Greetings! Our 25th anniversary celebration continues throughout the month of September. As stated previously, we ran out of 25th anniversary locomotive photos and opted for a slightly different approach. Each month, we'll feature a "front cover" image of a locomotive with the number "25" or "2500," they'll be action as well as static shots. You'll probably recognize the names of some of the photographers. Their help is certainly appreciated. In addition to front cover photos, there will be an on-going effort to continue the development of brief photo essays for the "Yesterday's Hot Spots" series, the "Remember When" segments, and alternatively the "Critter Notebook." We view these features as a means of providing useful information that helps expand the knowledge base, strengthen a historical perspective and generally broaden the railfan experience.
