About Jonathan Higgins

For over 25 years Jonathan has been a fan of trains… Since he was a little boy Jonathan’s been enthusiastic about everything that rides on rails from trolleys to trains. His eyes would light up every time he heard a train horn from a distance. He spent countless hours watching Conrail freight trains in the Middleboro, MA rail yard. He would often visit Edaville Railroad in South Caver, MA or the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, ME.

Now that Jonathan is settled into his adult life he is getting back into the passion of everything that rides on rails. Whenever trains or trolleys are involved you will find Jonathan with a scanner in one hand and a camera in the other. When he is not out and about chasing trains he is working on his 5′ x 8′ N-Scale layout and listening to his scanners. You can listen in to his “Southeastern New England Railroads” online scanner feed.

Jonathan has a background in Radio/Television broadcasting. He wanted to incorporate some of his skills from the trade into the Train Aficionado website from videos to podcasts. Make sure you join our online communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and YouTube Channel!
