Welcome to Whistle Stop — a community site for everyone who loves train travel as much as we do. Think of it as your virtual Café Car, where you can pull up a chair and swap stories with fellow travelers.

Dive into first person travelogues to see what it's like to ride the rails: the fantastic variety of sights you can see from a train and the many interesting people who share the journey with you. Pictures are included, so you can see the wonderful American landscape you have time to enjoy along the way. You'll also find a collection of shorter articles detailing train-related facts & tidbits.

Just as the people who ride trains are a big part of the rail experience, so too are you and your experiences an important part of the Whistle Stop community. If you have a fond memory of a favorite train adventure, we'd love to hear from you so we can post your story to share with other readers.

Yes, there still is adventure, mystery and romance out there, so climb aboard and see what you can discover.
