a real slideshow, you are free to browse through at your own pace, and there

Check out my recent photos here.
- The Moffat Tunnel Sub, Colorado, USA , 23/24/25-April-2004:
Pictures from a trip along the ex-Denver & Rio Grande Western's (now Union Pacific) Moffat Tunnel Subdivision.
- Donner Pass, California, USA , May 2002/July 2003:
A collection of images from Southern Pacific's famed crossing of the Sierra Nevada, Donner Pass.
Now Union Pacific's Roseville Subdivision between Roseville, CA and Reno, NV, and still one of the most difficult mountain railroads anywhere.
- Monongahela Coalfields, Pennsylvania, USA , April 2002/September 2003:
Two separate visits to the old Monongahela Railway (now Norfolk Southern) yielded these shots.
While not independant anymore, the old Mon features some of the heaviest and most interesting coal traffic operations in the east.
- Calgary and the Kicking Horse Pass, Alberta, Canada , October 2005:
Dawn til dusk on Canadian Pacific's Kicking Horse Pass - the results of an action-packed day.
The complement of pictures was taken on several evenings in Calgary, showing CP's and CN's yards in the twilight hours,
a difficult yet rewarding time to take pictures that are not "sun over the shoulder" type views.
- Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands, 26-May-2004:
A trip to the busy port of Rotterdam, Europe's largest transloading
facility for bulk, loose, and containerized commodities.
- Bern, Basel, and the Lötschberg area in Switzerland , February 2007:
A look at city railroading and trolley operations in the Swiss cities of
Bern and Basel, and a fun-filled day on the north side of the Lötschberg
Pass in glorious winter weather.
For fans of electric traction, Switzerland has a lot to offer.
- The Mosel Valley, Germany, June 2007:
A day on the Mosel River in glorious early summer weather netted a good variety of trains
running through some of the best scenery Germany has to offer.
As an added bonus, wine lovers can go shop at any of the dozens of vineyards located along
the river (and railroad).
- Midlands and Surrey, Great Britain, October 2008:
A trip to Coventry in the British Midlands and Guildford in Surrey southwest of London netted
a few hours of railfanning, mostly in sunshine to boot.
- New Zealand, February/March-2006:
A totally different world at the other end of the world. Narrow in gauge, but grand in scenery,
and not always easy to railfan. Join the Kiwi trip...
- Stikland, South Africa, 24-March-2007:
Half a day of very different railfanning on one of the main traffic arteries in the
Cape Town area.
