FROM THE BOOK
Go Ahead - Easy                                                                                                                                     
This is an album                                                                                                                                           -
an account of personal experiences                                                                                                                
and impressions                                                                                                                            
gained through my encounters                                                                                                                                           with The Iron Horse                                                                                                                                 -as a kid along a Kansas branchline                                                                                                        -as a half baked hobo                                                                                                                         and eventually as an engineman.                                                                                                    
The presentations is as homespun                                                                                                     and unsophisticated                                                                                                                                        as were the circumstances from which                                                                                             the material was taken and as was the taker.                                                                                       It is my hope                                                                                                                                                    that by presenting these images                                                                                                                   I will better the preservation                                                                                                               of the aura of The Iron Horse                                                                                                               for you as well as for myself.                                                                                                                Go ahead - easy                                                                                                                                                                                    and enjoy.
