Welcome to Jim Vivian's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Jim Vivian.  

     Welcome! This site is mainly my early efforts with print film. I finally wised about around the mid-80's and began shooting Kodachrome exclusively. Most of the site so far is dedicated to my home roads at the time. (CNW, ICG, MILW, BN, and the occasional road trip to WI-SOO) Growing up in the extreme north-central area of IL, a south-bound jaunt of no more than 35 miles would put you on any of the first four roads mentioned. Gas was cheap and if nothing was moving anywhere, there was "ghost" railroading to be done. Hope you can enjoy these early efforts, as much as I did photographing them!   Happy Hunting, Jim 

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!
