Here are some photos that were taken in the 1960s by Bill Waller ( He has posted them in the '' newsgroup, which is where I found them. He has graciously allowed me to put them up here for your enjoyment.

    These are some notes on the photos from Bill:

    "I took the photos in this series during one of the Winter Spectaculars in the late 60's (I think). I do not know, at this time how many of the pictures are worth scanning, but I will be working at it for a while.

They are all B&W. They were shot using an EXA 35mm camera with a 35mm wide angle lens on Kodak Tri-X (ASA400). The weather that weekend was lousy."

"There are two other Sites that I am aware of with EBT photos:"

    "Over the years, I have taken many photographs of trains and rail related subjects. Although this is fine for me, without a way to share the work, it all seemed kind of pointless. In recent years, I would visit rail sites without taking a camera. Then along comes the Internet. Now, I CAN share with others."
