I love trains, and I love signals. I am not an expert. My
webpages reflect what I find on the topic of the page. This is
something I have fun with while trying to help others.
Please Note: Since the main focus of my two websites is railroad
signals, the railfan guides are oriented towards the signal fan being
able to locate them. For those of you into the modeling aspect of
our hobby, my indexa
page has a list of almost everything railroad oriented I can think of to
provide you with at least a few pictures to help you detail your pike.
If this is a railfan page, every effort has been made to make sure that
the information contained on this map and in this railfan guide is
correct. Once in a while, an error may creep in :-)
My philosophy: Pictures and maps are worth a thousand words, especially
for railfanning. Text descriptions only get you so far, especially
if you get lost or disoriented. Take along good maps.... a GPS is
OK to get somewhere, but maps are still better if you get lost! I
belong to AAA, which allows you to get local maps for free when you
visit the local branches. ADC puts out a nice series of county
maps for the Washington DC area, but their state maps do not have the
railroads on them. If you can find em, I like the National
Geographic map book of the U.S..... good, clear, and concise graphics,
and they do a really good job of showing you where tourist type
attractions are, although they too lack the railroads. Other notes
about specific areas will show up on that page if known.
Aerial shots were taken from either Google Maps or Bing Maps as
noted. Screen captures are made with Snagit,
a Techsmith product... a great
tool if you have never used it!
By the way, floobydust is a term
I picked up 30-40 years ago from a National Semiconductor data book, and
means miscellaneous and/or other stuff.
Pictures and additional information is always needed if anyone feels
inclined to take 'em, send 'em, and share 'em, or if you have something
to add or correct.... credit is always given! Please be NICE!!!
