Railroad Heritage 2022:3 (issue 69)

Railroad Heritage, Summer 2021: Los Angeles River, Pentrex, Malo

Three fabulous feature articles form the backbone of our Summer 2021 issue. Take a deep look at railroading along the Los Angeles River with Elrond Lawrence in the cover story, the latest in our “Art of Place” series. If you grew up watching Pentrex railroad videos (or just enjoy a well-told tale of the rise and fall of a media empire), you will not want to miss Justin Franz’s oral history of Pentrex, “I sell train tapes.” For exceptional creative nonfiction writing paired with equally exceptional photographs of contemporary railroading in Texas and Kansas, settle into a favorite chair for Rick Malo’s “Writes of Passage” photo essay.

We also commemorate Amtrak’s 50th anniversary with a gallery from our collections, offer tips for how best to house your collections in “Out of the Archives,” consider the European rivalry between the German Rheingold and French Edelweiss trains, and sit down with Joel Jensen for an interview about his photography and why he values the Center.
