Here are some of my favorite sites. I got a lot of information, guidance
and help from each of them - as well, they are a good read. If you think
you are a railfan, you ain't if you haven't been to these sites!
Rails in Toronto by Paul Cordingley
The BEST site around for
railfanning in the Toronto area - hands down. I can't tell you how many
times I've flipped back to this site over the years to get some
information or just to look around. The rail line map is a great asset, as
is his 'mileboard by mileboard' description of each rail line. One of the
best sites I've ever seen.
TrainsCan by Tim Green
Great railroading site - focusing on
anything and everything that is railroading in Canada. Information,
History, Photos, News - a great resource for those with a keen interest in
Strong Signals by Rich Wells
The complete scanner resource -
models, features, antennas - this site's a great resources for scanner
enthusiasts of all levels!
Ron Katz's Radio Frequency Directory
Great site for looking for scanner
frequencies in the Toronto area. It deals mostly with emergency services,
but the rail section includes all AAR frequencies and what ones local
Bill Miller's The View from Galt
One of the best railroad sites on
the net. It deals mainly with Southwestern Ontario (the farthest East it
ever gets is Georgetown) and tends to lean towards CP, but is still an
excellent site, and one of my all-time faves. Lots and lots of great
photos (the ones of "Chickenhead" hooping trains at Guelph Jct.
are masterpieces). Worth a visit!
Brian Bukowski's online CROR - the
'Bible' of Canada's railroad industry's rules and regulations. A must for
anyone who wants a closer look into how Canada's Railroads operate. It
also includes and EXCELLENT guide to signal aspects and indications.
Specific to CN's Great Lakes Region.
