Railfanning, Trainspotting and Foaming…

Railfanning has become one of my favorite hobbies in the past few years. I’m no where as prolific as some photographers, but I try to keep my camera at the ready. Most of my day-to-day fanning has been in Northeastern Wisconsin, which is where I call home. Having extended family in Nebraska, Illinois and Tennessee means access to some great railfan spots during visits. I’d love to expand my regions, perhaps visits farther out west or to the south to see what new railroads I can add to my collection. I’ve organized the collections below alphabetically by state and province. Newer photos will appear toward the top of each section.
