Craig's Railroad Photography Pages
As the voice on the telephone so eloquently says, "Our menu options have changed." I am slowly re-configuring this website to bring it back to what it once was before I switched to that very unsatisfactory random image gallery system. You know, the one which gave no information about the photos.
Thus, as you visit this while this notice is still visible, some pages may be old, some new, some incomplete. Hang in there; I've a lot of pics to go through!
Within the pages of this website you will see many photographs I have taken of railroad subjects in the western United States of America from the 1970's through the present, as well as a little prose, narrative, and other railroad-related writings.
Note that this entire site is image intense and as such the individual pages may take some time to fully load depending upon your connection speed. Although all images have been optimized to display the highest possible visual quality at the lowest possible file size, I felt that the trade-off of lower-quality images for faster loading times was not acceptable.
