Railroads and Railroading

You can also find some classic shots from the 1960s and 1970s
in the 4 x 5 section of the Oldies Gallery on PBase.
Also check some of the slide scans on Ye Olde Photographer's
PBase Konica FP page and the 35 mm Archives
More recent railroad themed work will be found through
it's own section in the PBase Railroad galleries.

A narrow gage line still running (a little) near
Mt. Union, PA. The state could use a little
urging to preserve this complete RR, shops and all.

a dreary, drizzly day at the Frostburg Depot.

This building is now a Radisson Hotel near the Steamtown National Historic Site in the downtown area. Portions of existing structures including a roundhouse have been incorporated into the museum at Steamtown. Trips run behind steam and diesel.

The NMRA, model railroading. That and full size railroads, another potential obsession!

Occasionally the Asylum Photographer gets steamed-up over railroad subjects. You will find some classic railroad shots from the 1960s and 1970s scattered through his Oldies Gallery on PBase.
