Jim Ford's Collection
Welcome to Jim Ford's Railroad Picture Archives!

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

Most of my recent pictures were taken along the former B&O (now CSX) main line between Chicago and Baltimore.  Dolton Junction and Fostoria are favorite places. The photos from the 1970's are largely from the Chicago area and along the old GM&O line to Springfield.  Odds and Ends includes shots from other places on the CSX and lesser roads that were worth saving for one reason or another.

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!
