Hey everyone!

My name's Jake and I'm in Austin. I've been around trains for a long time, and am also a photography buff. I signed up on the site, at least initially, to figure out how I can unearth times/dates/locations for freight trains around here. Anyone willing to provide some info on how to discover this info?
