    Reading a good book is like having the author right there in your room telling it to you. That's why I don't read good books.

    Get yourself a book called BOMB THE SUBURBS, it has a good segment on the fr8 movement... I read it and it wasn't the best but you do learn some useful information... well I did anyway. :D

    I have also read freight train cars... decent stuff, even though it feels like a childrens book....

    also I am currently reading: classic american railroads and the rail lines of southern new england and a book about sailor tattoos... all at the same time

    bobmb the suburbs is more about the idea that kids should invade the suburbs with graff....the freight section was weak at best.

    Rolling Nowhere is by Ted Conover, an excellent book. He even mentions one of his riding buddies doing "phantom strikes again" streaks on boxcars, some of that guys stuff is still visible on old southern pacific cars. The book came out around 1981 and is still probably the most up to date book written about factual hopping experiences.
