There was a time when passenger trains tied the towns of Tennessee together. The days, of course, passenger train service has all but disappeared. But for some, the fascination with those big, powerful engines remains. Rob Wilds is one of those people and so he was delighted to find a place where he could do two of his favorite things: watch trains pass by and eat good food. You can do those things too, at the depot bar and grill in Springfield.
Rob Wilds has been a part of the Tennessee Crossroads family since 1993. As one of our most frequent producers, and the recipient of several journalism awards throughout his various careers, Rob finds that the best reward for his work is meeting the fascinating people and visiting the interesting places he encounters in his travels. A presence in television, radio and print reporter for more than 20 years, Rob is a teacher, writer, producer and director as well as an actor (with appearances in feature films, television shows and on stage).
