Andy Riga explores trainspotters

AMT train

Newly-appointed transportation reporter Andy Riga has a feature story in today’s paper about local trainspotters, complete with an audio slideshow from photographer John Kenney. The picture with the story is of Alex Tipaldos, aka KellerGraham, a transit photo nut and Friend of Fagstein.

Bastard copied my story idea His story complements a short one I did last year about bus fans who rent older transit buses and take pictures of them.

Both groups use the website (disclosure: run by a friend of mine) to organize their activities. The bus group, by the way, is organizing a pair of special bus charters for the first weekend of May.

    About the slideshow — great images but the sound was all wonky when I listened to it. Maybe it wasn’t recorded in the right frequency for the slideshow program?

    Andy, as a lifelong railfan myself, let me say that was a terrific story.

    And a tip of the hat for the box with the rail links on the web.
