FEATURE PRESENTATION

LAST CALL - SELLING OUT SHORTLY

A RARE MILEAGE RAIL EXCURSION
RIDE THE RAILS over the Pennsylvania Railroad and Reading Railroad’s Shamokin Valley Branch that the ore trains traveled in the 1940s and 1950s!

Full Description / Brochure / Registration Form

Michael is a professional photographer, and Associate Professor at Drexel University and has been working on a long-term photographic project titled, “From the Mainline: A Contemporary Survey of the Pennsylvania Railroad.”

His work combines historical research with contemporary imagery to present a creative documentation of one of the most important railroads in American history.  Froio will discuss how his original works lead to commissioned work for contemporary railroads undertaking major infrastructure improvement projects. Michael will discuss 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 illustrates what was required to accomplish a cohesive and creative documentation of classic large-scale railroad engineering projects.
