I am a locomotive engineer for a small railroad in Minnesota. Our tracks go through many small towns and I often have to stop to set out, or pick up cars. I also stop for lunch or for garage sales in these towns. I've gotten to know many people up and down the railroad. When I'm not at work, I enjoy being with the folks in the small town where I live (7th Street is the edge of town). I'm just a regular guy. Single. I am an American history enthusiast, and have written two books on the subject. I have to learn everything the hard way - and usually twice. I was raised in Phoenix, AZ, and moved to MN 20 years ago. I like it here, and I'm going to stay.
