Just a short week 'til our first gig with the "new" Line-Up! We'll let you know a.s.a.p. how it went and also how it'll go on! ;-)


On26th of July, in Hamburg we'll play our first gig with the "new" Line-Up. It's "just" a private party, but for us it is a statement because no matter what happens in "Railroad", we'll walk forward. We wanna thank all the musicians who reacted to our advertisement and came to our auditions! Last but not least we wanna thank our loyal fans, those who never lost the faith in us and supported us with countless mails! More Live-dates very, very soon!


We had to cancel ALL gigs for 2014 and our Studiosessions in January, because of the disinterest, arrogance and disaffection of one person! Nevertheless we wanna wish you all a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!


We are searching for a new guy on Lead Guitar! If you think you're the right one, please contact us!


A new gig in 2014 is confirmed. We'll rock the "Kamphuis" in Quickborn, Germany on April 12th!


The gig at CAFE STENZEL is cancelled!


We hadn't many gigs the last 2 month because we are pretty busy with our new album. But now we start to work on our agenda for 2014. Still in 2013, on Nov 8th we'll play at the "Cafe Stenzel" in Hamburg, Germany. The new material sounds pretty good and we hope to get our first recordings of some of the new songs in August during our rehearsals. We'll hear ...!


It was again, the real "Rock'n'Roll" to be on tour with the guys from Little Caesar! Guess it'll be continued, pretty soon!;-) One short word about the "Meisenfrei Blues Club", Bremen! WOW!!!

Yesss, we got it and nearly in time because we said round Dec/28th 2011 should be the release! It worked, it looks good and of course it sounds pretty good(that's more important)!So, you think now ..."what the hell, is he talking about?" ... you should know there's a new Railroad CD out now! "...on the run...-live in the netherlands" is it called and right now it's on its way to numerous critic-pages in the www. For all those here some important information about production, mix and mastering. Olman Viper @ Hertzwerk, nullzweistudio Hamburg(www.Hertzwerk.de) didn't use any overdubs etc in the studio and simply mixed and mastered the recordings. What you get to hear is what a pure "RAILROAD" gig sounds like these days. Loud, on the level, dirty, not always 1000% correct, but rockin', rollin' and asskickin'!

Of course you can buy the CD right now! Click into our "shop-section" and then on the CD cover, or simply an E-Mail to shop[at]Railroad-rocks.de with your order and adress and for 14,- EUR(incl shipping within Europe)you'll get the CD to your home!

We wish all of you a happy new year and hopefully see you at one of our shows in 2012!


Wow, what was that? The Schraub-Bar nearly "sold out" and for germany a never expierenced atmosphere. Bückeburg and surroundings take a bow from us!We'll be back, for sure. Nice to see some well known faces in the "front" as well. Always good!!

A big "thank you" to Karin, Janis and the biggest Boogiemaniac in Germany, Christian aka Prostie! Unbelievable what you 3 did for us!

Since friday we got our Master CD and we didn't stop listening to it in search for some weak points, but til now we didn't find anything! 14 Rockers will be on the CD and additional to that, the drive, fun and dirt of an original "Railroad gig" will be included! We hope that the CD is available til christmas.
