Railroading is a wonderful life. 
  It can have it's good days and it's rough days. 
No matter what happens in the future, we always have great railroad memories to cherish.

 

   I am proud of my craft. I am proud of 99.5% of my coworkers. I am proud to be a railroader.
 I am damn proud of the fact that no matter how little support we get, we still get out there and get the job done.

This web site is dedicated to the many great members of my wonderful railroad family who I have had the honor and pleasure to work with for the last quarter century..
 It's because of you, and only you this place has survived so long.
You know who you are. You're the ones who go out every day in the stations, yards, along the main line and on the trains and give 100 plus percent  every single day of your railroad life because you're a damn proud railroader. The one word you're familiar with and not afraid of is WORK. The one word you never, ever hear is THANK YOU. But at the end of your railroad day, you can rest assured that you've done your best no matter what they've thrown at you and you've earned every last red cent they pay you.

You are and will always be the heart and soul of the railroad.

The great memories you have provided us with will last forever!

 


 
I would like to share some of our wonderful and sometimes trying experiences with you.

I thought brotherhood was DEAD on the railroad.
From the looks of your site, it is at least alive on the Northeast Corridor.
Out west, there aren't many brothers anymore, just people looking for a paycheck.
The photos are far better than anything a railfan magazine could ever do. 
I wish I had my camera out a lot more now....and maybe I will.
Thanks for the great site.
