Update 6/13/2015: There is some hope that the website will be updated in the near future. As time allows, I plan to get back to work going through my library of old photos, as well as maybe some new photos as well. While the new era of heavy policing and trespassing enforcement makes getting photos of many of my old stomping grounds difficult if not impossible, it is my goal to proceed with the hobby following the new rules of staying off of railroad and private property.

Some commentary about our hobby of Railfanning:
As a responsible Railfan, I support Operation Lifesaver. Please support them by visiting their web site and participating in any activities they organize in your area. They believe that Education and Personal Responsibility are the keys to Railroad Safety.
While Railfanning, please respect Private Property (Railroad and otherwise). Safety should ALWAYS come first, and all other considerations should follow accordingly. Leave locations you visit in better condition than they were when you arrived. Please be courteous to any Railroad or security employees you may come across during your outings. Also, respect their workspace: They are at work, so allow them to do their jobs without interference. I also encourage you to report any suspicious activity or dangerous situations (track obstructions, dangerous trespassing, etc...) you observe along the right-of-way to either local authorities or directly to the affected Railroad (most Class 1's have a toll free emergency number--shortlines should be in the local phone book or use local emergency numbers). By doing this, you may be able to prevent injury or financial loss for the Railroads and possible harm or injury to Railroad Employees.
