Welcome to RTP Railfan!

This site is for the Carolina area railfan. It will focus primarily on the Research Triangle Park area, Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina. In addition, there will be articles from outside the area once in a while. This site is primarily to point out interesting railfan areas through the use of railfan photography and maps. In addition, there are sections covering technology associated with railfaning including scanners and antennas. Enjoy the site!

Check out the RTP Railfan Radio (back up and has better range). You will need WinAmp to listen. Also, check out my blog. I seem to have more time to update it. I'm also setting up a new page for audio clips I've captured from my scanner setup.

New for 2013! RTP Railfan will now include new railfan information about the Greensboro/Winston-Salem area. The scanner feed has been updated with the local frequencies and the links are now operational.
