Hi. I just started this form a couple weeks ago and I like it. I like to photograph trains, play piano, collect railroadiana, and listen to my scanner. The closest lines that run by me are the CP Nitrin Subdivision(illinois side of the river), and the Davenport Subdivision( iowa side of the river). I know Tom Farence and he has been really nice to me. Showing me how to take pictures and giving me a TON of railroad collectibles. anyway, I was wondering if there were any other rail photographers that lived near or in the Port Byron area. Any age, but i would like to have a train friend that was around the age of 11 or 12.

Thanks, Rafter
