Lovely, John


I have loved trains since WWII days, watching the SP in the San Timoteo canyon. Yes I vaguely remember steam, mostly in helper service. I spent most of my adult life in passenger transportation - busses and now as a Conductor with Grand Canyon Railway. I model HO, HOn3 and 1:8 scale, 7.5" gauge.
