Welcome to Don Hummel, Jr.'s Railroad Picture Archives!

I spent some of my childhood in Delawarewithin viewing distance of both the Pennsylvaniaand B&O lines near Newark, DE, hence the interest in these Eastern lines and their successors.

I was fortunate enough to live within easy driving distance of:

  • CSX mainline from Harper's Ferry and Brunswick to Washington D.C.,
  • The Old B&O main line from Baltimore to Point of Rocks, MD.
  • The very beautiful B&O Railroad Museumat 900 W. Pratt St. in Baltimore,
  • The Western Maryland Railroad Historical Society's museum in Union Bridge, MD,
  • The Maryland Midland Railroad, based in Union Bridge, MD.
  • and the tourist line - Walkersville Southern based in Walkersville, MD.

until a few months ago and a job relocation forced a change of scenery. 

I am now in the Dallas area:

  • within 2 miles of BNSF line from Carrollton to Dallas 
  • short distance the Grapevine Vintage Railroad - a fun tourist line
  • driving distance away from Union Pacific lines near Denton.

Some model railroads that are noteworthy that I have enjoyed are:

  • Triangle and Western RR on Belair Rd., Northeast of Baltimore - nice permanent HO layout spanning Baltimore area, through mountain terrain, and into the steel mills of Pittsburgh.
  • Baltimore Society of Model Engineers on W. Saratoga St. in Baltimore with two large permanent layouts. One O guage and one HO - lots of trains, trolleys, multi-track operation. In existence for over 50 years.
  • Western Maryland Railway Historical Society's Modular Group's layout - set up at various shows and venues in the area - well done modules based on WM lines through Md, Va, WVa, and Pa.
  • Four County Society of Model Engineers - modular layout set up at various shows and venues in the area - very well done modules featuring Western Maryland, B & O, Chessie, CSX,Maryland Midland,Clinchfield, and the Pennsy.
