Jim Mann has been fascinated by trains in varing degrees of intensity for most of his life. He grew up near the south portal of the Perkasie Tunnel on the
Bethlehem branch of the Readng Railroad. This interest was no doubt sparked by his mother's reactions whenever she had freshly laundered bed sheets and
clothing, hanging on a wash line to dry, and a steam locomotive approached, furiously huffing and puffing it's way north. The piercing sound of the whistle
before the train entered the tunnel... meant that his mother had about 5 minutes to pull her laundry down before cinders and fine ash, drifting overhead...
began to fall. This was all very interesting to a young lad. A few years later... Jim's father unveiled a pair of Lionel, Santa Fe, streamliner cab units in their
dazzling red & silver warbonnet livery, at the head of a short freight on a small circle of track around a Christmas Tree. From there on... Jim was hooked...
