John Troxler won first prize in the black-and-white category with this shot on a westbound NKP 765. He perfectly captured a young boy’s attention as it passes a Metra Employee Open House shuttle train during the afternoon of June 17, 2017 near the Chicago 47th Street Metra station.
Steven Chen took first prize in the color category with this shot of a CSX worker fixing the frog at the northeast end of Emory siding just outside of Atlanta, on January 29, 2019. Maintaining the essentials of railroading – the frog which connects the rails of sidings and main lines together – compose a humanistic side of railroad life.
