about

TheRailroad Semantics zine is Aaron Dactyl's big round-up of all-things train culture. From trainhopping to hobo graffiti, maps to camps, Aaron gives the goods in a well-written style that's both informative and poetic. In issue two, Aaron describes his summer riding freight trains between Portland and Northern California. Between the exhausting waits in sparse canyons and breezy sunny rides into Eugene, Aaron manages to make riding trains sound like a grand adventure. This volume also includes interesting localarticles about the railroads: shipping trash to landfills by train, Junction City's lawsuit against the rail company, and a landslide.
Aaron Dactyl is an adventurer, railroad hobo, and train enthusiast. He regularly travels by hopping trains and is the author of Railroad Semantics #1. He lives in Eugene, Oregon.

Editorial Reviews

"Credit must be given to Dactyl for bringing it alive with a writing style that mixes enough railroad lingo with some pretty vivid passages of the scenery, the people and the towns he encounters along the way." —www.ReglarWiglar.blogspot.com
