Hello, my name is Howard and I’m a train fan.
I live in Beaverton, OR; but grew up in Palmdale, California (Southern Pacific went right through town) and I’d go to La Posada in Winslow, Arizona to watch the Santa Fe railroad in action.
Every few months I go out and take train pictures. I’ve tried to post them to train picture sites, but never get them accepted. So, I figured, what the heck, I’ll make my own blog and post my own pictures!
Other blogs I maintain are
