The range you would be able to pick up from the railroad band using the BC75XLT would be 159.50 - 161.5575.

If you scan that range you should pick up all the railroad users you can pick up in your area.

Hello Raymond.
The problem with doing custom search ranges is that you won't "exactly" know what you are listening to.

Just out of curiosity, have you plugged in the O'Hare Airport tower and approach/departure frequencies? Those are usually fun to listen to and they are flying right over you.

Another fun frequency to listen to is Chicago Police Citywide 1 (460.125). You can listen to announcements about the "hot calls".

As long as you are having fun that's all that matters. You won't hear much on federal. Most federal frequencies are digital and encrypted.

I'm not a rail-guy Raymond so I would not be a good person to recommend what you can program into banks related to rail. However I might suggest you put your favorite rail frequencies into Bank 1. Maybe in Bank 2 you put in various airport frequencies. Bank 3 can maybe be some nearby fire departments frequencies as there is many still on analog VHF (Northlake, Leyden, Niles, Wheeling, etc). Bank 4 could be business frequencies you have found. Don't know if this helps you but try to group the type of user into a bank so that it is easy for you to bring up and listen to them.
