Two long-time pursuits of mine — writing and trains — have finally come together. I’ve had my first byline appear in Trains, the longtime magazine for ferrophiles, as my sister once called them (train lovers, for those who don’t speak Latin). My first article appeared on Future stories and photos will appear either on the site or in the magazine, or both. I’m planning to write more for them as a correspondent in Upstate New York/New England, and looking forward to it.

This first piece was about federal spending (or lack thereof) on railroad infrastructure, and the prospects for it going forward. You may get blocked by the paywall, but here’s the link to the piece.

I took the photo above in Canaan, NY, in 1995.
