    I guess Duffy Littlejohn has changed publishers, or maybe he has gone "self-published." Anyway, he reports on Train-hoppers.com that his book is still available, with a slightly increased price, though.

    "Hopping Freight Trains in America." $18.80, post-paid
    Zephyr Rhoades Press
    P.O. Box 1999
    Silver City, New Mexico
    (505) 534-1888
    FAX (505) 534-2888

    email: [email protected]

    Hopefully, people will treat this information with the respect it deserves. Littlejohn has educated thousands of readers in how to hop trains. I figure he's probably saved a lot of lives, because people don't make the sort of mistakes that they used to make, as much. The book rocks. It's WORTH EVERY CENT. If you want to hop, READ LITTLEJOHN'S BOOK FIRST. Study it. Memorize it. Follow the rules, and stay alive.

    I still haven't gotten a copy, though I've read it many many times. No matter how much you think you know it will still teach you things, and give you a definative answer on lots of stuff you've been wondering about. Glad its still in print to some degree....

    for those of you that don't give a fuck about hopping, near the end of the book it lists every city in your state where you could catch a fr8 out of, which may lead to you finding your next favorite yard near bumfuk. you should see how many yards it lists just for chicago.

    I check my copy out from the public library here.
