Ever since Tom Ward was a little boy he has loved trains. Always able to draw, these two passionate loves are combined in detailed pencil drawings

After a lengthy career in the road transport industry, Tom now resides in the beautiful community of Lambton Shores, near the Canadian Lake Huron shoreline. From the domicile, Tom now devotes himself to creative expression…..drawing and writing about trains.
