Thomas Downing can be best described as, “Talented, meticulous and reliable,” as told by the Live Steamers Staff.

Thomas has been a member of the Southern California Live Steamers and a City of Torrance Volunteer since 2008.  He has been a board member, treasurer, membership coordinator and souvenir stand coordinator. He really enjoys challenges, which can be seen by the way he puts in many hours on the long list of items that need to be done at the Live Steamers Club. Some of the tasks he does are rebuild train tracks, train repairs/upgrades, painting and cleaning. He also uses his talents to build miniature trains that do justice to the “real thing.”
