Mark Forbes's Collection
Welcome to Mark Forbes's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Mark Forbes.  

I've been photographing railroad subjects since I got my first 35mm camera in 1971. Unfortunately, the budget of an unemployed 14 year old didn't support much film, and I was never able to take many photos of my favorite road, the GM&O, before it merged into the IC and was destroyed in September 1972.  Later, I WAS able to take many fine photos of the Southern Pacific before its merger with the UP in 1996. The irony was that I set out to take a lot of photos before it merged with the ATSF...which never happened, despite both railroads jumping ahead and painting some of their livery in the "Kodachrome" paint scheme. I have more photos to upload, so I'll be doing so from time-to-time as I can scan them.

I hope you enjoy some of the photos I've posted.
