Your conductor for this part of your web journey is Les Jarrett, owner of Railway Productions. Les has been a railfan (even though he didn't know it) since he was a baby.
Born in Independence, Kansas, he spent his early years living a block from the Santa Fe depot. Many summer evenings (and some mornings), his parents would take him over to the depot to see the Santa Fe's "Tulsan" or "Oil City Flyer" make their station stops. Although the route is now part of a shortline, and no longer a through route, Les can still hear the sound of the F Units chanting in his mind today.
include being invited up into the cab of a Great Northern F unit at Duluth
(Minnesota) Union Station, riding New York Central and Penn Central passenger
trains into New York City, and rides on Amtrak during its early days.
Of course a major happening was being bitten by the steam bug while riding
the Cumbres & Toltec in 1972.
In 1997, Les (and co-producer Greg Scholl) were awarded the "Award of Distinction" in the video industry "Videography Awards" for the "America By Rail" series. Les enjoys living his dream of combining his love of trains and travel with owning his own business. And he knows that he couldn't be doing this without the help of his many loyal customers who have purchased video programs over the years.
