Transcontinental Railroad Music

Classic Railroad Songs ()

Railroads figure heavily in American folk music, and Smithsonian has compiled a great collection of railroad tunes performed by some of the biggest names in folk. This is essential listening for the folk fan and the railroad buff and comes with well-researched (it's Smithsonian, after all) and informative liner notes.

Western Railroad Songs ()

This three-disc, 50-song set may be the most comprehensive collection specifically dealing with the transcontinental lines. The songs cover an astounding range of topics and material, and as an added bonus, you can download a few sample tracks from the net. Visit: http://www.mcneilmusic.com/railroad.html
