    Not sure in your area ior not, but try Altamontress. com.

    This guy owns the company that among several railroad/railfan related items, also publishes timetables for public use.

    A good site with all the AAR frequencies can be found here. It is listed by channel number and RR.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks to all.

    This is a wealth of info. Now to get out with the scanner and camera.

    Radio Freqs

    Just to let everyone know. There is ONLY 100 radio frequencies (channels) used in the USA. A 100+ channel scanner would be great to have!

    However, if you are a Ham Radio Operator you can find repeaters or simplex frequencies in which Hams talk about trains! Look for me on 146.475MHz and 3.913MHz LSB.

    Just A Word Of Caution

    In this day and time, considering all that is going on being on or near railroad property with a scanner and a camera might be a bad idea (especially around a major city). Try to get written permisson from a yardmaster or division supervisor.

    I know some of you have stated in the past that its your "right" to railfan, and well it should be, but we're living in a different world for now. Don't cause yourself a whole lot of inconvience by placing yourself under suspicion. Your explanation of "railfaning" may not be enough if confronted by the authorities.
