Hello there! People call me the Train Wizard for two reasons. One, I know quite a lot about trains, and two, I am an avid Harry Potter fan. Of course, my real name is Adam and this is my website showcasing my railroad photography. If you are wondering if people really chase trains the answer is yes they most certainly do! My 5000+ Instagram followers are evidence of that.

Living in Ohio allows for many opportunities to experience contemporary, scenic, and steam railroad operations. I travel whenever I can to take part in photo charters or special events such as seeing the Union Pacific Big Boy #4014.

In addition to chasing real trains, I am a model railroader. I consider myself a Hi-Rail O-Gauge modeler with a focus on the Nickel Plate Road. In the past, I have done R&D work for MTH Electric Trains and Weaver Models on special limited run products. You can see videos of my roughly 11x20 foot two-level model railroad on my YouTube Channel.

I have been an active member of the Nickel Plate Road Historical & Technical Society for years. I currently serve as the Social Media Administrator and the Assistant Editor of the Monthly Newsletter.

In the real world, I am the Marketing & Communications Director for the Elyria Public Library System. A role I unexpectedly fell into thanks to my involvement with the Lincoln Funeral Train.

Anyways, thank you for visiting my site and remember all of my photos are for sale! If you have any questions feel free to use the contact link to send me an email.
