Railroad Photography, Noah's Railroad History! CSX Locomotive No. 5119 in Shenandoah Junction, WV

"CSX Locomotive No. 5119 in Shenandoah Junction, WV"
(C) Allen Pearson Photography
A favorite scene for me while railfanning in Shenandoah Junction, WV, is the locomotives coming around the "S" curve heading west! To me, and maybe I just need to get out more, it's an awesome experience to watch those huge machines roaring through town pulling their heavy loads to destinations unknown to me.

My interest in railroading is in railroad history and photography. When I was a young boy, I had an HO Scale model train layout. I didn't design it after any particular city, town, or landscape,  I just designed all the town as I wanted and had a few trains.

Today, I am starting a new series of railroad photography posts which will feature railroad history too. My dog Noah is my railfanning buddy most of the time when I go out, I am naming the posts "Noah's Railroad History!" The photography will feature my own work with a note about something that happened in the railroad world. The posts will not always be about what happened "that day in history" but about an event.

Noah's Railroad History: On January 1, 1800, the first successful non-condensing high-pressure stationary steam-engine was built by Oliver Evans. The engine was later used in the building of the first steam-powered boat.
