Its story, written by Charles Chilton , and told with music, verse, and gramophone records by Lionel Gamlin
From the earliest times when the pioneers of the American railroad began to push their tracks eastwards across the continent, song, music, and verse have accompanied the great adventure. Indeed, the American railway train and the American railway track figure in some of the most fascinating folk music of the New World.
Aircraftman Charles Chilton has always had a keen interest in American history, and is an unflagging student of its music and folklore. For this programme, which was first broadcast iust before the war, he has collected the cream of prose, verse, and song to do with the U.S. railway.
