Prairie Public Radio Seeks Train Stories

By Staff | Jul 2, 2015

North Dakota Public Radio producer Merrill Piepkorn, Fargo, is gathering people’s stories about life in towns along old passenger rail lines for a project called “North Dakota Rail Towns.” People from Rugby and nearby communities are invited to share their train experiences with Piepkorn at 2 p.m., Monday, July 13, at Prairie Village Museum, Rugby.

“We hope people will make the project a success by spending an afternoon sharing their train memories and experiences with their friends and neighbors,” Piepkorn said. He will follow up on the group conversation by conducting personal interviews and recording individual stories in the Rugby area.

Rugby is one of four communities selected for “North Dakota Rail Towns,” a collaborative project of Prairie Public Radio and Big Shed, a media company specializing in memories. Many of the edited stories will air on Prairie Public Radio. They’ll also be shared online on the Big Shed and Prairie Public Radio websites. Refreshments will be served. Museum admission is free to all who participate in the gathering.
