Dennis Wilson: "My Life As A Rail"

Spend an evening with Dennis S. Wilson and hear his life story of working on the railroad for forty years as a brakeman, conductor, and union leader. With a little bit of humor, history, and real life experience, Dennis tells about derailments, blinding Iowa blizzards, tragic accidents, mergers, bankruptcies, long layovers, and much more. His stories have appeared in The Iowan and Our Iowa magazine. He also is an advocate for Orphan Train history recognition, speaking throughout the state on the subject.
