The Railfan Talkshow: "Your Home for all Things Railfanning" We are an internet talkshow devoted to the hobby of railfanning across the United States. Railfanning is considered one of America's past times, however it is still very present in the lives of many Americans and we're here to serve that community. Our show originated as the "Illinois Railfan Talkshow" in January of 2011. The show was founded by railfan Greg Dybas and was then taken over by it's current staff in April of 2011. Our show has a record of always doing the right thing. Our show is always original, our topics are never copied from someone else. Our show's staff researches every topic carefully and we strive to present it originally and with entertainment in mind. Though we've been copied in the past, you will not find another talkshow on the web with the variety and accuracy that The Railfan Talkshow offers. Our mission is to always do the right thing, to always bring you the topics you want to hear and to do so professionally and accurately. That's are promise to you, and you can take us to the bank on that. On behalf of all of us here at The Railfan Talkshow, welcome aboard.
