Locomotives are the power behind the rail industry, and capturing the perfect photo of a locomotive is no small feat. That’s why Trains magazine is offering this 40-page special download all about locomotives.

This free PDF includes an in-depth guide to rail-fanning in Los Angeles, where there’s no shortage of activity from the likes of Union Pacific, BNSF, Pacific Harbor Belt, Metro Rail, Metrolink and Amtrak. The section features a detailed train-watching map, and information on spotting trains in locations such as Fullerton and Sixth Street in Los Angeles.

Also included: A look at why Florida East Coast Railway’s new GE Transportation ES44C4s, which have replaced the railroad’s all-EMD fleet. Why did FEC change locomotive manufacturers? And what do they think the benefits of the ES44C4s are? We’ll cover that and more.

And finally, you’ll have access to a big-picture study on the power that drives North America’s largest railroads, with an in-depth review of the diversity and defining trends of modern motive power.
