Thanx for the wonderful comments Janice, Patricia, Lori, Mary, Terry, and Michael. I appreciate your insights and support. That's what makes being a part of the wonderful BePho family so fantastic. Three months ago I wouldn't have tried anything like this, but after the great courses by "the Jims" (Miotke, Zuckerman)" this isn't as undaunting as it used to seem. Thanx Guys, and thank everyone for the great support that is truly appreciated - Allan

  Hi Allan. I was just admiring your gallery and had to comment on your planes and trains (although everything is awesome). My stepson has loved planes and trains since he could talk (now 15 yrs old). And you have done the little boys of America proud with your very talented assortment of photos. You should publish a book. Every boy in America would want one!!!
