    Does anybody know the frequencies for NS in the Atlanta, GA area? I live in Stockbridge and one of their Atlanta/Macon lines runs about 2 miles from me and I want to listen in.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi Micheal, You can find specific freqs at the site above. N. American railroads have 97 specific channels assigned to them. Some of them use all 97 and some just a few. They're all in the the upper portion of the VHF band so most any scanner will pick them up.
