Welcome to Rodney J. Sorensen's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Rodney J. Sorensen.  

Hello! I would like to personally welcome you to my railroad photography collection, web space kindly provided by the nice people at RRPictureArchives.Net. Living as I do out west, I photograph mostly Union Pacific motive power. However, I try to catch whatever foreign or eastern and southern motive power that I can . . . but as noted, living so close to the Union Pacific's Main Line Overland Route, my photography is by geographical location Union Pacific armor yellow. I have been actively taking railroad photographs for almost a year now and passively for many, many more. The recent progression and wonderful advances in digital photography renewed within me an interest in both railroading and photography again. This has allowed me to take my passion for photography and direct it toward railroading. What a wonderful fun hobby has come from this union of analog axle grease and digital CMOS sensors. I hope that you will be able to find among my photographs, something of interest for your personal modeling needs and or something that brings a smile of enjoyments remembered, perhaps in fun times gone by. I can tell you that I have enjoyed creating these photographs, my dear wife accompanies me on many of the 'shoots' and has even taken several of the shots included herein as well. Karole knows her EMD's GE's Patches & ACe's as well as what has the new yellow safety stripe and why. She has been an invaluable asset to the collection and is known in local circles as the "Green River Goddess," all for good reason I can assure you. We both enjoy the low throbbing rumble of diesel's at idle, the pop, hiss and spit of the pop off valves. All of this can become quite addicting in a way, but is an acquired taste to be sure. We sometimes digitally record with one of our iPod, the sounds of trains at rest as well as passing freights, saving the sounds for those days we can not get out into the field for a personal fix. It is easy to see how this combination of hobbies can become addicting in its own way and such a fun part of our lives. Please have fun but slow down enough to smell the burnt diesel fuel, to enjoy the time you spend here during your visit(s). Oh, one last thing, I have one favor to request of you . . . should you run into a typo or other such error or mistake in my collection of photographs, please let me know so that I can correct it post haste and keep things in order and on track, so to speak, as best I can. Thank you again so very much . . . Rodney J. Sorensen
