As the subject should explain in enough detail for even the slowest of people to catch onto...me, siderod, is going to boston! My cousin (rich and buys me stuff...you know the one) who paied for Maple Leaf 2003 last year is paying for me to go to Boston for 5 days and do some railfanning and stuff. In the list of things to do is Visit a few hobby shops near boston (names still unknown) and ride the Amtrak Acela from Boston to New York. Basically, i wanna know stuff...anyone here live in or near Boston? Anyone know any good hobby shops in or around boston? Or within walking distance of the New York Station? Know any good railfanning spots or secrets? Anything i should avoid or see at all costs? Any information any of you can provide it would be great. IF i can and if i get time, it would be kick-ass to see any one of you that i can. Be nice to put a face to the name. Thanks guys. Andrew PS: If u post here that yur in or around boston or new york, you should expect an e-mail from me.
