About the Author

Jim McClellan was a veteran of the railroad industry.

Reviews

"

Jim's recollection of events and the people--the human as well as organizational tensions--is well balanced and accurate. If you are interested in railroad economics and leadership issues, this book should be in your library. Jim McClellan's memoirs provide a series of valuable history lessons, not just for us older folks, but also for those who face the next 30 to 40 years of uncertainty and opportunity.

"--Railway Age

"We've seen a lot of railroading's giants pass in recent years, but I can't recall anyone who triggered the kind of deep, emotional response accorded Jim.... We'll learn more about him in May 2017 when Indiana University Press releases his book, My Life with Trains."

--Classic Trains

"The personal observations of a life-long railroader combined with dozens of color photographs make for great railfan reading."

--S Gaugian

"

McClellan covers his wide-ranging professional life, copiously illustrated with his own color photos... often taken from his privileged perch in either the locomotive cab or from the rear vestibule. McClellan has left us a vivid memoir of a railroad life well lived.
