It worked out so well the first time, we decided to give this adventure one more run before heading to Colorado. All the pics are here.

Art After Dark at SLORRM

by on Jul.07, 2017, under Amtrak, BCWRR, CCRRF, Friends-SMVRR, PBJRR, PCRR, SLORRM

The San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum (SLORRM) joined up with the SLO Art After Dark program to exhibit painters, photographers, and videographers of railroad-themed works. And there was a slideshow there of my photos. Fabulously successful event for the Museum! That’s my slideshow running in the upper-right portion of the photo. Here’s the SLORRM webpage.

SLO Train Day

by on May.13, 2017, under Amtrak, Friends-SMVRR, SLORRM, SMVRR

Probably the 2nd largest day at the SLO Railroad Museum (behind the Central Coast Railroad Festival, perhaps). Lots of activities and people. Notables this year included a new exhibit opening of the Santa Maria Valley Railroad, a presentation by Cindy Ransick about the new book Historic Santa Maria Valley, an Amtrak talk by Dave Weisman, and considerable progress on the Museum’s model railroad.

Lynn and I took the 4 boys to see Santa at the SLO Railroad Museum. We went by train, of course. All the photos.

Great Lodges by Train

by on Aug.31, 2016, under Amtrak

The four of us took a fantastic trip to Great Lodges of the northwest this August. We road Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to Klamath Falls where we got off and headed over to Oregon Caverns. Then north to Mount Hood and Mount Rainer. We boarded the Starlight in Seattle for the return home. All the photos (lots).

Central Coast Railroad Festival

by on Oct.08, 2015, under Amtrak, CCRRF, PCRR, SLORRM, SMVRR, UPRR

I gave a talk on the SMVRR at the SLO Railroad Museum on Saturday morning. I also gave a talk Thursday evening at the SLO Library entitled “Railroading Galore in the Greater SLO Area” (PDF of the slides). All the photos, schedule, etc. are still available at the CCRRF website. I particularly enjoyed the participation by the Jack House and the SLO History Center.
