Railwayfan - Trainspotter My Hobby

Those who are "trainspotters" make an effort to 'spot' all of a certain type of rolling stock. This might be a particular class of locomotive, a particular type of carriage or all the rolling stock of a particular company. To this end, they collect and exchange detailed information about the movements of locomotives and other equipment on the railway network, and become very knowledgeable about its operations.

Train photography is a common activity of railfans. Most railfans do their photographing from public property, unless they have permission to use or enter a specific private property.

My current activities

My hobby extends to all aspects of rail transport systems. Railfans also may have one or more particular concentrations of interest, such as:
  •     Railroad locomotives and rolling stock
  •     Still-used or disused railroad lines, bridges, tunnels, stations, and other infrastructure
  •     Railroad history
  •     Railroad photography
  •     Railroad signaling
  •     Railway gaming
  •     Timetable collecting
  •     Railway art or architecture
  •     Railway operations, economics or commerce
  •     Railway preservation/restoration
