AMTRAK TOP SHOTS  This is a collection of around 1200 of the best images i have found of Amtrak trains and stations.. I have invited these photos from individual photographers on Flickr …. There are some fine Images  in here if you have time to look :With Thanks Loco Steve….

Thanks to all the photographers that have posted photos for these sites on Flickr –  Hope you enjoy the images ….. Steve

( I would like to point out that this is a personal project and has no affiliation with Amtrak or Flickr.Although .. I do Like Riding Amtrak Trains and spend lots of time on Flickr … The linked groups were all started and managed by myself and i have contributed to most of the groups myself with the exception of Amtrak Top Shots …..  I hope you all enjoy the photos .. The main reason for these pages is for people to have a visual image collection  –  where they can find where they took photos from ‘ If they have forgotten ‘ – Or to relive their trips – or to see where they might like to go and visit..  There may be more groups in the future but it has taken two years to get this together  )
