    if your really into freights you should be checking it out anyways, but especially this month. there are two really good articles in this issue.
    One on the TTX company, which really helps explain the operations of Autoracks and Railboxes, the unique pool system they operate in. I've gone into it on here before, but this article gives you better details...and a full explanation of how it came about.

    The other good article is on the return of transcontinental perishable trains (think reefers). breaking down how a shipment is sent from coast to coast...including lots of great shots of the car they follow, which has a Lisa piece by Mone on it. again...this will help you a great deal with understanding freight movements...especially reefers.

    just trust me on this one....

    from the december issue's RPO (Readers Letters):
    "It's not art

    The Photo Finish "Mysterious Destinations" in October [page 106] caught me at exactly the wrong time. I and other volunteers are about to finish up a 40-hour project to remove graffiti from two passenger cars owned by the Pacific Northwest Chapter of NRHS. In no way do I, nor should you, consider these vandals artists. For you to call the person who defaced this boxcar a "graffiti artist" is outrageous.

    "


    some railfans just hate us. But at the same time I'm not down with hitting museum pieces...thats like throwing etchbath on the window of a little mom and pop store.

    the december issue was good (every issue is) but I'm especially looking forward to january, cause they are going to have a big article on the West Side Line, in manhattan.
