Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

Help Wanted – UPDATE

Despite my shameful neglect, this blog continues to have readers. Trans for America is jsut too good to die.

I am working three jobs, and a couple of projects on the side. I have been unable to give this site the attention it deserves. Therefore, I am seeking an individual (individuals?) to assist in editing and writing this blog. A few of the qualifications are:

  • some journalistic flair. That means writing ability. Reasonably good spelling and punctuation and a basic understanding of libel/slander and copyright issues.
  • some understanding of modern passenger railroading. This site tends to favor corridors and high speed projects, but we are hardly ever against long distance trains. We carry reports from Europe and other international sources. The purpose is to highlight how badly the USA lags on transportation policy.
  • able to use historic example without drifting into nostalgia.
  • not overly visible on rail fan sites.
  • willing to contribute using your real name, and provide some biographical information for public disclosure.
  • willing to regularly update site for NO COMPENSATION (other than the solemn pride of a job well done!

If you are interested, drop me a line. The link to my email is in the right hand column. Do not put your application. in “Comments.”

UPDATE – There is some very good news coming soon. There will be two new contributors coming to the TFA blog. They live in different regions, so this is quite exciting. One is in Florida and the other in Minnesota. Both have traveled and possess a perspective beyond the local issues. I will continue in the role of Grand Exalted Potentate and Seer of all True Wisdom.

I would welcome an application from an interested individual on the west coast. That would give this forum a true “national” feel that I think would be very beneficial.

This is bad news for airline  truckers and the other special interest groups who have worked tenaciously to kill ground transportation in America.

Thanks to our many readers!
