Introduction[edit]

Hi, I'm gws57. I have been a Wikipedia editor since January 20, 2005. I seem to spend most of my time on Wikipedia editing articles having to do with the history of the Chicago Great Western Railway. I'm proud that my creation, Winston Tunnel, was listed as a Good article, and that the article on Chicago's Grand Central Station that I've done extensive work on was also listed. I have also made significant edits to articles about Metra, and Illinois railroad history in general. It should be noted that none of this has anything to do with my professional historical interests; this is all strictly a hobby for me. I make more-than-periodic edits to articles about Illinois geography, towns, and roads. Look at my userboxes to learn more about me.
