Rail-Fanning with a Scanner
One of the most popular tools in a Railfans arsenal is a scanner. Not the device used to copy your pictures to a computer, but a radio receiver. Scanners have become an important part of the railfanning experience and to many are as indispensable as a camera. Scanners allow one to monitor multiple channels and when activity is present it will allow you to hear the radio traffic.

Scanners you can use

One of the most asked questions is what scanner should I use to listen to the railroads? The answer to this is usually any scanner you want to use! Most railroads use a set of 97 frequencies between 160 and 162 MHz. Most operations are in "Conventional/Analog" mode, that means they do not usually use trunking, digital or other complicated modes.
