Did you know that …

Peter used to own a turn-of-the-Century (circa 1900) Zulu Renaissance-style passenger train station; and along with it went a train that had a full-working diesel locomotive, antique passenger cars and caboose!

Also, while Peter lived in the Middle East for a time on a work assignment, he was kidnapped. (You have to ask him about that one!)
