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.
