The Gregarious Railfan
Bibliography
Below I have made a list of printed references helpful to the railfan. These are just books in my library, and this is
by no means a complete list of all material available.  In my opinion, knowledge of the history and geography of
railroads can only add to the enjoyment of railfanning.  Copyright dates shown below are for the first edition.  Many
of the books have newer editions. Obviously, the newer editions should be sought out.
