Frank Ackerman

Frank Ackerman began his 32-year career with the National Park Service as a Park Ranger at Dinosaur National Monument. Following Army service as a railway transportation lieutenant, he continued his ranger duties at Death Valley National Park and Voyageurs National Park before completing his career at Cape Cod National Seashore as Chief of Interpretation and Cultural Resource Management. 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, and then Director,at the Nevada State Railroad Museum. Frank first visited New England and its scenic railways in 1969, while stationed at Ft. Eustis, Virginia. He resumed trips (and train riding) in Maine and New Hampshire after coming to Cape Cod in 1981. He looks forward to joining you for this adventure through these dramatic and diverse landscapes of New England and sharing with you the incredible history of these historic railways.
