Welcome! Do you have any particular favorite railroad(s)
or locomotive types you like? Are you a modeler?

I myself love the former Southern Pacific RR, and like a number of
different types of locomotives. I think my favorite steam locomotives
are the Northerns: the big 4-8-4s. I have a number of favorite diesel
models: SDP-45s, Es, Fs, SD-45s, and DDA40Xs (Centennials). 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.
