Most of the mobile machines can avoid me if I am not paying attention, except the train. When I see it, I have to get out of his way!... Vwaaam, Vwaaam!

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.
