Railroad Photography! Norfolk Southern Locomotives 9716 and 3604 in Gainesville

 "Norfolk Southern Locomotives 9716 and 3604 in Gainesville"
(C) Allen Pearson Photography

A few years ago, I began my journey back into watching trains or railfanning as it is known. At the time, I was only aware of a few places where I could watch and photograph the trains going by. In some cases, I was having more interference with man-made items in the shots than I wanted.

"Man-made?" I started out in photography as a nature photographer. I was a purist, and still, am in many respects. Being a purist, I didn't want any items created by man in my photos and I didn't use Lightroom or PhotoShop to edit either. I loved portraying nature as God intended its beauty to be. While I am still a nature photographer as you will see on my website and posts, I have branched out into Railroad Photography too.

Back then, I was sitting by the railroads watching the trains without any scanner radio or other techy gear which would give me detail about the trains coming through. This was the way I grew up. So for some of my photography, I do not have the train numbers, I know the date, September 13, 2016, and that's about it. Now that I have a scanner radio, I am learning to gather the detail which would make my photography a little more interesting.

By the way, my photography work can be viewed at While I do not have an e-commerce website these days, purchases can be made by contacting me by email at  My work is available in traditional matte archival paper, metal, canvas, posters, and notecards. If you see an image you love and would like it on a coffee mug or other type of products, please inquire.
