Seeing Marty post a black and white photo of his bridge in last month's Photo Gallery has prompted me to once again recycle this ever-popular theme.

So post your B&W, sepia, or 'old timey' photos in this month's Gallery. Either model or prototype photos are welcome.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.


In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

I'll start with one from the Bangor Slate area on my layout.

Back in 1988, I moved and had to destroy my old layout including a large trestle.

So I "burned" the trestle down and took some photos.

This is a sepia version of the On3 pile driver that was featuring as Model Railroader's Model of the Month in MR back in May of 1990.

The sepia effect was done by washing a black and white photo with tea.

This was back before digital photography.

Back in 1986, I began using a pinhole lens for my photography.

This photo is of the interior of an HO scale sawmill that I scratchbuilt for my layout back then.

Again, the sepia effect is done with tea.

Back in 1975, Eric Bracher was just beginning to make kits under the Rio Grande Models banner.

I used several of his machine shop tool kits for the machine shop of this HOn3 engine house I scratch built as a display model in my Train Shop in Alaska.




Although this model was built almost 40 years ago, I think the quality of the model still holds up well by today's standards.

The model was destroyed in a move so all I have are the few photos I took back then.

Some day I will model this. I took this photo of another photo hanging on the wall of a deli on Pulis Ave. in Franklin Lakes, NJ. The deli sits close to the site of the old feed store.

Great shots Darryl. I enjoyed reading of how you created the sepia colors 'back in the day'.

That tea stain method for sepia tone sure sounds a lot better than the nasty stuff we used to use in the photo studio I worked in while in school in the 60s.

Thanks very much for this theme. It is one of few in which I can offer some examples of my own work because I am still very young to the hobby and modelling.

This is one of my top five or six favourite photos from my last layout. It was imaged in colour using my old Canon P&S, and easily converted to grey-scale in FastStone Image Viewer.

An aged version of my very first published model railroad photo, in the May (?) 1983 Model Railroader. Age effects done in my Paint Shop Pro program:



The Bucyrus shovel was scratchbuilt in HO scale.
