Railspot is a regional railfan list server whose purpose is to allow those railfans in the states of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and New Mexico (TALON) to swap information that may be of use to those who are interested in the operation of area railroads. This is the historic Railspot group located since 2000 on YahooGroups. With the announced changes to YahooGroups in late 2019, Railspot has migrated to groups.io in an effort to preserve the historical post data collected at YG over all these years. The Railspot email address was already registered at groups.io by someone else. Railspot (RS-TALON) is the replacement email address under groups.io.
Posts to the Railspot (RS-TALON) list should focus on railroad operating information, train sightings, history, photo/watching locations, trip reports, accessibility of sites, security/safety, where permission
can be obtained from railroads, rail stories, area conventions, book reviews, video reviews , railroad related web sites and similar factual information. Tactful (rail related) humor in any post is always welcome. Please enjoy and participate in the high quality information we try to
share regarding railroads operating "in our own backyards".
