Rail fans, look no further–we've got you covered with this package made by rail fans for rail fans. The rail package can include everything a rail enthusiast could want, including programming for ALL rail communication. Choose any of the analog scanners as well as other add-ons that will allow you to scan for days & be set for years of enjoyment. While you can monitor rail communication with any scanner we sell, this package offers all handheld analog scanners, as all rail communication in the U.S. uses analog.  You could buy a more expensive digital scanner and it will also work, but any scanner can pick up all rail communication.

FAQ

 

Can I charge the batteries from the scanner when it is on?

Yes, HOWEVER, this takes a very long time and the batteries will not fully charge. We recommend an external battery charger and 2 sets of rechargeable AA batteries; all of which can be added on this page. This way you can always have a fresh set up batteries. The batteries we sell last about 8 hours on single charge; Energizer/Duracell last about 5 hours.

 

Programming

Rail Scanner Programming Overview

Programming is the #1 concern of potential police scanner buyers. Each scanners' programming is unique & we added how-to's on each scanner product page showing how to program that particular scanner. We recommend following the decision tree graphic below & watching programming videos to determine whether you should have your scanner professionally programmed. 75% of all scanner sales include programming.

Bought for my Dad's birthday and he loves is!!! He has been listening to trains since as long as I can remember and had a pretty old scanner radio to listen and he was super happy with this. One of those gifts that actually 'hit' with a very hard to buy for person. THANKS!!! (Posted on 9/10/2015)
