ATLANTA — Railfanning.org is celebrating 15 years of ferroequinology during 2017.
The site, according to internet domain registry records, was first registered on Oct. 7, 2002.
Railfanning.org began with a simple design and with few pages designed as a site to display photos and information about select places to watch trains. Since that time, it has grown into a repository of historical articles, industry news and railroad-related photo galleries.
Over the years, the site has been highlighted in several top publications, including the Florida Times-Union and The Los Angeles Times.
Railfanning.org aims to celebrate the fun aspects of railfanning and provide information to casual and more dedicated railfans alike. The website regularly profiles railroad museums and train-watching hotspots in addition to its oft-updated Railfanning.org News Wire.
To celebrate the anniversary, the site is planning to publish a slew of special features, including photo galleries with never-before-published images.
