Tim Barry is as much a legend as the characters he creates within the prose of his writing. His character, his person and his purpose all seem to come out of a great American novel, yet he fully embraces the technology that surrounds him. Each man is nothing but a collection of experiences and lessons they have learned amongst that time. For Tim Barry, that is no different. He is a man who has conquered the roads and pathways set before him. He has traveled the great mythical highways of the world of trains. He has battled with the disease and demons of diabetes, and even more important to the story of Tim Barry, the adventures of becoming a father to a beautiful baby girl.

Today we join Tim to talk of his journeys through life. We talk about his early train experiences, his health and his daughter and how they all factor into the man, the myth and the legend that he has become today.
