Joe Rice reported in Live Steam Magazine, March/April 1998:

Louie first became involved in the Live Steam hobby in 1952. He took time out from the hobby to serve in Viet Nam, then became a locomotive engineer for the Burlington Northern Railroad. He holds degrees in Aeronautical Engineering an Business Administration. Currently, he is a consultant-supervisor in the construction industry, and also runs a part-time home business supplying freight car wheels, CAD services for custom locomotives and car designs, and the rebuilding of used locomotives. He's been involved in the design or construction of 20 miniature railroads, totaling over 26 miles of trackage. Louie loves the hobby, and wants to see it survive through future generations. As he puts it, "Beginners are the key to our future."
