Subject: [Calrailfans] New PBS program about American history seeks Cal Rail
Can anyone direct me? I am doing research for a new national Public
Television program about American history and am interested in some
of the history of California trains that can be told through existing
artifacts, Cabooses or old stations that aren't in or part of a
museum but owned by private people who have an interest in their
preservation but also a curiosity about their origin or connection to
important train, and therefore American, history.
Ideally, the exploration of such an item would lead us into a story
about the history of trains in general with possible tie-ins such as
the Transcontinental, immigrant work on railroads, industrial history
such as fisheries, famous books, or famous characters throughout
