the train

 

If you wonder why a train was chosen to represent this mission
let us give you a little history.


One of the first forms of transportation in our modern world was the train.

Roads of rails known as "wagon-ways" were built as far back as the 1550's in Germany. The first steam engine was developed in 1803 in Wales.

The first passenger train was patented in 1821.

The train has been used to bring people together since its invention.
It linked the east and west of our country together to make us one.
The whistle-stop idea came to life in the days of the early American west. President Abraham Lincoln helped found the historical Union Pacific. Politicians found the train to be the best form of transportation to reach local folks in all parts of the country.
When the US needed to rally its citizens after World War II, "The Freedom Train" was born. The train brought our country together touring the US with a unifying message.

Merle and Bob have a vision to bring back focus on the importance of the train as a form of alternative transportation and its use as a carrier of products and goods. They are also using it as a symbol of unity that most countries of the world all have in common.

In the last decade, the train industry has made major breakthroughs in going green. Alternative energy resources are being used more everyday, while Sir Richard Branson's Virgin rail system in Europe is already being run on pure vegetable oil.
The railroad system is once again on the visionary side of our future.

Come visit our train that has heart, soul, education and history. Experience this incredible 3 year goal: unifying the world and solving an important growing problem that we share together. Make the negative a positive in a fun and simple message.

We are in the process of choosing the rail cars need for this special train. We will post the pictures of the working part and exhibition part of the train, including our green acoustic stage-car as they become available.

Check back often and catch the updates as they become available.
