This Train is a rock band, formed in 1993 in Chicago, Illinois by bassist Mark Robertson, and Guitarist Jordan Richter. After other drummers came and went, the pair added Cobra Joe in time for their first “official” release, Your Soaking In It!. Robertson had previously been a member of the bands The Altar Boys, Brighton and Allies. The band quickly became known for their quirky Alternative/Rockabilly/Punkabilly/Cowpunk style of music (which they called Cowpunkabilly) and their equally quirky lyrics.

This Train is perhaps best known as Rich Mullins’ opening act for several of his final tours. Robertson also became a member of Mullins’ A Ragamuffin Band. Following the “break up” of This Train, Robertson went on to becoming a founding member of The Legendary Shack Shakers, a punkabilly band based in Nashville. He also continues to produce Christian artists: specifically, a release by a man who lived through the accident that took Rich Mullins’ life, Mitch McVicker.
