What's the temperature like over there? We've been in the mid-teens here and it's pissing me off. I want some colder weather! The observations for the last few days show we haven't even dropped into single digits at night. WTF. May was colder than this; we got below zero at a couple of points.

Some winter this is. I had to laugh when some guy on Railpage Australia was bitching about how cold it was on his visit to Melbourne last week and how happy he is to have gone home to a warmer climate.

When did your passion for trains/trams first really take hold of you?

The guy has an ERA in the low 3's. At his age. Amazing.

2nd best pitcher I've ever seen, discounting assholes suspected of being on steroids.

It's been constant my entire life. Some of my earliest memories are of playing with my toy trains and watching Thomas The Tank. I had toys of trucks and planes and such too, but I always loved the trains the most.

I suppose it was kind of inevitable too. I grew up in a part of New Zealand with a lot of trains and trams; you could barely go 10 minutes from my house in any direction without running into a rail line or a tram heritage museum or a model railway. My family's history is mixed up in railway disasters, and I was born with enough distance between myself and the disasters that they are a source of curiosity and interest rather than repulsion.

I only ask because while not nearly on your level, I adore train travel. I got to ride a Bullet Train in Japan and was smiling the whole time. Also, rode the Train from Salzburg to Vienna and was like a little kid.....not to mention train trips here in the States.....
