This is the latest episode of The Roundhouse podcast, Nick interviews Bennett Levin.

"Growing up with the Pennsylvania Railroad, Bennett Levin would later go on to own a PRR Observation Car used by John F. Kennedy and original E-Unit locomotives. He shares his love of providing rare-mileage excursions, providing Veterans with an unforgettable train ride, and how to advocate for rail travel."

A podcast is a show consisting of a recording that can be listened to anytime, I download them onto my phone and listen when I get the chance.

Nick does a great job finding interesting people in both railway preservation and model trains to interview and gives great insights. It is well worth the listen.

I highly recommend The Roundhouse podcast, and give it a score of 100%, with a platinum certification. ;)

I don't know about JFK having used PRR #120, but it's claim to fame was having been the car that bore Bobby Kennedy's body from NY to DC on his funeral train in June of 1968.

Thank you for sharing the episode here and for the 100% score!

As for JFK riding the 120, according to Bennett he did, but you'll have to listen to the episode to find out why.
