Karl Zimmermann has been a contributor to the travel sections of various newspapers across the country, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Washington Post. He is author of The GrandLuxe Express (IUP, 2007).
"A fine writer with a keen eye for descriptions of the odd corners of the world reached by these highwater marks of the railroad tide." Francis H. Parker, co-author of Railroads of Indiana "Karl Zimmermann's observations will surely bring back memories to many readers, and his richly developed commentary on cultural and historical details will provide an exciting introduction for those who have never traveled to some of the faraway places described." J. Parker Lamb, author of Evolution of the American Diesel Locomotive
