It seems to me that young people who go out railfanning at their favorite railroads, particularly the so called "foamers" have been overlooking a very valuable reference tool to aid them in their quest of their favorite trains, the timetable, either employee or public. Outdated employee timetables can be particularly useful in selecting a spot to set up for a photoshoot of a train or series of trains and it is a great historical reference. For those in former Conrail territory, the final timetables issued by Conrail can still be useful in scouting a photoshoot location. In addition to a railfan reference tool, obtaining a timetable or two could get the young railfan started in a most enjoyable hobby that is relaxing and often rewarding. Not only of obsolete employee timetables ,but old passenger timetables issued by railroads that had passenger service and many of which no longer exist. Here is a form of history come to life in a graphic way, the railroad timetable. There is an organization that I highly recommend, the National Association of Timetable Collectors. Annual dues are 30.00 regular membership and the address to which a check payable to NAOTC should be sent is PO Box 446, Georgetown, TX 78627-0446. Anyone, young or old, interested in railroad timetables, or other kinds of transport timetables is welcome. In addition to both kinds of railroad timetables, I also collect freight schedule publications as well. I hope more young people get into this fine hobby. It's a great way to learn about railroad operations.
