Author Bio

Nancy Norris contributes the columns “Greening Your Railway” and “Plant Portraits” as well as feature articles for Garden Railways magazine. In addition, she’s a garden railway planning and construction consultant, having founded her business, Garden Lines, in 1997 for building outdoor train layouts in her own San Francisco Bay area. Nancy has a B.S. in Plant & Soil Sciences, a Master of Occupational Education, and has completed a full schedule of gardening in New England and California. As an education researcher in the 1980s, Nancy became a ham radio operator and boat builder. She also learned to build and fly radio-controlled model airplanes, which her grandson wanted to fly. She gives him credit for towing her to a local train show where she saw her first copy of Garden Railways magazine. Now she and her grandson are active in their club, the Bay Area Garden Railway Society, building and running live steam locomotives.
