Ride the Rattler to Romance by Paul P Northcutt Dust Jacket 1974 97 Pages
More than a hundred years ago the Railroads spearheaded the move toward expansion of the United States. They searched out the fertile land areas, developed the utilization of the natural resources, and bound the far-flung states into a cohesive unit-forming this great nation. The Passenger Train was the binding establishment, the link between cities and towns.
Conversely, today the Railroad's participation in the trade of carrying passengers, in this nation, is practically nil.
I know not the reason for the decline of this American heritage. Perhaps, it was the greed of our so-called Free Enterprise System. Maybe the changing times demanded the means of being able to hop from place to place in shorter, although less splendid, periods of time. It could have been the indifferent attitude of the Train Attendants who were more intent on going by the Rule Book than in catering to the comfort and enjoyment of their customers. Who knows the reason!
Ride the Rattler to Romance is a little story of people whose lives were dedicated to "Railroading" during the "Iron Horse's" ascending years. I hope that it may recall to old Railroaders and Travelers alike a mild nostalgia and that it may furnish some amusement to those who were never privileged to ride the rails to ROMANCE. As for me, it is as a page from my Book of Life that I treasure among my souvenirs.
