Starr R5158. The story of railroad evangelism carried out by the Baptists in the American West, featuring the cars Glad Tidings and Messenger of Peace. These chapel cars served as mobile churches and the railroad lines carried them at no charge to the missionaries as a benevolent service for the thousands of workers who lived along the lines in undeveloped stations or hamlets.

Charles Herbert Rust (1869-1953), the first missionary to serve aboard the Glad Tidings chapel car. The mission work along the rail lines was for both frontier settlers and railway workers. "His book, A Church on Wheels, which was published in 1905, recounted his experience on Glad Tidings and was a considerable contribution to chapel car ministry." - World Religions and Spirituality: Railroad Chapel Cars
