Welcome to John Hill's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of John Hill.  

I started shooting railfan photos as a kid about 1968, and continued until about 1989. About 2005 I got my first digital camera, which got me fired up to take pictures again. Most of my shots are in the Twin Cities Minnesota area, plus a few trips to outstate MN and even fewer trips to other states and Canada.

Photos dated in the 1970s or 1990s were scanned from slides or negatives. Actual dates were not recorded but are estimated from processing dates stamped on the slides. Photos from the 2000s and beyond are digital and use the date stamp from the camera.

 
Corrections or other commentary are always welcome. Thanks for indulging.


You may browse my collection of pictures via the menu located on the left hand side of the page.  I hope you enjoy the collection and thanks for stopping by!
