Hard work is the name of the game for this kitchen and bath remodeler.  A member of ILS since 1997, Bill has one of the nicest steamers in the entire club and he is quite proud of it.  There is more information about this engine and its history under the locomotives page of this website. Bill has his own machine shop and that classifies him as someone you need to know. Bill recently served as Chairman.

 

John and Betty Lime -

The absolutely coolest thing about John is that he is a Pearl Harbor Survivor.  If you are a WWII buff, John does share his experiences of being at Wheeler Field that infamous day.  Despite his age, he makes almost every meet of the year.  When he is not playing trains, he volunteers at St. Francis Hospital in Indianapolis. Newly married in 2007 to Betty. His favorite engine is the Union Pacific Challenger.
