90-Mile View: Eric Peterson

Apr 12, 2013

How many of us followed a childhood dream into the job of our dreams?  Eric Peterson did.

By the age of 8 Eric had his first train set and taken his first ride on the railroad.  Even then he knew what he wanted, to be a train engineer, and not for just any rail line, but for Amtrak.  In this 90-Mile View installment, Steve Kraske talks with Eric about making it to Choo Choo U and what the recent news on Amtrak ridership means to him and the future of the passenger train service he loves.
