Trainorders LA Times Story - now available
Author: webmaster

Well, our long awaited Los Angeles Times story will appear this Sunday in the Los Angeles Times Magazine. Before you guys jump on some of the issues in it realize that she condensed who two day adventure into one. It is really a funny story of railfans as viewed by non-fans. Although she doesn't mention all the names, you can tell who she is talking about if you have hung around Trainorders a while and saw who was on the last trip.

Great coverage, Todd. I certainly hope that helps motivate people and sell some tickets. You've been very fortunate to receive that level of coverage.

...."a hip, young Berkeley grad who took a job he didn't like when he discovered that his place of work was only 50 feet from the Southern Pacific Railroad track (he watches trains all day)"

Gee, I wonder who they're referring to here...and he's considered hip??? ;-)

great story, hope it brings more interest to your site and to the hobby.

I have moved to new places just to be closer to the tracks......even it is Conrail locomotives that go past now , any non CN train is better then no trains

hell yeah man, I am one hip cat!Chasing baretables through the desert is so jive man. LOL, must come off as hip as in not the stereotypical foamer within the railfan crowd. Lauren did pick my brain for 30 or so minutes and this article picks up on exactly the type of observer and romantic railroad passenger she is. Good story but perhaps some of you guys had to be there to really appreciate it. Most of us up front in the Pony did figure out that air hose problem before the Am-conductors did!

And for the record, I worked a mere 15 feet form the tracks (a little more impressive) and I do enjoy my line of work and employer (seeing I am still with them today 2 years after we moved away from the tracks there at CP Maggie).

Great story. Motivated me to sign up for this board.

For anyone who bought the paper/magazine...the lead photo...is that in the San Fernando Valley?
