I remember a good friend of mine, Clay Ewing, who I met in the mid-seventies, who said he rode the rails, I believe in the thirties and forties. He spoke of playing with the Duke Ellington Orchestra in Quincy, Illinois one night, hopping the rail and playing with Count Basie in Kansas City the next night. He was a trumpet player. (God rest him.) A mighty fine human being.
