This is  one of the oldest Western railfan sites on the web.  History?  Yeah.  Keeping it fresh?  Yeah.

Visit My Blog!  Brand new feature.  Here's where you get to decide if I'm smart and witty, or just egotistical...

Website Consolidation: All files and links formerly at users.sisna.com/jimbobnay have been moved under the Actionroad.net structure. You should notice no difference in functionality unless you had shortcuts pointing directly to the Sisna domain.

Narrow Gauge Updates:

There's two new trip reports under the Rail Encounters section--

  • Lots of images from the Tunnel District, as well as a spotting report for the San Luis & Rio Grande. This one's well worth your time and perusal.
  • Trip Report to the Grand Junction and Moab areas, Ruby Canyon, etc. This includes the Potash Local and an Amtrak Heritage unit.  New format, and some of my best photography ever.

I'm now on YouTube. My channel is kfgrijr.  You can watch videos of BNSF, Durango & Silverton, San Luis & Rio Grande, UP, and my model railroad as well.  Updated regularly.


I have written a book covering the entire history of the Rio Grande, published by Motorbooks Press.  To date this is the only cradle-to-grave account in print of the D&RGW.  Beautifully illustrated with 150 photographs, full of easy-to-follow historical information, it is a must-have for any student or fan of the Rio Grande. Also available as an e-book from Voyageur Press.
