To be honest, I hardly remember a time when I did not have an interest in trains.

The interest has ebbed and flowed over the years, but has evolved into a passion for photography, history, literature and preservation that has become a driving force in my life. 

Coming out of high school, the news that the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad stirred an interest in knowing that the railroad would soon be gone and drove me to document its last days. This turned into a passion for railroad photography that continues to this day. 

On the literature side, in 2017 the first book ever written on the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad was published. You can find a link to it under Books at the top of this page. The next project, started in 2018, is the Maine Line Magazine (also linked at the top) and that is a continuation of the Bangor and Aroostook's employee magazine, reborn as an online e-mag all about the railroads history. 

Preservation of railroad artifacts and equipment has become a family tradition.

My Father's skills in restoring and maintaining vintage railroad equipment have kept many of these artifacts out of the scrap bin.
You can read all about the restoration of my motorcar, Bangor and Aroostook #62 here. 

From railroad photography, to model railroads and full size preservation, I try to keep myself on track.
