday Oct 25 2014 at the Museum
My tour Guide was Norman M. Buchanan one of the Docents who led me about and answered all my silly questions. WE prerecorded this show but soon realized that my voice recorder kept getting turned off has I was walking around so I decided to present the show in segments and hopefully add some commentary before each segment and then let the recording speak for itself
I must admit Mr. Buchanan is a much better tour guide then I am a note taker and or photographer so if some of my pictures do not fit this segment then it is my fault, but much better pictures are on the museum's website. Some of the pictures on this show are mine, the really good ones belong to the Museum
In this segment We covered the Steam crew with either Jeff and or Bill, then on to the US Mail Car, Then onto to the Pullman car, (with a Plug for the Amtrak Texas Eagle), The “Water for Elephants” Stock car
One of my favorite side stories is the Business Car and deals that went on it.
The working Steam Engine that never retired, US Naval Weapons station Seal Beach California Box cars, I can never get that far away from US Navy Haze Gray
Grizzly Flats and Ward Kimball who was one of Walt Disney’s 9 old men who started Disneyland
Chloe the engine and the sugar cane train story
THANK YOU Mr. Buchanan and the entire staff at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris CA.
