WELCOME TO RAILROAD RICH'S WEB SITE!!!!
Hi! Railroad Rich Kimmel here! I just wanted to say a few words about who I am. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but have lived many places in my life! I have been a railfan for many years, and this site is about railroads and train-related stuff! I retired from a Florida Water Management District in 2012, and have moved to Grayling, Michigan, a small town in the northern Lower Peninsula. When my career first started, I was working for the State of Michigan, in Lansing.
Other than railroading and riding AMTRAK trains, I enjoy music and other activities. I was a model railroader for a few years; however, that hobby unfortunately, just wasn't for me!! I was inspired to create this web site by the folks at trainweb.com, as a forum for sharing with others some aspects of my railroad hobby. Therefore, in this site you will find a few railroad photos, train trip reports, and several railroad guides I have put together.
