It NOT Dave Cooley, It's Dave Curlee who owns Altamont Press. Cooley does the Sonrisa Railroad Maps.Thanks guys, I appreciate the info. I recieved info back from David Cooley. From what I gathered it was just more than he wanted to continue with and that the information itself was becoming scarce due to the national security thing (the bi-weekly media terrorist scare). Guys, I may be off base here but I have a feeling that the railfans themselves are going to have to take up this job as a group for each area. Being an IT technician for many years I think this is possible. Maybe to put up some sort of database that is changeable on an individual basis. Kinda like wikipedia does but more specific and exclusive. I was already thinking about putting up a website to bring CA railfans into the same place so it might just be something I will have to look into. Again guys thanks for your info. I have been in many hobbies in my life but no one hobby has people who are more helpful than railfans. Its a great thing.
Oh lastly, do we know of any lists of railfan / amateur radio licensees out there?
Not sure, but I do know that there are a lot of us who have our "tickets" who are railfans. A few years ago when the UP 3985 came in, I was the de facto (and unofficial) "net control and organizer" here in the Kansas City area. We set up a "daisy-chain" with a lot us at different crossings. We would pass it along as it passed us bye down the line. I was so busy paying attention to the radio, I really did not get much of a chance to get any real good pictures.Oh lastly, do we know of any lists of railfan / amateur radio licensees out there?
