The Ultimate Railfan Tool That's what RailSightings is all about.

  • One-stop place to find out about almost anything train related.
  • Social features such as discussion forums, likes, leaderboard, etc.
  • Completely replaces time-tested yet dated log books.

RailSightings is a web-based application for railfans to log their sightings, perform research, track trains & locomotives, and simply have fun connecting, sharing, and contributing.

Take sighting submission for example. We put our thinking caps on to make sighting submission as painless (maybe even a bit fun) as possible. This is because the system "learns" with each new sighting added, and becomes more predictive.

Although RailSightings currently has some awesome features, we have got many, many more on the to-do list for the near and long-term.

Your support is highly valued as RailSightings would be nothing without it! Got a suggestion? We want to hear it.
