Default Some questions for a newbie

Hey, I have a few newbie questions and would love to get some answers or at least pointed towards the right direction to find the answers...

Firstly, I was wondering... where can I find information on different types of locomotives, I see in these pictures that you generally have the locomotive types listed...but I have no clue how to recognize any difference!

Also, I was wondering if there was a way to find out the destination or loads of trains. I have just always wondered where these guys are going when I see them rolling along, or at least what they may be holding.

Anyways, thanks for any help I can get!

To learnabout locomotives search the internet for the following title:

"diesel spotter's guide"

Learning the destination of trains or a particular load is more complicated. Get a subscription to Trains or RailFan magazine and start reading.
