Rick Hoar's Collection
Welcome to Rick Hoar's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Rick Hoar.  

I hope that railfans will enjoy the photos I have posted here at RRPictureArchive.NET.  Some things to consider as you view:  I am not a professional photographer, you'll figure that out on your own.  I shoot the pics I like to view, mostly action shots with scenery involved.  I do not like roster shots, nor will I ever shoot the whole train.  I do like to shoot several different angles of the same train though.  I will never criticize anyones photos unless you're rabid about graffitti being an "art".  It's a crime and I don't care how much realism you subscribe to, it's trashing the railroads and making life difficult for the railfan.  If you think it's that cool, go tag your house or car. As for other shots though, lot's of folks shoot for different reasons than me.  I do accept criticism, but please be gentle.  If the comment is in poor taste I will delete it.  I post what I post as I believe the only bad photo of a train is the one missed.  I appreciate the work that the Huemmers put into this site and am grateful that they don't edit photos as 3/4 of mine probably wouldn't make the cut.  But again, a train is a train, I can look past the photo imperfections.

Thanks for viewing my pics, I hope you have enjoyed them.   Rick
