Known as Legendary Larry to many-and not so legendary to others-Larry Drawdy worked 40 years on the railroad, 37 of them clean and sober. A longtime Amtrak passenger train conductor, Drawdy delivers an insider's tell-all in his politically incorrect memoir of the railroad back in the day when the only thing that changed for sure was that they took the signs down, diversity and harassment were just words in the dictionary, and only a few dared to come out of the closet.
Tales of fellow train crew members abound. Hysterical passenger stories guaranteed. Drawdy's stories deliver heart and precision from a man who was arguably one of the safest conductors to ever be in charge of a train.
