We’ve been in the business for quite some time, with a combined 25+ years of experience in the industry. From navigating the complexities of an Amtrak-approved charter, to putting on a full schedule of Class 1 steam excursions, to fully integrated ticketing, marketing and social media – we’ve done it all. Meet our team!

Adam Auxier

Adam has been at the head of some truly epic train trips. After leaving behind a career in the children’s toy industry, he has managed and operated private rail car trips for Trains Magazine, NARP, Millennial Trains Project, Uncommon Journeys and many other customers across thousands of miles. As excursion manager for Station to Station, Adam oversaw the logistics of a magical art installation on rails, with music, performances at station stops, as part of a 4500 mile Amtrak special train. Adam spent three years managing the operation of the N&W 611 excursion program for the Virginia Museum of Transportation, with a 22 car consist. He has been featured in WIRED, The LA Times, Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine, Chicago Tribune and the Washington Post. For a side-hobby, he has written two feature articles for Trains Magazine on Brazil’s Vale Mining Railroad and Peru’s railroad system. Adam is a graduate of the University of Denver and lives in Eden Prairie Minnesota with his wife and son.

Always keep moving.

Lou Capwell

I spend the bulk of my time promoting, marketing, and social media-ing for various clients in the world of rail excursions, private railcar charters, and other train-adjacent stuff. I did the social media for a notable Class 1 steam operation.  I’m part of the team over at Rail Excursion Management Co., handling our marketing efforts for the upcoming  Autumn Colors Express. I’m on the board of directors at the French Lick Scenic Railway. Basically, if you spend much time in this business, it’s likely that we already know each other.

At heart, though, I’m a photographer. I grew up with it, I’ve made my living from it, and it’s my first love. For the railroad event stuff, check out Centerbeam Photo – we’d love to photograph your next event, big or small. For photos of railroad operations, and whatever else has caught my eye lately, my Flickr page is an excellent place to spend a few minutes. If you’re looking for a more up-to-the-second accounting of what I’m up to, I update my Instagram pretty often as I roam the country on a train.

Mike Voiland

Truly the jack of all trades, and master of most. Mike is a Systems Engineer where he builds large public safety and utility radio systems. In his spare time, you will find him repairing passenger cars, or working on his own 10/6 sleeper. Mike was instrumental in managing the ticketing, mechanical support, and servicing of the N&W 611 excursion consist during 2015-2017. Mike was an avid volunteer onboard New River Train where he hanlded night servicing. If there is something that is, big, mechanical and complicated, it is very likely that Mike can fix it. Mike is a graduate of Devry University and lives in Roanoke, Virginia.
