I always compared chasing trains to fishing. I go out with out a clue of whats going on if I go to a class 1 railroad in my area. Somedays I can spend 8 hours and see nothing, somedays I spend 30 minutes and see 3 trains. The way the signals are set up around here though help, if its yellow then there is a train fairly close by, if its red then its extremely close, the hard part is figuring out which way its going.

If I chase the local shortline its much easier, I can hear the horn from my house and with the 10mph speedlimit its not hard to catch up with.
