In the early 1970’s, Robert was driving and out and about. He started at the local rail yard and other nearby locations. Armed with a Kodak Super 8 Movie Camera, a Polaroid Land camera and a small 110 Instamatic, he started photographing trains. The majority of this program will be a large amount of action at rail yards, such as Pit Yard – Hamilton Ohio, Armco and WR Tower at New River in New Miami Ohio, Storrs and Gest St. Yards – Cincinnati, and Sharon Yard – Sharonville Ohio, plus some mainline running. Chessie GM50 in snow, Chessie in 1977 by Glendale, Penn Central, Southern, and DT&I through Sharon Yard, also see the American Freedom Train leaving Cincinnati on a rainy day. Lots of classic train action in and around Cincinnati and Hamilton, OH!
