I am a retired Union Pacific Locomotive Engineer. I volunteer at the Galveston Railroad Museum running their engine on Saturdays. I belong to the Galveston Treasure Club, which is metal detecting club. I am an LDMA member and belong to the Round Rock GPAA Club. My wife Iris and I sold our gift shop on the Strand in Galveston about 1 1/2 years ago after having it for 15 years and are now totally retired. I was in the US Army from 1967 to 1969 and a VietNam Vet with the 82nd ABN.


  1. Thanks for serving . You’d of loved to know my pop , he loved steam. He was a machinist for BALDWIN LOCOMOTIVE WORKS back in the 40s until 1972 when they latched the doors . Fell victim to the very people he. Fought in WWII . Many at Baldwin were screwed out of their pensions by the steelworkers Union. He saw what hell was in the Pacific, like you guys in Vietnam .
