Zenfolio | Joel Hawthorn's Railroad Photography | Transcon Holiday 2012 - Slideshow

Presented at GorgeRail 2013 in the Dalles, Oregon.  This travelog compilation features photography from the Southwestern deserts, when Joel had the pleasure of traveling with a group of railfan friends who know the area. Taken over the past year during three trips to the area, Joel and friends visited not just Cajon to Crookton to Dalies along the busy BNSF transcontinental route, but also traveled along the Apache Railroad and Copper Basin Railroad short-lines. In the last part of the show Drew Mitchem joins Joel for a visit to Ciennega Bridge, Benson and then Shawmut along the UP's Gila Sub (Sunset Route) in Arizona in November 2012.
