Welcome my Live Steam website! My name is Father Jay Finelli. I am a Priest from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, located in the state of Rhode Island in the USA. I started this website in November of 1995. It began as Fr. Finelli’s Railroad Page. The site simply contained one page about my personal story and how I came to be interested in trains. Through the years this website, SteamingPriest.com, has grown to be a major resource in the Live Steam community. This site has the largest list of Live Steam Suppliers to be found on the internet. It also contains links to clubs, other live steam sites, railroad museums, a vast gallery of live steam meets and trains, an expanding collection of video clips, projects, my own construction projects which include my locomotives and my own back yard railroad. There is a list for obituaries of members of our great hobby. I’m always looking for new links, projects, etc… So if you can suggest a good link, a site with a project, you want to write an article to be posted here, just let me know, I would appreciate your input.
