Images: These pictures are not censored for quality. What one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Videos: These videos are very big, which is why railfanning videos are so rare on line. As long as Windows Media Player says "Connecting" it is working, even it if appears to be taking a very long time. It says "Connecting" until it has finished downloading the video. Please be patient. If you are unable to play these videos with Windows Media player, a problem which exists with some versions of Media Player and (sometimes) with Internet Explorer versions lower than 6, I strongly recommend the use of Quicktime if it is available. If you are using Linux, mplayer needs to be told that the videos have a bit depth of 16 (-bpp 16) to work.

Venice, Italy

Venice is a historic island city on the north-east coast of Italy known for its walkability (a large part of the island cannot be traversed by car) and its canal routes to get around the city.

Venice, Italy
January 01, 2012 I took the direct train from Geneva to Venice and explored the fascinating island city for several hours, before taking a convoluted overnight route back to Geneva via Milan, Chiasso, and Zurich.
