Train Photos & Videos

(Click on each photo to take you to the page where there are more photos from the same layout.)

Displaying model train photos is probably the most exciting section of this entire website.

This is the place where we can show off and brag about the great work that we’ve done and show other model railroaders what we’ve been up to.

Also, we can be inspired by what others have done and strive to make our own layouts even better as a result.

Send in Your Photos

I would like to use this section as a place where you can submit your own train pictures for all of us model railroaders to enjoy. Just use the form at the bottom of this page to send your individual photos. I will either post the photos, or a link to the photos, on this page along with your descriptions. (I won't post your email address.)

If you would rather not use the form at the bottom of the page, you can just send in your photos as an email attachment to  Make sure you include your name, email address, and general location and tell us a few words or a story about the photos.

The photos will then show up either on this page or as a link from this page. I will add more gallery pages as needed.

If you would like to show off your layout (or even a small section of it), on the Showcase page, click here. To see the showcase layouts that have been entered so far, click here. There are lots of photos of model railroads on these Showcase pages.

Also, if you like rail fanning and have some photos that you have taken of prototypical trains or railroad equipment, please feel free to send those in as well.

My Layout Photos

The following photos are scenes taken from my own freelanced N scale layout based on the Pocahontas Roads in the Appalachian Mountains circa 1948-1952 when steam was still going strong. My version of the prototype is called "Pokie Roads" and serves as a division of my newly expanded larger layout, now called the Blue Ridge and Southern. You have already seen a smattering of these photos used to illustrate other pages on this site; but here are several of them all together in one slideshow...

Even more BR&S photos here...
