How to Make the "Railroad" Pool Trick Shot

Learn how to make the "Railroad" shot from pool trick shot champion Andy Segal in this Howcast video.


"Hi, I'm Andy 'The Magic Man' Segal. I'm here at Willow Billiards in Hoboken, New Jersey doing some trick shots and pool instruction. So if you're ready, let's get started.

Alright, we have a couple of cue sticks on the table, this is called the 'railroad shot'. These cue sticks make what is known as the train station and the track. What I'm going to do, I'm going to shoot the cue ball into the one, the eleven ball on the side, one ball in the corner. the cue ball's going to go one, two, three cushion into the station, switch tracks, come down the track and pocket the nine in the side. The set-up is pretty straightforward. You have the one and the eleven straight across the table, the nine ball hanging and then you have three cue sticks as you can see. Two long cue sticks pointed directly at the nine and one cue stick offset a little. Kind of like that. "
