Trains Photo Contest 2024: Power

Trains Photo Contest 2024: Power

Power is a concept that applies to many aspects of railroading. You may immediately think of something strong, large and making a great deal of noise like a Big Boy rumbling over Sherman Hill or a set of diesels pulling a long freight up a steep Appalachian grade. However, power can be represented in many ways on the railroad. High speed passenger rail, locomotives slogging through a blizzard, a local trainmaster providing oversight are just a few examples of how the concept of power might be illustrated in a photograph. This year Trains and the NRHS are looking for your photographs that show how you interpret power on the railroad. Any era or type of railroading is acceptable.

As always, you can illustrate the theme however you like. We are seeking the most creative illustrations of power. Although examples are given here, these are far from the only ways power appears on the railroads. Find your illustration of power, but be ready to explain.

Photographs can be taken recently or decades ago as power has been a part of railroading since its beginning. Please submit no more than three high-resolution images (3,000 pixels on the longest edge). Do not alter your images beyond minor color corrections, burning, dodging and levels adjustments. Send JPEGs to [email protected] no later than June 1, 2024. Please include your full name and phone number. We do not accept mailed submissions.

Winners will be announced in the November 2024 issue of Trains.
