Biog: US Railway Travelogue

US Railway Travelogue is presented by Tim Davies, from Wrecclesham.

The series documents Tim’s decision to embark on a two week holiday on the US railway system, taking advantage of such iconic Amtrak trains as ‘The Coast Starlight’, ‘The Empire Builder’ and ‘The California Zephyr’.

“I’ll be seeing the sights and meeting the staff and passengers on a rail journey across 14 of the US states,” explains Tim.  “It will cover the places visit, people met, travelling by plane, bus and most importantly, train.”

His trip takes in San Francisco, Emeryville, Portland (Oregon), Spokane (WA), Whitefish (MT), Shelby (MT), Havre (MT), Minot (MD), St Paul-Minneapolis (MN), and Chicago (IL), then onto Omaha (NE), Denver (CO), Salt Lake City (UT) and back to San Francisco.

The series is accompanied by its own Pinterest board – click here.

While this is Tim’s first podcast series, Tim is no stranger to the radio studio.  He used to be part of the team at Hospital Radio Wakefield over thirty years ago – the same place where a certain Chris Moyles could be found doing his thing before moving on to fame and fortune at BBC Radio 1 and Radio X.
