Been a member here for a while, but tend to shy away from post. I will be moving this spring to the Sacramento/Bay area. Are there many railfans from that area here or railfan groups. I belong to several southeastern railfan yahoo groups and looking for something similar.



I'm about 2 hours north of Sacramento near Redding. I only know of a few of us up here, but there are some beautiful mountain areas near us on the Shasta route and the Feather River route. 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.
