Welcome to my Gallery
of Model and Prototype
Train Photos

This is a mixed gallery of train photos I've taken of prototype railroads and model railroads.

Most are from the Ontario and Quebec provinces of Canada because I am a member of the Niagara Frontier Region (NFR) of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA). 

I am a former member of the Northeastern Region (NER) of the NMRA as I grew up in Montreal and only moved to Ontario in the 80s. I continue to attend NER regional conventions whenever I can. 

There are some terrific model railroads in Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and New York State.

I'll dig out some of the photos from my archives and put them here so check back from time to time to see what I've added. 

If you subscribe to my RSS feed that is located in the Navigation area at the bottom of this page you will receive automatic notification of updates to my site. RSS is totally anonymous and saves you the trouble of using a bookmark to find out if I've added anything new. 

  I have one request. I don't remember where I photographed some of the model railroads or who owned them. Most were photographed while on layout tours at conventions and meets. The photographs were taken because I was trying to capture good modeling ideas and scenes that were an inspiration for me and others in my club. Should you recognize your railroad, or someone's that you know, please send me an email using the contact form reached from my home page. I would like to give proper credit to these superb model railroaders who allowed us to visit their layouts and take pictures.

Another site you might like to look at if you're planning to delve into model railroading is train photos from Greg's site about building a model railroad. (See the sidebar in the right column about how Greg built his website).

Your story remembered is a website where you can share your stories and photos about your hobby.

Another subject that I've always been interested in is photography. I've retired my darkroom and gone fully digital. If you would like to improve your picture taking or learn about using a digital camera, consider this program by Dan Feildman:

And if you're serious about taking photos, invest in a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera that allows you to change lenses. This way you can control both closeups in the basement and long shots on the right-of-way. Check out my  model train photography tips.

Webcams

There are cameras on the Internet take videos of passing trains. You may be familiar with the crossing at Rochelle, Illinois accessible from the Trains.com website where you can view BNSF and Union Pacific trains. They also have another webcam of the Norfolk Southern Railway at Roanoke, Virginia. You may not be familiar with this one covering locations on the Union Pacific that was referenced in Model Railroader magazine in December, 1977. I last checked the site in December, 2008 and it was still operating. Try it for yourself.
