Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Joel Armstrong.
Welcome to my page. These are mostly shots, that I took with various slide film, from my automatic Nicon Zoom Touch 470. The majority of these shots, were taken back in 1995 through 2002. I know some of my shots have poor exposure. My little Nicon camera, didn't care much for any speed of slide film. Unless it was a, "not a cloud in the sky kinda day." But back then I didn't care. I always thought. "A poor shot is better than no shot!!!!"
In my youth, I loved the FRISCO, and that love has stuck with me ever since. And since Tulsa, Oklahoma is my berth place. A key Frisco town, (still very important to BNSF too) it was natural to enjoy the sound of Frisco's famous Leslie SuperTyfon S-5T's!!! Most of my shots are from Tulsa's Cherokee Yard, and surrounding areas. Showing the creation of the BNSF merger. Lot's of pure BN, and Santa Fe. As well a visit from Frisco 1522. So go ahead and take a look. Go back in time, and see some trains the way, "it was". Through the lens of an automatic camera. Thanks Joel
