Glad I'm moving to Houston! woo-hoo! If you're ever out this way, check out Cumberland, Maryland. I made the 3 hr. drive to there to check it out, and all I can say is dayyyyuuummmmn, huge, and tons of freights coming and going, I swear it was like every 10-15 min. I shot like 100 flicks there in half a day, all quality panels too. I remember seeing the sign upon entering Cumberland. Welcome to Cumberland, Md. A big wooden sign with a train on it...

I live in Houston and its huge but i sit down by washingtn ave. waiting for west bounds to move out the englewood yard heading to san antonio. But that spot sucks balls. its better in the afternoon but is there some certain spot i should know about. Rolling Nowhere would maybe know. I want to see trains every 15-30 min. I like Howell WYE in Atlanta. big railfan area and they got an actual bench you can sip 40s and chill its tight. I never down it but the Bailey yard would be sweet as fuck to bench. Maybe ill do that this summer.

bethlehem penn has some pretty chill yards,dallas has some cool spots,jacksonville and tyler texas if your willing to go to the ghetto has some pretty dope spots to bomb in i hear. and in and around kansas city.kc has mad freights like chicago but is alot easier to access.ive never been benching in chicago but i heard that alot of the yards our locked up tight.atleast from what i remember.wichita ks has some nice lay ups..thats with most of kansas.you can go to anywhere in kansas and find mad freights and no hassle from the workers or rr cops at all.your able to walk right into most of them with no problem.midwest has the best yards in my opinion.i lived in a town of 30k in KS and had atleast 10 trains go by my house every day and alot mad frequent stops.

the yard in tyler that has the best spot is from what i heard one of the worst parts of the city.your getting robbed with a quickness.i mean its texas for christs sake.everyone has a gun..its not la or anything but theres alot of robberies and carjackings up there.

 

 

 

 

also north carolina has some crazy good spots.i stayed out there by fayetteville for a while and had trains goin through daily.nice spot to crush some tankers down there...
