Hey Everybody,

just looking for a rail forum and found this one, names Tim, I hail from northern middle TN.I live near CSX Milepost 164.3, my favorite thing is listening to the defect detectors, I think the favorite would be UP detectors but I also like hunting down old Conrail detectors.

Howdy Tim and welcome. Right now I think I'd like to be in middle Tennessee.

You might find a few of my videos featuring detector talk to your liking.


Ok thanks, btw, you may have done this on purpose, but your first video is a pay-per-view(youtube rental), I can view the others without that restriction.

Not my intent at all. Very sorry about that. I think I've got it set now to free. Thanks for letting me know.
