  1. Merry Christmas from Eudora, KS. A Santa Fe guy from day one, but I've always had an interest in the Frisco. I started railroading in 2-1969 as a Carman at Topeka, but eventually went to engine service as a Fireman, then Engineer, working west out of Emporia, KS. They closed Emporia as a crew change, and moved us to KC in 1988, and I retired in 2011 working to Wellington, KS and back, with 42 years. I had many memorable trips on the railroad, but a career highlight was being asked to pilot Frisco 1522 from Topeka to Emporia and back, and having the privilege to work with Don Wirth on part of the trip. I call myself an advanced Railroadiana collector, collecting non-paper items since the early 70's. I'm trying to quit, but just when I think I'm all done with that, something else comes up for sale that I really want ! Anyway, I think I'm gonna like it here.

    Dennis, Welcome Aboard. Good you have you join.

    I reasonably sure you may know a number of my local friends; Warren Scholl, Stephen Priest, Steve Hottle, Eric Goodman, Keith Jordan, Mark Hall. Most are model railroaders as well.

    Maybe our paths will cross...
