About Me: Jemery, IgoUgo’s resident railfan, lives in Chicago. He was a radio/television news reporter and employee-communications editor before becoming an advertising writer specializing in health care. He’s often been a crew member on special rail excursions, and hopes his journals and photography will inspire renewed interest in rail passenger travel.
Jemery, who also loves flying, has visited 105 countries and ridden
at least some rail in 60 of them.
