Re: Best program to sharpen photo clarity

Photoshop Elements is about $70, less on sale, and there's no monthly fee – it's a one-time purchase.

It will leave when it does, so if you're already trackside, you can't miss it.

Re: EJ&E Hotspot(s)

For just about as long as I have lived in Wisconsin, No. 660 has been the power on the West Bend local:

Re: EJ&E Hotspot(s)

I would not count on seeing EJ&E power on former EJ&E trackage as it has been scattered across the CN system. You're just as likely to see it in Battle Creek or Stevens Point as you are Matteson or Griffith.

Re: Where do I go from here?

1. Get a full-time job. If you don't have a significant full-time employment history, you will likely not ever get hired on a railroad.
2. Don't take your parents.

Re: Monroe railfanning

Not sure the need to micromanage a trip to Monroe – or anywhere. After a couple visits you'll learn what radio cues to listen for to find trains around town and pick up on traffic patterns.

Re: New books arrived

How is the photo reproduction? Is it glossy paper for color photos? That's often an issue with small-run publications.
