If you enjoy reminiscing about the past (and who doesn't), then this new photo-driven section may warrant your attention. From time-to-time, we'll turn the clock back and focus on some small facet of the railroad scene. These brief profiles are intended to provide a historic perspective to the evolution of railroading and motive power technologies. These trips into yesterday are possible thanks to the efforts of photographers who took the time to document the events of the past six transition decades.
