Customer ReviewsSee All
This podcast is awesome and I highly recommend this. Rather you work on the railroad, have family or friends who do, you like trains or not, this podcast shines a light on railroading in America through the perspective of a railroader.
The Railroad is a unique industry with a unique culture and it’s always changing. Moving America podcast is a great way to disperse news and tell stories from those Runnin’ down the rail. Look forward to future podcasts.
