Durfee Selling 2020 Calendar

Vintage diesel locomotives and fallen flags highlight the 2020 Railroading Calendar being offered by sale by Akron photographer Roger Durfee.

Issued via his Digital Durf Photography business, the calendar features images made by Roger largely but not exclusively in Northeast Ohio.

Among the railroads represented are Amtrak; Conrail; Erie Lackawanna; Santa Fe; Missouri-Kansas-Texas; Gulf, Mobile & Ohio; Toledo, Peoria & Western; Baltimore & Ohio; Western Maryland; Lehigh Valley; Ohi-Rail; Chicago & North Western; Chessie System; Illinois Central Gulf; Seaboard Coast Line; Southern; Soo Line; Monongahela; Ontario Northland; Penn Central; and Norfolk & Western.

Many of the aforementioned roads are represented as “heritage” power that still wore its original colors and markings after its owners was merged into another railroad, most notably Conrail and the Chessie System.

Each month has a feature photo and two to three smaller photographs.

The calendar costs $10 if purchased in person from Roger and $12 is ordered by mail. To order a copy of the calendar contact Roger at rad6573@hotmail.com

The calendar was arranged with the assistance of graphic artist Keith Adams and printed by Ron Smith Printing.

The cover image shown above portrays Amtrak’s westbound Lake Shore Limited at the Cleveland station as a Conrail train waits for a signal. In the background behind SDP40F No. 604 and an E unit is the former Cleveland Municipal Stadium.
