The Diesel Shop's 25th Year

Serving The Railfan Community (1994-2019)

Greetings! Our 25th anniversary celebration continues throughout the month of June. However, we've run out of 25th anniversary locomotive photos and have opted for a slightly different approach. From this point forward, we'll feature "front cover" images of locomotives 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 and the "Remember When" segments. 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.
