I took these photos from the top of the parking garage at Cooper Hospital in Camden NJ.

The first photo is the Pavonia rail yard - you may have to look hard because it was a bit hazy and I was maxed out on my zoom - look between the smoke stacks. I missed a freight train passing on a near track by two minutes.


I took these photos at a fairly high resolution. I may try to use this one for a "photo" background building. Note the size and height of the roof tank.


I thought that this photo may be useful for street modeling. Note the Patco high speed line passenger train passing by.


In the distance you can see the Philadelphia skyline. Closer there is a tan brick building - Camden County Jail and the brown brick building is the Court House.


Finally I thought this was just a good "city" image.


I want to explore this city more but it isn't the safest place to be. There are some safe areas near the court house and collage (same area) so I'll think about it. I had a lawyer tell me once he only goes to Camden between 8 or 9 in the morning until no later then 3, 4 tops. He theory was that the people he wanted to avoid were asleep during those hours.

Joe, you've got some interesting photos. That second one with the tall water tank is a great reference shot.

Here is a companion group of city photos that were posted a couple of years ago. Instead of contemporary scenes, however, these are historical photos that someone might find useful as a reference:

Thanks for the link Mike. I love old photos in general but old city photos and rail related city photos seem to be hard to come by.

About 24-30 months ago several of us had an on-going discussion about urban modeling and all the details that could be included in city scenes. I'll post the link in case anyone is interested in reading through the discussions or even reviving the thread:

Hey, Joe, great images. In fact, some of them would make great background scenes.


Now, how the Camden, NJ skyline found its way to central Georgia, I have no clue.
