    Railroading, Korean Style

    I've started scanning a few photos from when I was stationed in Korea back in 2003. I wish I had checked out KORAIL (Korean National Railroad) a little more often while I was there. All of the shots in this thread were taken in Seoul. These were also really quick scans so the quality is less...

    Private Passenger Cars

    The covered hopper thread got me thinking about other interesting rolling stock and I thought that a thread devoted to private passenger cars might be a good one. Here are a few to start the thread off. Georgia - Fort Lawn, SC - 7 Mar 10 Dover Harbor - Washington, DC - 10 Jun 11

    Trying Something New

    Beside Myself

    Well...behind myself actually, but beside sounded better for the subject. This was my first attempt at doing this. I bumped the camera a hair and the photos didn't exactly line up, so this is not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt.

    Chasing Autoracks - 01/28/11

    I took a day of leave today and decided to head west to Columbia, SC to check out the CSX and Norfolk Southern action there. Since I see plenty of CSX action in Sumter, I was hoping for more of the latter. The weather started off mostly cloudy when I first arrived in Columbia. I arrived to...

    Cloudy With A Chance Of Orange

    After planning to go for more than a month, I finally made my way to the South Carolina upstate to chase the Pickens Railway.
