New to both the train community and Terre Haute
« on: November 15, 2016, 03:09:51 PM »
Hey guys, I just moved to Terre Haute which has an insane amount of traffic compared to my previous home in SEI. A few weeks ago I started doing some research on the rail industry and the hobby of train watching. I came here to ask for help on how to get started. Can't wait to see what new things I learn on this board. Thanks!

Check out the Wabash Valley RR museum(old Haley Tower). Go on a Saturday and I'm sure there will be others around to help you out.  I think its on 8th Ave.
Welcome aboard!
