Rail Junkie
Hi everyone! I'm new to the site and have been railfanning on and off for years but just recently decided to venture out again with my camera, scanner and somewhat-loyal hound to see what's trackside after a career looking at the world via satellites and high-altitude planes. I'm currently in the middle of a double move between Colorado Springs, CO and Marble Falls, TX (near Austin) with the hope of settling in the Kansas City area this summer, which has allowed for a lot of railfanning trips so far !!! :) is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
