Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days


Devoted to train-hopping, graffiti, and railroad culture, Aaron Dactyl's Railroad Semantics series describes the sights, sounds, successes, and defeats of exploring the western U.S. by freight train. The first four Railroad Semantics books are collected here for the first time. In their pages, you'll see epic, hidden works of art, read up on rail lore and riding tips, meet rail workers and fellow adventurers, and experience the perils and glories of life in rail yards, train cars, small towns, and encampments.

The adventures in these books take you through California, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and Oregon.
