About Me

Welcome aboard my blog, Railroads and Mineshafts. My name is Brandon and I’m a ferroequinologist, a railfan, a train enthusiast, whatever you want to call it – I love trains. When I was little, my dad rode a train back and forth into the city to work. I would lay in bed at night and listen for the whistle so I knew when the train was going by to signal his arrival home, and a hobby was born. I started this blog for other railfans and for those who want to learn more about trains, all their uses, and the history behind these “iron horses.”
