Railroad  Photography by Jim Springer
     Welcome to my Train and Railroad Photography website!  I have been photographing trains for over 23 years, and I wish it was a lot longer!  Both my grandfathers and my father worked on the Railroad, the late, great, Pennsylvania.  My father also worked for Penn Central and Conrail.  My father and his father worked out of Youngwood, PA, at one time a major yard on the PRR.  How I wish I had taken an interest in the railroad while growing up just a couple blocks away!  In the last 10 years, I have taken numerous train photos around much of the USA and a few in Canada.  I was fortunate to have a job that took me around much of the USA, and I used every moment of free time to photograph the local railroads.  I have had some exposure in railfan magazines, such as the late Railnews, Trains, The Railroad Press, and CTC Board.  (If you admire fine railfan photography, CTC Board is the best there is, in my opinion!)
      Please look over my assembled photos, and feel free to e-mail me at with any comments, questions, or just to say Hi!  This site is still under construction, so please check back every few days to a week or so, as I will be adding to and changing the photos presented.  Click on the photo gallery you wish to enter.
