Meet the Featherbed Railroad team
There is nothing like working with family, and that's the heart of the Featherbed Railroad. But we're all a big nutty family
Peggy Barthel got her Master's in Geology on almost the same day as she and Tony bought the Featherbed Railroad. While she had worked for EarthTech on the project of cleaning up Edwards Air Force Base, today she enjoys meeting wonderful people like yourself and also puts in four days a week working for Lake County. Peggy also is a big fan of the desert and did her Master's Thesis on the source of the groundwater in Zzyzx. At Zzyzx, there is a small groundwater pond about as big as a Jacuzzi tub in a Featherbed Railroad suite and there are native Mohave Tui Chub fish there. Why the water remains at the same level and at almost the same temperature year-round is what Peggy figured out.
Tony Barthel still runs a popular automotive website, Curbside, which features an on-line calendar of automotive events and articles on vintage cars.
Peggy's niece, Sarah Frakes, moved from Colorado to join the Featherbed Family. Sarah's the one who keeps the rooms in spiffy shape.
Sarah's team includes Sydney Drozdowski, Flora Ibarra and Sarah Bowen who are all studying hard so they don't have to work here much longer. The silliness of working with a family that actually thinks cabooses belong in the front yard can be trying.
