NMU English professor James McCommons wrote an opinion piece in the Lake Tahoe News titled “Learning about the U.S. via trains.” He has ridden Amtrak since college and more recently logged nearly 100,000 miles researching and promoting his book, Waiting on a Train: The Embattled Future of Passenger Rail Service. In the opinion piece, McCommons explores the social aspects of train travel, including one of his more remarkable encounters in the dining car. He also describes the “intimacy with landscape” afforded by this mode of transportation. Read it here.
