New Train Photos Added to Our Online Collection

This morning I have added a number of new train and trolley photos to our online Flickr collection. The original slides, with the exception of 4, were taken by Al Kalmbach, the founder of Kalmbach Publishing in Wisconsin. Kalmbach publishing is the producer of Trains magazine and Model Railroader magazine. Blackhawk films out of Davenport Iowa duplicated the original slides and sold them to collectors. Kalmbach photographed these primarily during the 50’s and early 60’s.

We have several thousand slides and photos in our collection and as time permits I will add them online.

As most of you know we have developed a new website for www.hobby1.com . Our old website had a link to some images from our train photo collection (accumulation) and we added to that link additional images as we had time. We since the old website is no longer available I have begun to place the photos up on a Flickr site for the store. Here is a link to that site:

Eventually, I will get all of this under control and learn how to put buttons up for things like this. And we will be adding additional images from the collection on a regular basis now. So take a minute and enjoy some of these.

By the way, for all of our RC and Model customers, we have not forgotten you. We are working on some posts that will have an interest for you.
