The intent of this thread is to have a place for members to post their personal photographs of prototype subjects related to railroading to be used for reference when building layouts, dioramas or structures.
Any prototype pictures of structures, industries, bridges, line side details, docks, locomotives, rolling stock, trucks, boats etc. are acceptable.

The sole purpose of this thread is to have a place for members to post their own personal photographs.
Please do not post links to other peoples pictures.
These will be removed by the mods.

Links to collections of photos maintained by Museums, Universities, Libraries, and other organizations should still be posted in the Museum, University & Library Photo Archives thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8408

Well, I missed the October Old-Timey gallery as I couldn't locate this photo of a Circus Train on the no longer tracks that were about 150' away from the back edge of my property line.

I'm lucky enough that I live within a reasonable distance to the Strasburg RR. Here is #90 running the Santa Train a few weeks back.

I'd probably be better off finding a blueprint to work from. Once I built the first one, the res would be cake. It's like 157 feet tall, so it would take a while to put together one main. But, very doable. I'll have to consider it, for a 'Structures' AP. project.

Great pictures! Did you take enough to model this thing? lots of action for that printer of yours.

The longest trestle in the world. the Tulip Trestle. Tulip Indiana. Still in active use for the Indiana Railroad.

Bonnie and I were out in Phillipsburg, NJ two weeks ago and I took these shots of an ex-O&W Milk car, ex-L&HR flanger, now belonging to the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians.

Here is a little history of the car and some more photos. It seems in worse shape now than when the museum purchased it.


The site of the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians is the old CNJ yard and freight house in Phillipsburg.

In their H series "Heritage" line of kits, which were the last kits they sold, they had a model similar to the photo you posted. However the one in the kit looked like it have been built from a converted caboose. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ambroid-Heritage-Line-HO-Kit-H-19-LeHigh-amp-Hudson-River-Flanger-Train-Car-Boxed-/202221476068?nma=true&si=OR59D9JpwyBDAEZCpubLWe3Js5c%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I recently found some railroad related pictures, among my Father-in-Laws things after he passed away. He lived in Bradford, Pennsylvania, but I have no idea where these pictures were taken. Perhaps some of you fellows could determine that by some of the trains in the pictures.

My very first image I took of a 2 ft gauge cane train in August 1966 which resulted in my life long obsession with sugar cane railways in Queensland and narrow gauge in general around the world.

Here an 0-6-0DH built by E M Baldwin in Sydney, New South Wales enters the mill yard at the Moreton Central Mill, Nambour with a load of wholestick sugar cane. The driver's assistant is ready to jump off the locomotive to run ahead to change the points where necessary. A 2 ft gauge Shay locomotive can be seen "preserved" in the background.

This LIRR Commuter is pretty modern compared to the cars I rode to the Hicksville station in the '60s.

Early next week, it will move to Hartford CT, then to Providence RI, then back to Florida for storage, donation or scrap.

Manchester, NH. Final stop for the Greatest Show on Earth?

Nice post James'.

The last Ringling Brothers circus move to Manchester, NH yesterday. Pan Am Railways brought out their Official Train FP-9s (ex Conway Scenic, ex Via Rail, exx CN?). This drew a lot of fans, and since the trip was about 45 miles on 10 MPH track, there was a crowd at every grade crossing.

Coming around the wye at Ayer, Mass. Leaving the old Worcester, Nashua & Portland line for a mile of the former Fitchburg RR, then onto the Stoney Brook Branch.

Here is a tank car I photographed in Williams Arizona while I was on one of my motorcycle trips. If you are interested in modeling this car we provided a zip file of images of this car showing many of the details such as the saddles etc.

As part of our article on scratchbuilding gons http://cwrailman.com/CW%20Gons/CW%20Gons.htm
I posted several images of D&RGW gons in various conditions of disrepair. I believe I posted a link to that article previously but some may not frequent that thread so I am posting the images here. These are photographs of D&RGW gons seen and photographed in Silverton Colorado. We offer a free download of images of these and other gon details for the modeler to use as when building their models. Since much of the hardware used in building these gons was similar to that used for standard gauge cars of a similar time period we used the Narrow Gauge hardware when scratchbuilding our gons.http://cwrailman.com/CW%20Gons/DRGWGons.zip
