Fawcett5 is a Wikipedian with a particular interest in the history of Canada and transportation (particularly trains and aeroplanes). Since 6 June, 2005 I have been a wikipedia administrator. I'm a bit burned out on wikipedia, and my current level of involvement is much less than at times in the past.
