Hi Everyone, nice place you have here. i have always been a rail fan at heart, but only recently started being active in this hobby. the wife and i went to few museums. then we bought a good camara(couple days ago no less), etc. we enjoy the deserts around here and they seem to be riddled with trains, so...
Anyway, i'm glad to find a place to share fun, photos, stories,etc.
