Twenty-twenty has been the most significant period in Atlantic Northeast railroading since the Conrail breakup in 1999. Pan Am Railways and Central Maine & Quebec were sold, expecting to be incorporated whole into Class I trunk routes. The historic Hoosac Tunnel collapsed, diverting half of the mainline traffic for 53 days. The Coronavirus pandemic threatened carloads and crews. Riders abandoned passenger routes. Strikes and protests forced mid-Winter workarounds. And a decade of global infrastructure work finally delivered a container bonanza to our ports.

Share your Passion with a Useful Keepsake Gift

Kevin Burkholder’s photographic artistry is admired throughout the region, as is his relentless quest to be in just the right spot at just the right time (and then often waiting hours for just the right train to show up). Each of the huge 20″ x 12.75″ images (PLUS the additional 20″ x 25″ BONUS double spread) represents a significant railroading moment, explicated by a concise caption relating the what, where, when, why, and how. Each page will captivate you all month long.

Featured in the calendar are CMQ, PAR, NS, NEGS, BKRR, GRYR, NECR, CN, VRS, CP, and CSRR trains caught in varied moments: splendid daytime and eerie twilight; kissing the cow-catcher and hovering high above; Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. The double-size BONUS spread captures it all in a single, breathtaking shot.
