The Roundhouse is Our House, and having topics requested by you on the show is highly important to meet that goal.

The Boulder Valley Railway Historical Society is calling it a day and selling their railroad equipment. You can check out the list of rolling stock here, including a former Great Western GP9.
Would you like to be given a full-size EMD F-Unit from someone on Craigslist!?! Click here to see how you could own an Alaska Railroad locomotive.
The City of Colorado Springs will lease D&RGW 168 to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. This locomotive is on the National Register of Historic Places and once pulled a train carrying President William Taft.
Mike Huhn Interview (4:25)
Mike has been a conductor with Norfolk Southern for four years. He initially pursued a career in filmmaking before applying for NS. Mike talks about how the Eagle Scouts prepared him for the job, how the career has contributed to his love of trains, and what you can do to improve your chances of being hired.
Question of the Day (46:05)
I read some responses to the question I asked in Episode 008 and provide you with a new one: Name a person, organization, or topic you want to have on the show. Of course, this is always something I want you to share with me, but for this particular week I will be selecting responses to share on the show. Let me know and I will respond to your comments in our next episode.
