George Poulos's Collection
Welcome to George Poulos's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of George Poulos.  

  • I  Have been railfanning pretty much all my life but in 1986 I suddenly realized that I could take pictures of trains! Influenced by a copy of Don Ball's "America's Railroads, the Second Generation" & "Railroad and Railfan Magazine" I bought a Nikon DSLR
  • My favorite spot has always been LaVergne at the west end of BN's Cicero Yard, but I ranged over the Western Suburbs and Southwest Side of Chicago. 
  • I shot around 200 rolls of film between 12/86 and 8/99. 
  • I caught a lot of cool pre-megamerger action but I have regrets that I missed a lot of opportunities! 
  • I re-discovered rail fan photography in November of 2009 and bought a DSLR
  • Taking train pics is my favorite way to relax and have fun.
  • I love looking at other photographers work as well!
  • Hope you enjoy my shots!!!
