Creator Description John F. Bjorklund, born in 1939, grew up around the Northern Pacific Railroad. His father, Walter, was a division engineer whose frequent division shifts and engineering assignments allowed John to absorb, learn and enjoy most of the Northern Pacific in the west. Railroading influence also flowed from his motherís side of the family, as Johnís maternal grandfather was Frederick Shaw, an author of railroad books including Little Railways of the World. Following college, John worked for the Ford Motor Company and eventually retired from the corporate level of rail logistics. He started photography in the late 60s and made it a point to cover the disappearing aspects of railroading. Through his meticulous attention to detail, he left an immaculate photography collection, striking for its content and creativity, as well as its accessibility.
