ONCE I DID—AT LEAST ON A VOLUNTEER BASIS—NOT NOW. 😦

You have been working on the railroad all the live long day, but you are not doing it to pass the time away.  Maybe those of you who volunteer on those excursion railroads or at railroad museums may be passing the time away, but those who get paid are doing it for a living, and they are helping many people along the way.  Regardless, you all have a passion for the railroad.  From the man who sells the tickets to the engineer to the conductor to the porter to the chef to the waiter to the baggage handler to the mechanic to the tracker worker to the museum curator to the gift shop worker to the volunteer worker to the restoration worker to the model railroad builder to the photographer to the writer to the historian to the information person to the travel agent, you all play a big role…

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
