Fourth installment of the “Railroad Semantics” series by Aaron Dactyl in which he continues in his line of documenting his experiences doing “train hopping”. For those who are not familiar with the term, the thing is to get on moving trains and tour the United States of America, meeting the most picturesque characters imaginable and living all kinds of adventures and misadventures while documenting all this through your camera. And his words, in addition to including articles related to the world of trains. In this issue Dactyl embarks on a journey that takes him through the states of Wyoming, Colorado and Utah. He identifies the groups of fellow travelers that are poseurs, drinks under overpasses, and suffers a major injury alone in the desert. There are plenty of photos of sweeping vistas, and railroad graffiti, and a selection of rail-related articles. This issue is thick as usual, and packed with information about tramp life.
