Mass Transit, Locomotives, and Lemons with guest Rafi the Railfan

Cars & Comrades published on

In this episode Bryant talks with Rafi, a train conductor/engineer with RTD (the mass transit authority in Denver) about his experiences driving taxis, race cars, buses, and trains.  Rafi provides some knowledge on the difference between light and heavy rail, the streetcar conspiracy that inspired Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and the benefits of socialized medicine.  They also spend some time nerding out about Toyota chassis codes, Cadillac head studs, vintage railroad signals, steam locomotives, Amtrak, and hearses.

But first Conner and Bryant discuss the recent violence in Palestine.
