Selected Images from Rail-Fan Excursions
Once I started to model railroads and railroading communities, I wanted to see first hand the prototypes I was modeling. This interest has taken me to several venues throughout the world. Many of these prototypes were visited in conjunction with one of the garden railroader events that I attended and are covered in that section.
In this section are excursions involving full-sized railroads that were not part of my garden railroading experience. In some cases, the primary mode of transportation was the train itself, in other cases, the primary mode of transportation was a bus, which took us from railroad to railroad.
