Hello all, I’m Robert. I’ve always been into trains. I used to be a laborer for BNSF. Lately I’ve been getting my into local history with the Pacific Electric railroad in SoCal. Looking forward to being a fellow member to you all.

While I cannot commit to today's locomotives, business actions by the (few) Class I managers and suffering from a broken heart every time I see a bare roadbed or a "Rails to Trails" travesties, I still enjoy learning all that I can as well as sharing my acquired knowledge of the past 52 years. Has it really been that long?!? 🤨
