Creator Description George Hamlin has been taking railroad photographs since 1956. Beginning with a Kodak "Brownie," he progressed to 35mm in 1964 with the acquisition of an Argus C-3 "Brick." Photographing primarily in black and white until 1970, George then switched to color and Nikon cameras, first with slides and now with digital. His work has been published in a number of rail-oriented periodicals and books, beginning with Trains magazine in 1963. He also has been photographing airliners since the late 1960s, and contributes to both the trade and hobby press in this field, as well. George lives in northern Virginia where he works as an aviation/transportation consultant.
