I'm looking for all the freight hopping info I can get my hands on.
There is a Train Hopping Forum on this site. I also Highly recommend to read Matt Derrick's book: The Anarchist's Guide to Travel. And The Hobo Handbook A Field Guide to Living by Your Own Rules by Josh Mack he mentions STP in his book. Available on Amazon. GOOD LUCK!

If you're looking to learn about traveling and especially riding because it's kind of a closed mouth group it's helpful if you tell us a little bit about yourself and your experience and what you do know and what you'd like to know let people get to know you and then ask for some help people on this site are generally pretty informed and helpful

richmond virginia, the east coasts portland.
the amount of information on trains on this website, or even through a simple google search these days is enormous. the library section alone has over 100 threads with just about any thing youd wanna know. but im sure you knew that because you must of read the sticky threads before making yer post in the train hopping section.

you might want to actually introduce yerself before jumping straight into asking people for information like that. like @dontpanic said you get back what you put into this website and personally im not interested in giving out more info to a complete stranger then whats already easily available here or elsewhere..

welcome to stp.

Ya man, there is an updated US train atlas on here if you search for it. As well as all of the info (minus railfan sites and personal experience) that I needed to get out there for my first few times on my own.

May I also suggest Duffy Littlejohns book, Hopping Freight Trains In America?

Just get through the searching, and you will find all ya need. Good luck out there.

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$80.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $80.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $80.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
