Railfan For Life is a journey across the American railroading landscape (with brief visits to Europe) through the lens of Hal Carstens. He was able to turn his lifetime passion for trains into a career, first joining Railroad Model Craftsman and later launching Railfan & Railroad, growing the company as a major Publisher hobby books and magazines.

In this Volume, you'll enjoy more than 100 pages of color photographs selected by our editors spanning Hal's trackside adventures from the last sixty years. From coast to coast, from steam to diesel (and trolleys, too), from main lines to short lines and everything in between!
