About this Campaign Trains Blog

This blog chronicles the remarkable history of campaign trains in American politics. It features information and resources about the politicians who rode the rails seeking votes or support for their policies, programs, and initiatives.

We welcome any stories, anecdotes, or memorabilia you’d like to share about whistle-stopping candidates or elected officials.

This site in maintained by Edward Segal, a campaign train expert who planned and managed an old-fashioned 102-mile whistle-stop train tour for a member of Congress.  He has written about whistle-stop campaign trains for the Washington Post, American Journalism Review, and the American Political Items Collectors.

Segal is a former political campaign manager, journalist, author, and public relations expert.   For more information, visit Segal’s website at PublicRelations.com.
