Christopher Lee has always had an interest in trains, right from the day he took his first train ride on a Susquehanna fall foliage trip. He has since used his knowledge of modern locomotives and operations to work with Train Artisan, a company who produces 3D add-ons for Microsoft Train Simulator along with several other friends in the Train Simulator community. He currently serves as a Dispatcher and Yardmaster at the West Island Model Railroad Club. He models Conrail in the 1990's in HO and his favorite railroads are Conrail and the Reading and Northern. Outside the world of Railroading, he enjoys playing Golf as well as Photography. He is also an avid sports fan and enjoys watching Basketball, Football and Baseball.

Vincent J Lee grew up one block from the Jersey Central’s four track mainline in northern New Jersey during the 1950’s and early 1960’s. He was hooked into train modeling and railfanning by the sights and sounds of the numerous rush hour commuter trains pulled by CNJ’s big six-axle H16-44 Trainmasters, and road freights by their “baby faced” Baldwin DR4-4-1500's. Vincent began railroad photography with a Brownie 120 box camera, and over the years has used 35mm rangefinders, 120 twin lens reflexes, and mainly Nikon SLRs. His photographs have appeared in Railroad & Railfan, Railpace, Trains, Model Railroader, Railroad Model Craftsman, as well as The Diamond of the Erie Lackawanna Historical Society along with books. He models in HO the Erie Railroad as it was in Pennsylvania’s Wyoming Valley, and in New York City’s 28th Street Terminal. Once a month, he is the Mine Boss of the Elkins, WVA branch during operating sessions at the West Island Model Railroad Club.

Richard P. Allen was born July 5 1945, in Salines, CA. It was here at a young age that his father took him to the depot so he could be baptized by Thunder and Steam! He has lived in the Barstow and Yermo, CA area for nearly 40 years where Union Pacific and Santa Fe/BNSF trains constantly run through on their way west. The area is truly a railroad heaven. Richard didn't start railroad photography until the summer of 2000 when the Union Pacific Challenger 3985 came through and sent him back to the days of his childhood. Richard would like to thank all of those who have helped along the way when he has had questions, especially Mr. Don Bowen. Aside from railroad photography, he loves participating in Microsoft Train Simulator and thus learning about railroad operations in general. Richard will continue to seek out the quiet of the desert and plan, wait and listen for the sounds of Steel Wheels and Rolling Thunder. Richard takes photos for the western section.
