NUTC Sandhouse Rail Group presents [Brown Bag Luncheon @ METRA]:
Chicago: America's Railroad Capital
Trains Magazine Journalists, Lassen and Wrinn, willl present a talk on Chicago Rail Operations and Importance.
Chicago's importance as a railroading center has long been a topic of interest for Trains Magazine, the world's largest-circulation railroading publication. For the first time since 2003, Trains has devoted an entire magazine to the topic, and this time, the special issue is accompanied by a DVD look at operations in the city. Trains editors will discuss the project and the ongoing importance of documenting events in Chicago.
David Lassen, an associate editor at Trains, directed production of the magazine's Chicago special issue and accompanying DVD. He joined Trains in 2014 after almost 30 years as a sportswriter in Southern California.
He is a native Californian and a graduate of the University of Denver.
Jim Wrinn has been editor of Trains since 2004. A lifelong steam fan, he is a qualified locomotive engineer at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, N.C. Before joining the magazine, the North Carolina native and University of North Carolina graduate worked at several newspapers in his home state.
