My first car in 1977 was a mini, officially its colour was 'Bedouin' but we can just call it sand :)  Had a lot of fun in it

Looks like they added a reinforcements inside each one to keep it in shape!... Interesting shot!

The VIA Rail Canadian leaving Winnipeg this past Saturday. Not a great day for photography but I did the best I could.

Nice B&W!  Sorry you are feeling your interaction is dropping here.  This is basically the only one I use.  Have never been on FB.  I have a presence on Flickr, Ello and Tsu but not active at all.

An experiment with Lightroom CC 2015's new HDR feature. It's quite easy to use.

An SD40-2 in the Kamloops yard. These once common locomotives are starting to get scarce... especially the ones with the "Pac-man" multimark design.

Story
Tagline
I like telling stories.
Introduction
Steve Boyko is a train geek and a photographer. But more importantly he's a father and husband. He used to be an army brat and traveled frequently when he was a child.

At times in his life he has been a computer geek, a gamer geek, a ship geek, a plane geek, a medievalist geek... and probably others.

He owns and maintains the web site traingeek.ca and frequently updates his main blog Confessions of a Train Geek.
Bragging rights
I have three great kids and one great wife. Everything else is gravy.
