Welcome to Franklin Campbell's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Franklin Campbell.  

Hey everyone,

Welcome to my page! I am new to railfanning. I just started photographing trains a few months ago and it has really improved over these past months. I have grown particularly fond of the EMD SW-1. I know this is all over the place. I live in Chicago, but I visit Peoria frequently to photograph trains as well.
