Don Woods to Present ARRC Nov. 22 Program

The Akron Railroad Club will hold its November meeting on Friday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. at the New Horizons Christian Church at 290 Darrow Road in Akron.

Don Woods will present a slide show of images that he made while chasing Union Pacific’s Big Boy steam locomotive last May.

Don is a veteran photographer who has photographed trains across North America.

Last spring he traveled 5,500 miles over two weeks to catch the Big Boy in Wyoming and Utah as well as other Western railroad operations.

Accompanied by fellow ARRC member Dave Shepherd, Don and Dave experienced a wide range of conditions from sunshine to snow.

In addition to the Big Boy, Don will also show images of Amtrak’s California Zephyr, including photographs made aboard the train, which he and Dave rode from Salt Lake City to Denver.
