Librarything Railroad (The LTR)

All Aboard!

This group is for the discussion of trains, railroads and railways, their equipment, function, books about railroad (and railways), railroads and railways from books, movies, and TV shows.

We won't limit ourselves to just real rails, we can talk about model rails and ficitonal rails as well.

All Aboard! Don't miss the wonderful observation car or our new on board chef in the dining car!
