Book Title: Railroad Semantics #1
Author: Aaron Dactyl
Format: Paperback | 64 pages
Publication Date: 01 May 2012
Devoted to trainhopping and railroad culture, Aaron Dactyl's Railroad Semantics zine describes the sights, sounds, successes, and defeats of riding around the US inside of (and sometimes on top of) freight trains. This first issue, re-published here in book form, explores a round-trip, early-spring train ride from Portland to Pocatello and back, as well as a long, winter ride to Eugene. Informative and entertaining, this issue features a wide array of articles on railroads and rail-related activities, letters, postcards, and absolutely gorgeous photographs of landscapes and hobo graffiti--a poetic sense of adventure captured in words, pictures, and scenic vistas!
