Hello everyone!

For my sins I currently live in Johannesburg!

I enjoy trains - i have an interest in American loco's, make paper models (from time to time), and enjoy train photography - of any railway related subject, from electrics to steam, from railway people to "objects".

Ambitions are one day to visit the USA and India to take photos...... Probably pipe dreams though! But one can but dream!
