In 1984 I started taking pictures of trains in the Netherlands. In more recent years I grew fond of the bulldog nose GM locomotives for which topic I still travel around the world.
On my pages I will show you some themes with a strong accent on the GM bulldog nose units.
What you also can find in the themes section are montly photo galleries of not quite recent taken pictures and the koalas site of my friend Henrike. Of course, both our hobbies (round noses) cross each other in Australia.

Below you find two pictures of me in action during setting up the Dutch private railway companies Lovers Rail (now part of Transdev), ShortLines (now part of CapTrain/Fret SNCF) and ERS Railways (now part of Genesee & Wyoming Inc.):

Lovers Rail test train at IJmuiden in July 1996

ShortLines test train at Rotterdam Europoort P&O/NSF terminal in July 1998

ERS Railways locomotive before start-up at Rotterdam Waalhaven Zuid on 18 September 2002
