Meet the Featherbed Railroad team
Peggy and Tony Barthel
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 had an event planning business, Sounds Like Fun! Multimedia, for since 1986 before moving north to the Featherbed Railroad. Tony's a huge computer nerd so you might talk tech with him, or talk cars. Or trains.
Since Trina came aboard, guests have been so happy with how clean the rooms are. Using all green cleaning supplies, Trina is so great at keeping the cabooses ship shape. But she also might be found checking you in, rebuilding a room, painting and so much more.
We get lots and lots of comments about how good the grounds look. Tony and Peggy have nothing to do with that, you can credit Jim Gee, our groundskeeper for that. He's here at least once a day, often twice, taking care of the grounds. He's a great guy who's former Air Force and is truly a blessing to Tony & Peggy.
Sandra is another major multi tasked who always has a smile on her face. She works the office, helps with rooms, works at breakfast and more. Any time you have any interaction with Sandra, you'll always have a smile on your face.
