Dreams Do Come True!
For decades, readers of The Shopper have known Dr. Bill Austin as the beloved author of “Relationships”—one of our most popular monthly columns. What few of us suspected was that Bill is a passionate train and model-train enthusiast. Recently his wife, Karen, treated him to a trip to the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in Cumberland, Maryland, where he realized his life-long dream of driving a train. Dressed like an engineer from the good old days of railroad travel, Bill took his place at the throttle for an experience he will never forget!
The Western Maryland Railroad crew: Brakeman Kevin Griffin, Engineer-For-a-Day Bill Austin, and Engineer Mike McMarlin.
Dr. Bill Austin is ready to go. All aboard!
