Web Site of the Week: Railroad Picture Archives

For fans of trainspotting, this website is a veritable cornucopia of wonderful images and conversation. The site contains over 2.7 million photos, with images of over 125,000 locomotives, and over 25,000 documented locations. Visitors can browse the collection by locomotives present in each photo and also use the New Photo Albums area to look for albums that cover Amtrak routes, Norfolk Southern divisions, and New Jersey Transit. On the left-hand side of the homepage, visitors can use the View Photos area to look up materials by Contributor Picks and Editors’ Picks, among other headings. Some of the more dramatic and wonderful picks include a shot of steam locomotive near Rock Island, Illinois and a steam passenger train making its way through Lawrence, Kansas. [KMG]
