Clay and Rocky are only the names of sidings not towns where anyone lives so I wouldn't expect them to appear as such on any maps. By the way Travis, were you tempted to hop the fence along the...

I hear you Mike...just wondering if anyone had the cajones to try it and if so to relate their story knowing they'll catch some flak for trespassing, being irresponsible and so on.

has anyone ever hopped a freight train?

Just wondering after reading about railfans who have photographed illegal riders if anyone in RP land has ever hopped a freight themselves? If so, do tell!
