Frank Ackerman

Frank Ackerman began his 32 years career with the National Park Service as a Park Ranger at Dinosaur National Park. He continued his ranger duties at Death Valley National Park before completing his career at Cape Cod National Seashore as Chief of Interpretation. Upon retirement he was invited to join the staff of Amtrak’s Adirondack and Vermonter trains as their on-board lecturer. But he missed the west and after a time returned to Nevada to become the Curator of Education at the Nevada State Railroad Museum. Located in Carson City, the museum preserves the railroad heritage of Nevada, including locomotives and cars of the famous Virginia and Truckee Railroad. Much of the museum equipment was obtained from Hollywood studios, where they were often featured in movies and television. Frank looks forward to joining you for this adventure through these dramatic and diverse landscapes of Colorado and sharing with you the incredible history of these historic railways.
