Pennsylvania Railroad Photographs

Subtitle

Welcome to my website!

Enjoy, take your time and look around, review the various pages, especially view the Photo Galleries * of the favorite (over 2000) images. If interested I offer you the finest quality prints and other options of Pennsylvania Railroad photographs at very reasonable prices.   

NOTE: If you would rather NOT listen to the music on any of the pages scroll to the bottom and click on the icon (II pause) to turn off the music. Best to do if you are watching any of the K4s #1361 videos. Sorry, I need to correct the quicktime software at times to fix the icon.

The photographs are from a special Altoona Works collection of original Builders and in-service photographs. Many are Builders photographs taken by the PRR photographer when the unit was new or had just been re-shopped.

Attention Modelers: I have broadside views of most Builders photographsand 11 x 14 size is recommended for superb detailing. Please just ask.

For all of the photographs available by Class refer to the pages shown. 

Options: If other than prints are preferred use the options to have your photograph choices placed on a quality CD or the images may be sent to you via email.

All photographs shown or listed on this website are available for prints or other options as noted. Photographs listed and not shown in a Gallery, let me know and I will post them in the Request Gallery for you to view. 

For more information refer to RATES & SERVICES page.                     

Refer to Photograph List B for more favorites and the latest images posted  in the Photo Galleries.

See my new Horseshoe Curve Power & Special Freight Cars Galleries. Also, Diesel-Electric Locomotive Diagrams and PRR Calendar Prints are now available.

I've just added another new gallery titled PRR 11 x 14 Original Laminated Prints a LIMITED collection that can easily be framed to make a special gift for the Pennsy fan.

Be sure to view my collection of photographs on the About Me page.

The images shown in the Photo Galleries are lower in resolution than those you purchase. The original high resolution jpeg files are reduced to approx. 800x650 in size. All photographs purchased are processed at a photo lab from high resolution digital files for the very best clarity and detailing.

To place an order ?Contact Me and give me your desired photos by the number. I recommend having a pen and pad handy. You will be very pleased with the quality of my photographs.

Please sign my Guestbook and if desired you may become a Member, no fees or special considerations required.

Turn up the sound and enjoy the Smooth Jazz sounds of Gregg Karukas and Jeff Lorber.
