Welcome to my blog. I’ve always been interested in trains, but it wasn’t until 1999 that I got St. Joseph and Grand Island Caboose 48. I had worked on restoration projects for city governments and private individuals, but this car was the first car I owned. Over the years, as I got involved in more projects professionally, I ended up with the cars I have now. It’s a little difficult to keep railroad cars on your property along the Front Range of Colorado, which is one of the reasons I moved with my family to VERY rural Northeast Kansas. People ask all the time what I use the railroad cars for (a museum? a restaurant? what?) but they are just my hobby. Now I combat the elements to keep the railroad cars in good shape. I started this blog to share the progress I’m making, and to share some articles and stories I find interesting.
Along with the railroad cars, I also started the restoration of a 1923 Model T.
