I heard this album at the ticket place in Denton, WV when riding the restored antique Engines from the early 20th Century. With wonderful bluegrass music, this album also contained railroad sounds that helped cement the songs together. I had to buy it and it is worthwhile. Not the music of Deliverance or even Roy Clark and Buck Trent - but good down home country instrumental music. A good listen for anyone into the music of this country's heritage. I love it and think you will too!

A great mix of the familiar and not so familiar train songs with authentic steam locomotive sounds between tracks to complement the steam era of most of the songs. Excellent selection of musicians,who get their turns through out the album. Especially noteable is some excellent banjo and ,to me some absolutely fantastic harmonica playing. The songs are played toward the contemporary style with a nod toward tradition. "Rhythm of the Rails" would be great for the railroad buff,sentimentalist,or contemporary accoustic music buff. I never get tired of listening to it probably because there is not the sameness that some albums have,where the songs all sound alike,but not on this album.

Dad listens to this CD a lot, he's a retired RR worker of 31 yrs on the MO Pac. He started working on engines when the old steamers were still running, and watched the change in the late 40's to early 50's of diesels. At 89 years old dad can still go to a RR museum, and tell you more than you want to know about how the old steamers worked.
