What a great tribute to your father James. It must have been awesome to share in something like this with him and all the great memories it will provide. Speaking of memories, did you and your brother grow up in SoCal as I remember hanging out on occasion with a John Doughty. My condolences to you and your family.

I think this is such a wonderful addition to the site. I am sorry for your loss. From someone who spent the majority of his life watching trains with his Dad, I understand and feel the love. For people like us, trains, railroading, train watching, and walking old abandoned lines will always mean more than what meets the eye: they bring us home. Thanks for sharing.

I am particularly touched by this beautiful tribute to your father. I applaud you for posting it and applaud RP.NET for accepting it. I feel the loss of my father more keenly than any and always recall our good times, whether conspiring to avoid Mom and sneak off to town or watching Alcos kicking cars in Kentucky. Do I see Air Force in the picture also? All the better.

My father is retired Lt. Colonel Air Force. He also flew with the Civil Air Patrol in New Mexico and was a chaplain in Albuquerque. Frank, we did live in Huntington Beach, Ca from 1975-1986. My dad took my brother John and I on many trips to Cajon Pass, Tehachapi, Beaumont Hill, as well as New Mexico, Virginia, Colorado and very remote places out in the deserts east of Tucson when he was stationed there.

Whether it is taking in a ball game, going fishing, or spending a day watching trains, the camaraderie of being with friends, a brother or a dad makes it all the more enjoyable. Thank you to Railpictures for the blessing and for the kind words all of you have expressed.

A special photo of a special occasion. Those of us who have the good fortune to be able to share our hobbies with our Dads are very lucky people. Hang on to all those great memories, and let them bring a smile to your face!

So sorry for your loss John. I also got my love of trains from my father. I agree that I'm glad they accepted this photo.
