From all corners of the United States - New York to California and Illinois to Florida - as well as Asia and Europe, photographer and writer Michael T. Burkhart takes you along on his photo travels in 2013.
I'm a former newspaper reporter now working in marketing. I took my first railroad photo in 1988 at age 13, and have been behind a camera as a hobby ever since. In the past 25 years, more than 900 of my photos have appeared in the likes of Trains Magazine, Railpace Newsmagazine, The Railroad Press, Diesel Era, National Railway Historical Society Bulletin and Railfan & Railroad. I have a special interest in the history of Caribbean and sugar cane railroads, and have authoried pieces from the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. I currently serve as president of the Wilmington, Del. Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society.
