    New American State - Amtrak

    in Politics

    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.

    Is Trespassing A New Media Fad?

    in Hobbies

    This week, on the APRHF's Let's Talk Trains Show, we welcome the Executive Director of Missouri Operation Lifesaver, Rick Mooney.


    With all the press about Bravo Network's "Work Out" star, Greg Plitt---who was killed while trespassing on the right-of-way, shooting a commercial for an energy drink---and the recent influx of trespassing injuries and deaths in the media, such as when professional photographers take unsuspecting clients to get Senior Photos or modeling photo shoots. This brings to mind what WE all can do to educate the public on how dangerous the tracks are. We will discuss ways that we---as railfans/model railroaders/rail-buffs---can help spread the word on railroad safety and ways to help end these tragic events, for all those who are involved.


    To lighten up the mood, during the Second Half of the show, APRHF President Bob Cox and Kansas City Nathan discuss modeling Amtrak passenger trains throughout the years. Bob & KC Nathan will talk about the different ways to model the American passenger rail service, from it's very beginnings to the present day. Since Bob is the station caretaker at the LaPlata, Mo. Amtrak Station, who else would be better than to talk about this!?!

    Saddle Up for Montana

    in Travel

    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.
