Autorentext

Jim Loomis relocated to Honolulu from Connecticut in 1962. He ran the city's complaint department for ten years, was general manager of Hawaii's professional baseball team, and helped create a successful advertising agency that specialized in political campaigns. In 2001, he sold the agency and retired to Maui.

As a long-time member of the Rail Passengers Association, Jim served two terms on the organization's Board of Directors. He has traveled extensively for both business and pleasure, with the train always his preferred choice for transportation. Best estimate: he has logged more than 350,000 miles in train travel throughout the world.

Jim is the author of Travel Tales, the popular All Aboard! The Complete North American Train Travel Guide, now in its 4th edition, and co-author of Fascinating Facts About Hawaii.
