I am in Glendale, CA.
Is there any list of the frequencies in my area including the Los Angeles area and nearby areas.
The RR database has hunderds of frequencies. I don't want to monitor them all. If anyone has a local .hpe file that would b great. Thanks, Bob.

The main one for the Glendale area would be the Metrolink Valley/Ventura Sub which goes through Glendale 160.455 (AAR 29); and possibly also the Metrolink River Sub 160.815 (AAR 47). These are primarily Metrolink and Amtrak traffic.
Try monitoring other LA area RR freqs for a while and see what you get. Note what you can hear and what you can't and develop your own list.
YMMV depending on your antenna, etc. Good Look.

Thanks John. I appreciate the info. I just did not want to scan all the many RR frequencies in the database. Bob.

029 will be most relevant. Here's some more stuff you may consider:
AAR 029: Metrolink Valley & Ventura Subs (includes Glendale)
AAR 047: Metrolink River Subdivision
AAR 087: Metrolink San Gabriel Subdivision (Metrolink San Bernardino Line)
AAR 096: UP Santa Barbara Sub (From Moorpark to San Luis Obispo)
AAR 036: BNSF San Bernardino Sub
AAR 030: Metrolink Orange and Olive Subdivisions

Have fun.

You might try searching the railroad band (160.215 to 161.565) from time to time. I've found some interesting stuff that way, including some railroad guys saying some really funny things on channels where the dispatcher and trainmaster don't hang out.

Even better, just program the basic railroad channels (91 of them if I recall correctly) into a bank and scan that bank from time to time.

In addition to these I would also recommend AAR 027, for the UP LA sub and AAR 042 for the UP Alhambra Sub.
