A new photography exhibit opened February 3, 2018, featuring the railroad photography of David Plowden, a well-known American photographer that created iconic images of the nation’s railroads. His fascination with railroads was the root of his life’s work as a photographer. Plowden went on to create a vast body of work documenting the railroad environment. He is best known to railroad enthusiasts and railfans for his images of steam locomotives, yet he has approached nearly every facet of railroading.
The Center for Railroad Photography & Art (www.railphoto-art.org), David Plowden, and the National Railroad Museum have collaborated to present this exhibition.
