News Article on Our Very Own Fan Railer

Camaraderie and community for NYC 'rail fans' passionately chasing train oddities

Mike Kam was waiting patiently on the Grand Central Station platform Saturday for a unique sight: A vintage Lo-V model train from 1917.

But he wasn’t interested in taking a “nostalgia ride,” courtesy of an MTA and New York Transit Museum tradition of offering straphangers a trip on a vintage train throughout the year.

Kam wanted to “chase the train” — taking video of it pulling into Grand Central, then racing to its destination at the Woodlawn stop in the Bronx to record its entrance into the station.

Kam, 22, is a rail fan — a hardcore transit enthusiast who belongs to an active community of train, bus and railroad lovers.
