Photos and videos are as much a part of model railroading as anything else. After all, a model railroad is indeed a work of art - a 3-Dimensional sculpture containing all the artistic elements of landscaping, architecture, visual design, illusion, color management, audiology, impressionism, mechanical art, electronic art, humor and humanism. The same goes for railfanning prototype photos that help provide the inspiration for modeling. I think every publication related to trains and railroads should have a gallery of media elements to display the artistic qualities of this great hobby. So here is a small collection to start with. If you have a great railroad photo or video - real or modeled - that you want to share, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and watch it appear on this page.
