The Fall 2015 issue of the Center’s quarterly journal, Railroad Heritage, features an in-depth look at the first hundred years of rail art by accomplished collector Peter J.C. Mosse. Peter began collecting railroad paintings in 1980 and has since amassed some 150 original works, twenty-three of which are presented in stunning color in his twenty-two page article. The story is a must-read for anyone interested in railroads and the visual arts.
The issue also includes photoessays by renowned photographers Victor Hand and Charles McCreary. Hand offers a glimpse railroading in and around New York City in the 1960s and 1970s, while McCreary recounts growing up around trains in the Upper Midwest in the 1940s and 1950s. This issue also introduces a new column, “Out of the Archives,” edited by Jordan Radke, the Center’s archives manager. The first installment looks at organization and metadata for photography collections.
