Please help to make this map more complete by sending missing yards to me here


Note: Most railfans I know are interested in more than just trains.  So, I have made an effort to put other things of possible interest to the railfan when visiting the areas the guides cover.  These include things like Fire and Police Stations, Museums other than train or transit, bridges, Signals, or just plain old interesting stuff.  I am always looking for help, pictures, additional information or corrections, so please do not hesitate to shoot me an email.

If you wonder how I make my make my maps, click here.

My contact info is here.

Both Google Maps and Bing's Maps now have things like restaurants, KMarts, Walmarts, auto stores, and gas stations on their maps.  I prefer Bing maps and their Birds Eye view to look for things before I go out, for it is better than the typical satellite view available on both sights.  HOWEVER, as of late 2017, they have screwed it up to a fair-thee-well, I mean BIG-TIME, they might as well not even offer the service anymore it sucks so badly.... sorry Bing.... I miss the old ways!..... I sometimes use Google's street level views to augment the birds eye view.  If you use Mapquest for directions, just keep in mind that they can sometimes be misleading or take you way out of your way.

DIAMOND CROSSINGS

Most if not all junctions, or crossings of one railroad with another have some sort of protection so trains don't go banging into each other, below is a small sampling of what is out there that I have come across in my travels.  A wide variety exists, although the protection is being more and more by plain old "darth vader" type color light signals. 

As standard high type color lights become the norm for protection, older methods are become a rarer find, such as simples swing gates (Tyler TX),  tilting targets, and even searchlight signals.

Some of the pages started out just to highlight the diamond, others are full blown railfan guides for the area that include a diamond crossing somewhere.  The index page for this section used to have it's own page, but now, can only be found here!

Albert Lea MN......

TRANSIT and COMMUTER RAIL SYSTEMS

I have consolidated my individual index pages for Light Rail Systems and Heavy Rail/Metro Systems onto this one page, and added commuter Rail - it makes maintenance a little easier :-).  These pages were originally conceived to highlight the various signal systems used on transit systems, but many have developed into Railfan Guides in their own right.

Transit signals are quickly becoming the only place in railroading where you can find variety.  All the way from the simple LED bar signals of Houston, to the overdone signals of the Minneapolis system, with their heavy duty heavy rail style color position lights.  In between, you can find almost anything.

With commuter railroads, the majority of them are guests on a host railroad, and they do not have signals per se of their own...... SEPTA in Philadelphia is one of the exceptions, where they took over the commuter rail operations of the Reading and the Pennsylvania railroads, and freight traffic runs pretty much on their own and separate tracks.

If you have anything to add, correct, or contribute, please email me here.  You can make a difference as can be seen with the railfan guide to Newark NJ, where ALL of the info came from one "anonymous donor".

  HISTORIES 

Sometime in 2013, I started putting the histories of some of the railroads, as long as it doesn't take up a book as it would with the Pennsy or Union Pacific, on the pages the history would affect.  Along with this, I usually put a number of excerpts of vintage USGS maps on those pages too, because I "came across" a most excellent resource for them at the University of Texas website.

This is an index to places where I have histories of the railroads, or sometimes the towns they go thru.  The links are to the page the history appears on.

the "Big Four Railroad"

the Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St Louis & Chicago Rwy  (short history/milestones only)

the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago, and St Louis RR (CCC&StL)

the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, & Indianapolis Rwy (CCC&I)  (short history/milestones only)

the Fort Dodge, Des Moines & Southern Rwy

the Hocking Valley Rwy

the Indiana, Bloomington & Western Rwy  (short history/milestones only)

New York City: the Staten Island Rapid Transit




  LINKS TO OTHER RAILFAN GUIDES   

It is impossible for me to list all of the other railfan guides individually, therefore, this list is comprised mostly of other lists of guides.  As far as the individual railfan pages go, beware, there are a number of dead links, and there are a larger number of websites that have not been updated for years, sometimes as much as ten years!
