Welcome back.

It has been a few months since I have made a journal entry. This time I bring no excuses to the table. I am not taking any classes or working over at the job, just plain old laziness.

I have not been out like I would like to do weekend events here and there. The lack of updates on the website explains things.

I did attend Trainfest 2004 in Dennison, Ohio. What a ball I had. There will be another Trainfest in 2006 and I will be there. Check out the photos at :

It is about that time of year and I am seriously thinking about heading out to do some fall shots. Never been to Sandpatch to catch the majic. Maybe I will head that way.....

Finally, I have returned to my blog with some new things to share.  I have updated my website with new photos.   I have some pictures from Canada -,  CP Rail steam engine 2816 - http://www.trainweb.org/clevelandtrains/cp2816/cp2816.htm and some from the Ohio Central -
This weekend, I will be attending Trainfest 2004 at Dennison, Ohio.  I am very excited to have the pleasure to see steam locomotives working under their own power!  I will have plenty of pics to share after this weekend.
Thats all for now.

It has been some time since I have updated my webpage and blog. There are just so many things to do in a given day. I am currently working on my MBA and working full time. So something’s had to take a back seat for a little while. But don’t worry. I am going to come back, this time with some better, clearer ideals. I have some things that are right now in the planning stages, like overhauling my website and trying to get into the rail business. The price of dsl has made it so cheap now, where I can get a line that has 3 megabits and down for as little as 60 bucks a month. Not bad. I would like to put together a nice site to display all of my photos. Currently, I have over 3000. And that number is about to grow more once I pick up one of them new digital Rebels.

As far as getting into getting the rail business, I am exploring this op. It is one thing to take pictures of them all day. So why not get into the game and make money off it? I am looking deep into this field now. I will let you know what I find soon. If you have any ideals or suggestions about getting into the field, email me at natef40amtrak@yahoo.com

EMD, return to the top?

Check out this months issue of Trains magizine (February 2004). The new SD70MACe is here. Will this be the locomotive that puts EMD back on top? Will this one design change the locomoitve industry? I am not sure of all the hype. Alot of roads seem to love GE locomotives right now. BNSF and NS seem to like the GE products they are recieving. CSX and UP have given EMD some life that will keep them around longer for a little longer. Only time will tell if this one locomotive will change the way locomotives are designed.
