Although interested in trains from a very early age, it was not until 1982 that I started researching and photographing them in a really major way. The hobby has gradually taken my across many parts of Australia and more recently overseas. The fun had and times shared with good friends will live with me forever, many of these have proven to be lifelong friendships. ALCOS INTERNATIONAL the demise of the older Alco classes back in 1994, lead me on a mission to research the DL500A,B and C worldwide. Gradually this search went on to cover Alco’s of all types. To assist in this, I set up a small group called Alcos International and have put together a small newsletter called "Alco Addict" for around two years now. The response from around the world has been phenomenal, and I thank all those who put in their time and effort to help me with my research and newsletter. The success of Alco Addict has been so good that I recently accepted an offer to place it in an American magazine. The magazine, The Railroad Press" is amoungst the finest I have seen and it is quite an honour to have been asked. PHILIPPINE UNOFFICIAL RAILWAY SITE A visit to this fascinating country early in 1999 made me realise exactly how interesting some overseas railways can be. On returning home to Australia, a search of the Internet revealed little on the Philippine Railways. I have sought to remedy this a little. Further trips are planned shortly and more shots will be placed on the site. AUSTRALIAN MOTIVE POWER REVIEW This site started early in 1998, but died out after only three issues. I jumped at the chance to help my friend Bob resurrect it, and now I am happy to see it better than ever before. The site is gradually turning into a huge source for all the very latest "Motive Power" information from around Australia. Regularly updated fleetlists are keeping people informed as never before.
