Hello, and welcome to my User Page! My interests for Wikipedia are primarily in the areas of rail transportation and railroad history (see list below), but I also have an avid interest in computer science and mathematics.

My interests:

  • U.S. Railroad History
    • Mostly eastern coal-hauling lines (C&O, N&W, VGN) and logging.
    • Early Virginia railroads
    • Some Western Montana Railroads
  • Virginia unincorporated communities
  • Black powder and "Old West" firearms, especially Colt firearms
