The American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation's Let's Talk Trains travels to the 2014 Railroad Passenger Car Alliance convention in Branson, Missouri this week. We will learn what the Alliance does for Passenger Car Owners and what it means for the railfan.
Founded in 1982, the Railroad Passenger Car Alliance was created as a resource to owners and operators of privately owned railroad passenger equipment. The primary goal was to coordinate efforts for pooling their equipment for mainline steam excursions. The popularity of the organization quickly grew and today includes over 400 members.
As mainline steam excursions ceased, the organization changed the mission statement to include promoting the preservation and operation of historic railroad equipment, addressing the issues facing equipment owners and working with the nation's railroads and Amtrak to facilitate the operation and movement of member's passenger cars.
Today R.P.C.A. is a growing and forward thinking organization led by a Board of Directors who are railroad industry professionals, and are capable of thinking outside the box. Dedicated to preserving a unique and enjoyable mode of transportation.

This week, Kansas City Nathan is back behind the mic, as we talk about happening in the world of model railroading, railfanning, Silver Rails Country and last but not least the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation. He will be broadcasting the show from the Depot Inn & Suites, located in Silver Rails Country, centered in LaPlata, Mo.
First off, we will check in with our Regional Roundup Correspondents from around the country, and we will talk about major railroad-related news items. Then, Nathan will discuss the recent N-Scale Enthusiast National Convention, which was held in Roanoke, Va., between June 24th and 27th, after being able to talk to a lot of the hobby's major manufacturers, as well as the up-and-coming companies in the model railroad industry; plus all the things he got to experience while in Virginia--which should be on each railfan's "Railfan Bucket List."
Next, we will discuss happenings in the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation, including updates on the facilities, what you the loyal listerners could do to help and volunteer, as well as the different programs that the APRHF supports, including the popular National Parks Services' Trails & Rails program between Chicago, Ill. and LaPlata.
We will then welcome Tom Anderson, of Silver Rails Vineyards LLC, Silver Rails Country's newest feature to the show. We will be talking about wine & railroads and how they go hand-in-hand, both in LaPlata & Silver Rails Country, and throughout the United States. If everything works out according to plan, we may even have a couple of other guests who have railroad-themed wines, from a vineyard 20 miles south of LaPlata, in Macon, Mo.
We will have a interesting show, and we would like to invite you to join in the live discussion! Be sure to call in to ask your questions, present your opinions, and talk trains!

We’ve all been there -- stuck in highway traffic watching single-passenger drivers cheating the system in the HOV lane. You’ve probably even thought about jumping over into the HOV Lane yourself; even though you don’t have a passenger. Today we’re going to talk about a new solution that visually identifies HOV and HOT lane violators at highway speeds. Our special guest is Mark Cantelli, vice president and CTO of the Government & Transportation Sector here at Xerox.
