Introduction

Welcome!

I hope this is the first of many posts as I invite other photographers from the Flickr Albuquerque/Santa Fe Social Group and the Enchanted Lens club (along with other misc friends who have photographed the Rail Yards) to post their images along with their narratives  of the image of the Albuquerque Rail Yards.

It is my hope that this will be yet another vehicle to promote public awareness of the incredible  historical treasure that is in Albuquerque. It is a treasure that belongs not only to the city and the state, but, really to our country as it had a vital role in shaping the growth and commerce of the greater south west.

It is also my hope to bring attention to the Wheels Museum and their fundraising efforts. Without the museum, I am certain the the Rail Yards would've met up with a more certain 'death' had it not been for their efforts.

Here are some of my images of the Rail Yard:
