Rusted Rail Images by Gene Bowker Sharing stories one image at a time.
Preserving the memories:
When you leave the Interstate and take the time to explore the backroads of America, images jump out at you which you'd never see at 70 miles per hour.
The relics of the past are quickly fading away. If we don't take the time to capture them today, they may be gone the next time you pass this way.
Capturing and creating these images allows me to share with you the stories of my mind. I enjoy the process of taking a digital photograph and transforming it into an image which conveys the message that I want it to share. This process is my own artistic twist on what the camera captures.
Railroads have always held a special place in my heart. I've always been a railfan and enjoy spending time along the tracks watching trains roll by.
The history of the US railroads is of particular interest to me and I try to find locations where that past is preserved and share it with you here.
I also enjoy capturing modern day railroading throughout the Southeastern United States with a particular focus on the Norfolk Southern, CSX, AMTRAK, and the various short-line railroads which still operate.

Most of the images shared are available for purchase as affordable prints and are professionally printed and delivered directly to your home or office. The proceeds help offset the cost of hosting this website.
