Let’s Look At The Possibilities

In my last posting, I mentioned that my family and I were about to embark on a two week vacation that will have us trekking across several states and that it should provideo ample opportunities for railfanning. We have now been on this trip since last Friday at 3:15pm CT.

I thought I would share links to train rides/museums in the different states we will be crossing, that some of are possibilities for us to be able to experience. I was going to just write out the list for each state, where each is located, etc but that would take for-ever.

We’ll begin with Illinois, where the freight railroads are the same as they are here in Kansas City, Missouri. They include BNSF, CSX, CanadIan Pacific, Canadian National, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific.

Next up is Indiana. The major freight railroads are Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, CSX and Norfolk Southern, though there are many other short line freight roads in use as well.

In previous trips out there, we have also spent time in Delaware and New York. Here are some train rides info for the two of them.

In Delaware, we are back to the major freight railroads being CSX and Norfolk Southern.

I hope that if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Personal Lord & Savior, and are you are continuing to follow Him every day of your life. And when it comes to trains and everything that is railroading, that you continue leaving Legacies…On The Rails!
