My Life with TrainsMy Life with Trains

Memoir of a Railroader

Jim McClellan

Book published by Indiana University Press

Named one of the "75 People You Should Know" by Trains Magazine, Jim McClellan was a railroading legend and one of the railroad industry’s titans. An iconic and innovative executive, McClellan participated in the creation of both Amtrak and Conrail and worked for the Norfolk Southern, the New York Central, US Railway Association, and the Federal Railroad Administration. My Life with Trains combines a world-class photographer’s love of railroading with the insights of a government and railroad official. The book provides a short historical overview of the changes in the industry, recounts McClellan’s experience at various railroads, and offers personal reflections on a lifetime of working with and chasing trains. My Life with Trains covers sixty years as observed by a legendary railroad strategist.

Jim McClellan was a veteran of the railroad industry.
