Site news

Welcome to!

This site archives every photo and video I have taken of trains and related railroad paraphernalia since I was introduced to the hobby on the fundamental philosophy that I do not have the right to choose what you consider to be a good shot of a train; what one person considers a bad or useless picture may be exactly what someone else is looking for. Please enjoy your stay and please refrain from mirroring or mass-saving the content of this web site. I hope you enjoy browsing these photos and videos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

This site currently archives 80414 pictures, 2106 videos, and totals 348 gigabytes.
