How my railroad interests moved from the Pacific Northwest to Southern New South Wales .....with a stop over in Southern California

Monday, November 9, 2009

My profile photo is pretty small, so here's a larger version....taken by well known Australian railway photographer Graham Cotterall of me behind the controls of Southern Shorthaul Railway locomotive GM-22 on the coal branch north of Wallerawang NSW. My 20 years of running locomotives came right back to me.....but the controls were on the wrong side!!


  1. Hi Lance,
    welcome to the world of blogging. You have been quite since your visit down under. We might be able to see how your Aussie modelling unfurls.
    Great header photo as well.

    Have fun with the blog, it adds a new dimension to your world.

    You look good in the behind the controls even if they are on the 'right' side ;-)
