I was fortunate to get a few photos in the last years of Rio Grande operations (which effectively cut off about 1992). At first all I owned was a 110 instamatic camera, but in March 1984 I was given a decent Minolta 35mm unit and the quality of photos improved immensely. I only wish I’d been able to shoot slides too.
Here is a sampling of my imagery from that period– passenger trains, freight trains, scenery, sites and such. I’ve also included a few scenes from the 1990s since they had not changed substantially from the formal Rio Grande era.
