Nice to know some Americans are as railway mad as their British counterparts. A chap I nearly married had a collection of records of train noises which he and his friends played incessantly - AND DISCUSSED!!!!!
In the states we call these people "foamers" because they foam at the mouth at the sight of a train!
While in Wales, I got a passport to ride "The Great Little Trains of Wales". The ones I rode were:
Vale of Rheidol
Welsh Highland Porthmadog
Welshpool and Llanfair
I worked it out so I could ride 2 of them in one day!
