Summary: A podcast for railfans and casual train enthusiasts that discusses current rail news and events, and model railroading.
On this episode of the Railroad Roll-By Podcast, we discuss why railroads sometimes exchange locomotives with other railroads. Then Todd announces the newest item on his model railroad wishlist. In conclusion, we then talk about the recent birthdays celebrated by both Amtrak and Utah Transit Authority’s Frontrunner, and reflect back on our personal experiences with the commuter service from its beginning days. That’s all in episode 6 of the Railroad Roll-By Podcast!
In this episode, Schon and Todd tell you which resources are best for keeping track of heritage unit schedules, plus we cover model railroading and the different ways layouts are created. We also tell you why SP 4449 was seen steaming along the Columbia River Gorge.
In this episode, Todd and Schon talk about Union Pacific’s big infrastructure investment and the railroad’s plan to improve service. And just how much does a train cost? We take a look at some of the used equipment that is for sale. Hint: a caboose is quite affordable!
On this edition of the Railroad Roll-By Podcast, Todd talks about his childhood in Hooper, Utah, and how the D&RGW railroad became one of his favorite fallen flags. Schon and Todd discuss the recent train show that took place in Ogden’s Union Station. Then our producer, Dylan, joins the fun by playing a whole bunch of train horns and whistles and leaving Schon to guess what they are. That’s all in store for episode 3 of the Railroad Roll-By Podcast.
In episode 2 of the Railroad Roll-By podcast, we discuss copper thefts, French Fry steam locomotives, and then we take a deep dive into discussing Todd’s Model Railroad dilemma.
