Meet the railfans at Milepost 1147.2

Glenn Gehlke

When he is not shooting video of trains or updating the pages of this web site, Glenn is a mild-mannered copy editor for a major California Bay Area newspaper chain.

An avid rail enthusiast since 1996, Glenn has written several articles on railfanning and is what you might call an armchair modeler — one who spends a lot of time thinking about that great layout he is going to build one of these days when he gets around to it.

Glenn is a lifelong California resident who grew up in Hayward (a hotbed of rail action to be sure) before moving to the Central Valley in 1988. He currently resides in Oakley with his wife and son.

Roni Gehlke

A native New Yorker, Roni came to California in the late '70s. She developed a love for photography early in life and has used her skills to capture a variety of subjects on film, from recording artists and film stars to festivals and breaking news.

Although not a diehard railfan, Roni does enjoy the challenge of capturing trains in action on the many train-watching trips she takes with her family.

She owns her own public relations and desktop publishing company, and when she is not working or watching trains she likes to volunteer her time with local service groups.

Benjamin Gehlke

Born in May 1994, Benji is a major reason his parents are into trains. He eats, sleeps and breathes the subject and says he hopes one day to become a dispatcher. Benji has tried his young hand at railfan photography, but he is generally content to watch the action and play with his HO-gauge layout.

We welcome your comments and suggestions. Please send e-mail to Glenn or Roni Gehlke.
