Train Picture Gallery

The train gallery contains over 6,000 pictures and is divided into several sections, so you can view pictures from a specific railroad or subject. Some of the pictures are used in articles in the library and may be used in more than one series in the Gallery. Each section in the gallery is like a looping hallway that returns you to the main gallery. The picture pages have been chained together, so you can start with the first one in a series and advance from page to page using the right arrow at the bottom of each page to go through the whole series.

Generally the left arrow and link at the bottom of each picture page will take you to the Index for that Gallery series. However, I am condensing the gallery and removing duplicate pages. On some pages, there may be two left arrows with links. The top link should take you to an article in the Library about freight train symbol history or one of the Day on the Railroad series. The lower link will take you back to the Index for that Gallery series. The last page in a series will either let you come back to this main gallery or let you go to the home page. Remember that all of the photographs are copyrighted.

Photo CDs

I have updated all of the pictures in the Gallery after scanning my old slides. If you would like copies of the my pictures you can purchase a photo CD. Each photo CD contains 40 high resolution (3,000 x 1,800 pixels) TIF files as well as the lower resolution (900 x 600) JPG pictures that appear in the Gallery pages. The disk number is at the end of the descriptive text on each updated picture page in the Gallery. You can purchase a disk and printout any of the pictures for your own use to dress up your train room or add color to a house that just cries out for more train pictures. Each photo CD cost $10.00. Please include the disk number in your order as there are over 130 disks available. See Sales for shipping and payment instructions. I am also adding some pictures that my brother, Steve, took during our trips in the early 1970s. His pictures may be added to a photo CD later as I have time. I've just finished adding his Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas pictures.

A few pictures taken on a short mini-vacation in October 2006 of Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight trains between Wichita Falls, TX and Lupton, AZ came from two very different cameras. I used a Sony digital camera that stores pictures on floppy disks. It was old, but it still worked. The other camera was a Sony HD video camcorder. It can also take digital pictures, but all of the pictures from that camera are snap shots captured from the videotape. Because of the higher resolution of the HD camcorder, the snapshots don't look too bad. The only problem is that high speed trains tend to blur slightly due to the picture being a composite of two interlaced scans. Take a look at the gallery and see if you can tell the difference between the pictures. Barring transcription errors and my dyslexia, I think I have all the correct engine numbers. There were times I was so busy filming that I didn't have time to record all of the numbers. None of the pictures from that trip are on the photo CDs, thus will not have a disk number.

All of the photographs have been retouched to give greater visual impact. This process used to take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour per picture. However with a new slide scanner I can work much more efficiently. I won't go into all the processes it takes to make pictures look closer to the original.

In a similar way, Jesus wants to clean up our lives and improve our image. It takes time to eliminate these rough spots. But first you need to place yourself in His care. See my testimony page to read about my own experience. This page is rather long and may take awhile to load.

I also have a couple pages on my roots and some old train pictures my grandfather took in Wadley, GA around 1950.
