A New Railfanning Review is Here

Several years ago I produced a podcast titled “Railfanning Review.” It was available through iTunes and Railfanning.org. It was an extension of The Cross-Tie newsletter I published starting in 2003.

For several reasons, I stopped producing the podcast, but ever since then, I have thought about bringing it back. There were a few false starts over the years, and it never came to fruition.

I am proud to say I am bringing it back in a new format. I am also excited to announce the launch of a new newsletter; the first issue will deploy this week.

Much like The Cross-Tie, this new newsletter will highlight a mix of railroad news, history and those quirky events that make railfanning so much fun.

Please visit railfanning.org/newsletter/ to sign up.

Over the past six months or so, I have written a pair of books. One is about the Western & Atlantic Railroad and is set to publish July 1.

The second is a chronicle of the Memphis, Clarksville & Louisville Railroad. I have been writing this book for far too long. While I do not have a specific publication date yet, I anticipate it will hit the shelves this August; the draft is due in a few weeks.

These two books have inspired me to revisit content on Railfanning.org. So, please check back for more news and updates.

I am excited for what the year will bring, and we will see you down the tracks.
