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.
