April 29, 2017 - Chapter Meeting
Modelers Meeting: “Pennsy Steam Locomotives”
Discussion topic covered any steam locomotive classes in PRR service. Attendees displayed and spoke about their scale models.
Feature Presentation: “Creative Commissions”
Presenter Michael Froio (Michael Froio Photography), a professional photographer, and Associate Professor at Drexel University, shared his “Creative Commissions” work with the Chapter membership and guests. Michael discussed how his original works (“From the Mainline: A Contemporary Survey of the Pennsylvania Railroad”) lead to commissioned work for contemporary railroads undertaking major infrastructure improvement projects. Michael further discussed the technical challenges, equipment, and logistics of the location-based work. Through previously unreleased images, videos and plenty of behind the scenes views, the presentation illustrated what was required to accomplish a cohesive and creative documentation of classic large-scale railroad engineering projects.
