“The Cross-Tie provides railroad-related information in an easy-to-read format that is both appealing to railfans and the casual observer,” said Todd DeFeo, who publishes the monthly newsletter.

DeFeo added: “The information is presented so railroad buffs will benefit from the news, especially the cover story, focusing on one particular issue more in depth. However, The Cross-Tie is designed that someone, who may not be the most die-hard railroad buff, will also be able to glance over a copy and casually glean information about railroads.”
