Off the Rails with Station to Station, part II

Memoirs from the train… on Doug Aitken’s Station to Station tour. Originally published via Art Nerd New York.

Saturday, September 7th

At last: our historic nine-car Station to Station Express. The train was comprised of meticulously refurbished vintage rail cars. Train producer Adam Auxier killed it!

We were giddy as we navigated the narrow passageways between train cars. We hoped that we’d get better at walking a straight line while the train was moving… maybe by Santa Fe?

We spent most of our time in the Super Dome, our dining car. Chef Leif Hendendal prepared lunch and dinner for us using seasonal produce and humanely raised heritage breed animals procured from local farms and ranches along our journey route.
