  3. thanks kabar here are some ill add: hobo by Ted Conover---amazon.com Rolling Nowhere : Riding the Rails with America's Hoboes by Ted Conover --amazon.com Citizen Hobo: How a Century of Homelessness Shaped America Kenneth L. Kusmer --amazon. this one is more of a history Hobo : A Young Man's Thoughts on Trains and Tramping in America by Eddy Joe Cotton--amazon.com here is a summary of what Hopping Freight Trains In America", by Duffy Littlejohn like kabar said, its great. "Hopping freights is not only dangerous, it's illegal," Littlejohn says, but he loves the adventurousness of it and the startling view of the country it gives. He tells you what sort of clothing is best (dark, and wear gloves), why it's easier to hop a freight in rural areas than in cities, why it's hard to find a train on Sundays and Mondays, how to know where you're going (try Rand McNally's Handy Railroad Atlas of the United States), and why railroad workers (except bulls and managers) are, in general, friendly to riders. He describes hobo jungles. He gives an insider's view of unions and characterizes various companies regarding their attitudes toward free rides (many of them look the other way, Littlejohn says, because riders are often migrant workers; the produce they harvest may end up as freight). Littlejohn gives a colorful history of railroads and how they affected cities--for instance, the "wrong side of the tracks" originally referred to where immigrants settled after the railyards were established. Finally, Littlejohn suggests where you can hop a freight in every state and most Canadian provinces, with some asides for certain cities. (In New Orleans, "get ready for some long bridge walks.") amazon.com of course....my new favorite shopping site

  16. iv kinda been wondering about this same topic. id imagine it depends on the time they are there. you could watch when a train stops and see what the workers do, but that could be very time consuming. im coining the new phrase, "ask kabar"
  17. bumpski alright kabar, hats off to you. i read this whole thread, although it did take me a couple of days, and it was great. i had some questions but now i have forgotten them. ill come back when i rember, but dont stop posting. and if u did think about writing a book, a autobiography is a better idea than a freight book. your life story would be much more interesting and original than a freight hopping guide. see duffy littlejohn's freight train hoppin in america --great book. can you make a list of videos and movies that you cant thjink up off the top of your head. ++edit-i know you have listed books and movies but an organized list woiudl be great++thanks kabar
