Railway enthusiasts, or rail buffs, are passionate and dedicated people prepared to go far in pursuit of their hobby. Their particular interest may be locomotives and rolling stock, disused railroad lines, bridges, tunnels, stations and other infrastructure, history, photography, signalling, railway operations, preservation and restoration, or many other aspects of railway life. The scope of the subject is so large that fans sometimes concentrate their interest on a particular country, town, operating company, field of operations, or era in history or a combination of any of the above. Railfans in the United States are sometimes referred to as foamers, especially by American rail workers, jokingly suggesting that they foam at the mouth in their excitement over trains. This invaluable guide, compiled by Trains magazine staff and contributors from first-hand knowledge and edited by Randy Rehberg, will help you to share the thrill of more than 100 of the best train-watching locations in North America, from Winnemucca to Anchorage and from St. Augustine to Boston. Maps of the area, site descriptions, excellent colour photographs and approximate number of daily trains are included. There is also sound advice on how to be a smarter train watcher, stay safe and take successful train photos. Driving directions, nearby points of interest, local options for dining, lodging and other activities make this an essential guide for every railfan, and a book that will inspire many novices to take up this fascinating pursuit.
