Welcome to my railroad photo albums page. Luckily I live in northwest Indiana with its rich diversity of trains and near enough to Chicago to take advantage of their railroading action as well. Now retired, I have the freedom and time to follow my amateur photography avocation.
My albums are an eclectic collection of railroad related shots. I enjoy all aspects of railroading - motive power, freight cars, fallen flags, buildings, maintenance, ROW, commuters, and museums. Since I am a Hoosier through and through, anything connected to Indiana holds a special place.
Lately I have been driven to scan and post older railroad photos that I purchase on-line, at train shows and antique stores. Although b&w photos are much more stable than the more recent color ones, they are still prone to degradation, hence the urgency in salvaging the images before they are lost. I try to give credit to the photographers when listed and relate as much information about the locomotive as I can find. If you notice a discrepancy or can help identify those without a known location, it would be appreciated.
To make it easier to find a locomotive for a particular line, I'm slowly trying to consolidate the albums by the railroad - the B&O and the Reading albums have been started. Now the task is to move the photos from individual albums! Please browse my albums via the menu located here. I would enjoy your comments, thoughts and especially your corrections to the photos I’ve posted. I am here to learn as well as to share my photos.
My wife loves to travel and is very understanding about including a visit to a railroad spot so please help me here. If you know of particularly good locations to view trains anywhere in the nation, let me know. That way I can make her happy while I take some more railroad photos!
You may browse my collection of pictures via the menu located on the left hand side of the page. I hope you enjoy the collection and thanks for stopping by!
