The railroad that transformed America took six years and thousands of men to build. Once completed, the Transcontinental Railroad took an army of workers to keep the rails running. This Italian leather, limited-edition, signed reproduction of a railroad workman's jacket from the pre-1930s era faithfully resurrects the original design. Imported.
