Welcome to Behind the Throttle

Behind the Throttle

Welcome to Behind the Throttle, a blog dedicated to railroaders. All too often the iron horses we’ve come to love steal the spotlight from the dedicated men and women who keep tradition alive. Behind the Throttle shifts the spotlight away from the actual trains themselves, and shines light on the people who keep the trains moving. Our hope is to give railroaders a place to share their stories, and help them achieve the recognition they deserve for their contributions to this culture. Trains are a magical thing; they are woven into the fabrics of family, friendships, and even the history of this nation. Our blog is here to tell the stories of the people that sustain the magic, and inspire a new generation of railroaders. This is Behind the Throttle, The Human Side of Railroading.
