About the Photo Archive Maintainer

The NERAIL Photo Archives are maintained by Jeff Morris. Jeff was born and raised in Quincy (pronounced "kwin-zee"), Massachusetts, but now makes his home in Kingston, Washington (just west of Seattle).

Jeff's interest in railroading started at a very early age. At about 4, he received his first train set; a small Marx O scale set, with a #490 engine, two cars, and a caboose. The fire, as they say, was lit. As a youngster, his interests turned toward HO scale model railroading, and even early rail-fanning. While other kids were playing baseball or football, Jeff could usually be found on his Scwinn Stingray bicycle, chasing the once a day train through his home town on the Fore River Railroad (now the Fore River Transportation Company.) During his teenage years Jeff constructed several HO scale model train layouts, with a few diversions in to N scale.

Now in his 50s, Jeff's primary model train interests are still with HO scale, although he has also taken up collecting Marx O scale trains, and he has managed to acquire a small but growing collection of Marx pre-war and post-war equipment as well.

In addition to running his own business and the Greatrails Photo Archives, Jeff was formerly the Director of Information Technology for the Cape Cod Central Railroad (Official Web Site), a small tourist railroad that runs sightseeing trains through Cape Cod, Massachusetts during the summer months, and an award-winning elegant dinner train throughout most of the year.

Jeff is a big fan of the "golden era" of railroading, with his favorite railroads being the Pennsylvania and New York Central. His current modeling is of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
