Synopsis

Americans didn’t move West to build walls. THE RAILROADER explores the modern West, cultivated by a people unafraid of their differences. Through the lens of lifetime railroader John Bush, the film navigates the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, built in 1880, and its long struggle to survive in the twisting and remote mountains of New Mexico and Colorado while demystifying the lore of rugged individualism; and exposing a communal grit and spirit of togetherness that is America’s true heritage.
