Railfan & Railroad
AUGUST 2015: When you think of the Subway, do you picture the trains vaulting over summer houses skirting the Atlantic Ocean? Dennis Livesey takes us on a tour of New York City's trains and transit as you've never seen them before. Steve Barry recaps the NRHS convention in Vermont, and Greg Monroe takes us to BNSF's Colorado coal corridor. All this and more in the August edition of Railfan & Railroad!

The Empire State Building rises in the distance from its position in midtown Manhattan, a silent sentinel of the city.
