New Documentary Promotes Passenger Trains in U.S.

A new film, Trainsforming America, takes a look at passenger rail in the US from the passengers' perspective.

Two independent filmmakers have created a documentary which looks at the passenger rail system in the United States and compares it with its counterpart in Europe.  Trainsforming America doesn't focus on the financial or political issues of passenger rail travel but, instead, focuses on it from the viewpoint of passengers.  

One of the filmmakers, Rebecca Sansom, spoke with Transportation Radio's Bernie Wagenblast about the film in this report.
