Rock Island Pulls a Reverse 360!

With Rock Island Rail, a solvent and growing carrier, conducting Directed Service of the Blackwell Northern Gateway, the RI name has done a reverse 360. That's because in 1980, the original Rock Island was a dying carrier that was being operated by the Kansas City Terminal. In today's episode of The All Aboard Podcast, Phil talks about Directed Service on the Rock Island and D&H, along with the lurid details of the Blackwell Northern's fall...with the L&NE, CNJ, Erie Lackawanna, and Lehigh Valley all making cameo appearances!
