About Steve Young

My interest in trains started in 1972, in London, while on a Miles for Millions Walk (Remember those?). We would bike out to Hyde Park or take the bus downtown to watch trains. I then moved to Waterloo, and in a few years acquired my first SLR. This is when my rail photography started. I visited Toronto a few times because that was where the train were. I had to go where public transit would get me. My eyesight precluded me from obtaining a Drivers License (until I was 49, while living in the "States). My folks moved to Halifax in 1980 while I stayed in Waterloo to attend school. Generally, I was too busy to much railfanning, but I did have a couple work terms in Calgary. Upon graduation in 1984, I got married and moved to Calgary for a few years. Once the oil patch tanked, my career died and we moved to Edmonton, where I went back to school and my wife's career took off. I got to be Mr Mom for about 20 years. We left Canada in Jan 1998 on what was supposed to be a temporary assignment. As my kids grew up, I had more free time and continued my rail photography. I may not be a very creative photographer, but I think I have learned enough to keep most of my shots.
