Railfans, Modelers and Everyone who enjoys great railroad photography:


We are offering prints made from our slide collection printed on high quality ink jet printers.

Note: The old Epson 870 has been replaced with a Canon Pixma iP6600D - a far better printer in my opinion. I have recently added a Canon Pro 9000 Mk II which can print up to 13x19 size prints.


You can see these photos at http://algomacentral.railfan.net


Slides from the above website are available in 8x10 and 4x6 (approx. size) prints. I also have a lot of roster shots taken over the last 50 years, too many to post here, so if you are looking for a shot of a certain locomotive or railroad, just ask and I may have it. This would be very handy for modeling a specific engine, railroad or era. Most of the slides are on a database, so I should be able to find them quickly.

 We also will scan your own slides onto CD-ROM or DVD disks. Info here.


NEW! Here are some non-railroad (!) photos I've taken years and years ago around Upper Michigan and Northern Ontario, including some of Michigan Tech taken in the late 1960's.

As time and ambition permits, I will also add some Arizona photos, mostly of desert scenery and old ghost towns.

DVD Videos from my collection of Super VHS camcorder tapes.....

Update...the DVD project has been put on hold indefinitely account piracy concerns. While copying of video tapes was not a big deal (account the degradation of VHS copies generation to generation) it is of course very easy to make perfect copies of un-protected (and protected) DVD's. The cost of licensing a copy prevention program (i.e. Macrovision or similar) is way too high for a project like this account the likely very small number of sales! Sorry....but that is the reality these days.
