Show Description
Chimes are what the train man calls a whistle .Greenriver, Wyoming is where the Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy operated. Shep tells you the meanings of the different chimes. The people that work on the trains know everybody and house en route by sight. These old trains are still working, but now they are in India.
At 41:23 some music from somewhere creeps in and takes over the show drowning out Shep until 41:46 (Max's note: This was an in-studio broadcast glitch; it is not in the actual tape of the Shep broadcast)
