Today I attended a luncheon at the City Club in Chicago sponsored by the “Sandhouse Gang”, a discussion group that focuses on all things rail. This group is operated out of the Transportation Center at Northwestern University. The following excerpt from the website link above tells the story of how the Sandhouse Gang got its name, which is quite clever and a fun piece of rail history:

Locomotives use sand to assist them for traction (steel wheels on steel rails will sometimes slip particularly if the rail is wet). Prior to modern servicing facilities, there was a separate area near the railroad roundhouse where locomotives were “sanded” between trips. This location was often out of the way and found employees from several different unions in the area – hostlers, engineers, brakemen, oilers, maintenance people, carmen and so on. But few management people were there. As such the “Sandhouse” became a “gossip” area of sorts for the exchange of all kinds of facts, stories, and rumors. In fact, a common railroad expression was “give me the sandhouse” on this or that. Translation: ‘Give me the low-down.'” buy valtrex online cheap no prescription. … but valacyclovir high price, or but at

At meeting, I had the pleasure of listening to a presentation given by Ray Lang, Amtrak’s Senior Director of State & Local Government Affairs. To read more about Ray, click here.

Subsequent to this luncheon, Ray followed up with me via e-mail clarifying some of Amtrak’s positions in relation to their new business model and how passenger trains in the U.S. fit into this plan. I fully intend to continue this dialogue with Ray in the future as it relates to passenger rail in the Rockford region.
