The picture above shows an early encounter with a Norwegian Di3. This
was in the summer of 1983 during one of our family trips to Norway. In 1983
I got a camera and started taking pictures myself.
Somewhere in the mid-seventies I received a modeltrain set. During a move
to another house in 1982 I found this train set again and my interest in
trains started to grow again. Over the years I built a layout in two bedrooms
in the attic of our house. Numerous tienertoer (cheap train fare) trips gave
me enough inspiration and pictures.
In the summer of 1993 I made a train trip to Scandinavia and that was the start
of switching my modelling interest from Dutch railways to Norwegian railways.
For the next couple of years I made these train trips to Norway.
In the summer of 1998 we moved to the USA and I started an interest in
taken pictures of other subjects as well.
