End of the line

Delaplane, Virginia

This is the final post for Photography In Place.

After seven and a half years, it is time to move on. Many thanks to everyone who has followed along over the years. If you have any interest in railroad photography, I hope that you will check out The Trackside Photographer, a website dedicated to the railroad landscape that I started last March.

Have a great weekend, and as always, thanks for reading Photography In Place.

The Trackside Photographer

One hundred years ago, during the First World War, railroads and gunpowder came together to create explosive growth in a small West Virginia town. Doug Bess tells the story of his hometown from the coming of the railroad in the late 19th century to the present. Click here to read "Railroad Town: Nitro, West Virginia."

The Trackside Photographer is the website dedicated to the railroad landscape.

The Trackside Photograher

In 1967 a derailment on the Maine Central near Dresden, Maine, brought out the Waterville wreck train to clean up the mess. The crew worked through the night and the next day the railroad was running as normal. Bob Hughes was on hand to tell the story of "A Job Well Done."
