I am going to get my Ham Licenses soon, Technician and General, and was wondering if there are any Railfan related ham groups?  I searched on the ARRL sight but did not come across anything.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome!  The better VHF ham handle-talkies (and mobile rigs) make good RR communications receivers too (just make sure that transmit is inhibited on those channels).

I was one since the early 70s, WB0ECM.  I forgot about renewing my license which expired in 2016.  I haven't been active.  I guess I would have to start from ground zero to get my General class back.

Don't know your geographic location but I'm certain you'll find folks in many areas with licenses.

29 years of being a ham operator. Our Sunday Night Scanner In Denver does cover listening to railroads. I'm one of the net controllers and I specialize in aircraft and railroad monitoring. We meet on the linked repeaters in Boulder (CO) 145.46 MHzand 145.16 MHz in Colorado Springs. We meet on the air Sunday nights at 8 pm local  time. I'm N0LBH...

Great, Go for it !  The knowledge you gain will help you and other railfans get more out of the adventure !
Think there were/are some identified frequencies on 2 meters for railfan talk-around, not sure how active they are.

Congrats on getting your HAM License!  I have been studing and reading into HAM Tech License for the 6 months and have a few friends that are HAMs as well.  Can't wait to get through the test and then get my license.
