Grass Between the Rails

August 30, 2015

The program celebrates Iowa’s railroad heritage with a unique blend of stories and original folk songs about the development of railroads in Iowa. The subjects cover events of national importance such as the race across Iowa to connect with the transcontinental railroad to the West, and local history, including the poor service offered by the “Slow Norwegian.” Other topics include the somber “Worst Wreck Ever,” a farm boy’s remembrance of “The One Elephant Circus,” and the rollicking “Doodlebug.”

Funded project of Humanities Iowa.  Humanities Iowa is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
