This blog is formerly known as  http://newsdndt.blogspot.com, we had relocated to here after, technical difficulties with the antispam bot from blogger.com. (Their bot would see the numerous links, on the same topic, and mistake us as spam.)

This blog is for the purpose of my sharing my favorite news articles on any general topic I like.. But will mostly share Railroad related news articles and "Casey Jones" News articles. (Note:  the locomotive engineer I was nicknamed after, Railroad news, as well as links I like to other news articles people share with me. I do not write any of these news articles, I do share, my comments, thoughts, and other links in topic relation. None of the links to what I share are necessarily associated or affliated with myself or DNatureofDTrain unless I state otherwise.. I hope you enjoy the content I post for you to read... I will post also at times Amazon affliate links related to news article content, or other small ads in the posts.


About Me: DNatureofDTrain

This blog dedicated to: Kristina Wesley. (a friend whose last thing she told me before she passed on, was she wanted a site and blog just like mine.) My pen name is Casey Heinzism, and Nickname is Casey Jones, after the railroad legend.. My site name and username everywhere is DNatureofDTrain, that is also my stores names. I am 30 years old currently residing in Wisconsin's marshlands. I enjoy animals, and nature, and definately have a love and passion for trains and railroads, and like to make good use of my imaginative sense of humor. I enjoy sharing news articles, as well as stories, thoughts and opinions. I mostly blog for fun....over time updating about once or twice or more a week at least.. (I Have been having troubles posting and updating my blogs as often as I'd like, my computer tends to not work very well, so I have to borrow other computers. Hopefully over time I will manage to get a better computer to keep this updated better. Thank You, to all who view and read my blogs, I hope you enjoy what I have to share, or at least find it informative.
