I have just acquired an edge with my railfanning! After a search for months and the realization that I would have to spend hundreds, a streak of luck has come! On my mom’s tablet I was able to find a radio scanner for FREE! As I type, I am listening to the UP and BNSF lines in the area. With this new edge, combined with a warm spell in this area, I am taking to the field today and railfanning at a nearby Amtrak station. I will post results later.
