Photographer Eric Miller takes us on a tour of the rugged former Clinchfield. Today the railroad is CSX, but the region still bears witness to a daily assault of heavy coal trains and spectacular scenery in this most beautiful part of Appalachia.
Photographer Tim Stockwell has spent lots of time on the old Bennington & Rutland, today's Vermont Railway's B&R subdivision between Rutland and North Bennington, Vermont. This once sleepy gateway now hosts heavy traffic in one of the most scenic parts of New England. Tim takes us trackside for a look at modern-day operations on a very old piece of railroad.
Photographer Mike Zollitsch gets out at night with camera and tripod and shares some moody images of railroading after the sun goes down. Mike does it the old fashioned way, with available light, and no big flash equipment. The result is a subtle, yet dramatic look at railroading after dark.
