First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is
John Peterson. According to my parents, I have been a railfan
since I was barely able to talk! I enjoy railfanning and love
to scout out trains any time we are in a new area
(although not always to the enjoyment of my wife! DOH!).
I have been following trains in northern Alabama since the
days when it was still L&N through the area. My father
(who spent some time on the Atlantic Coastline) exposed me
to railroading at a young age and I've been hooked ever since.
As I have gotten older, I've also developed an interest in
computers, and hope to develop an
interface to connect my computer to my model railroad. These web pages
are an exciting way for me to combine my interest in computers
and railfanning. I also enjoy model railroading and am currently working on
developing a freelance bridge/switching road based in Mobile,
For my fellow "web heads" who are interested, these pages were
created using Homesite 4.5.2 and MS Notepad.exe. The graphics
on these pages were done by your's truly using Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and Paint Shop Pro 7.0.
Almost all of the photographs since 1996 were taken
with a stock Pentax K-1000. The rest of the
photos were taken with a number of different cameras, including a Minolta SR-1,
a simple Kodak 110 camera, a 126 camera and a few were even taken with Kodak's
infamous Disk Camera.
My hobbies include railfanning, model railroading, computers,
playing guitar, car stereo, photography.
