Anyone remember this?
 
Several years ago, someone referenced a lesser-known collection of full screen vintage diesel photos, probably on Flickr. I can't find the link either here or on my computer. Anyone recall who it might be?

That's quite vague but heres a link I think everyone, yourself included, might enjoy regardless of whether or note this is the photographer you are refering to:

Thanks, Mitch. Neither seems to be the one in question, but both these gentlemen have some worthy shots to look over.
Maybe I can find it by starting with my forum join date (unless it was in that massive thread that admin deleted) :confused:

Try first-out (Todd Novak). He had a large vintage collection, including some of Bob Malinowski's killer shots.

Todd definitely has some choice stuff posted. I "followed" his collection some time ago.

The ones I'm looking for were pretty much uncropped and uncorrected. Maybe I bookmarked the location (among a zillion other places!).

If I come across anything like that as I expand my horizons in Flickr, I'll let you know. In the meantime, you may want to check out Mel Patrick, whose stuff is sublime. Also, Hal Reiser, a contemporary of mine who has a lot of nice northeast, especially D&H, material.

You may be looking for James E. Humbert. His collection meets your description.

WOW! Super rare gems there. Did you look at his favorites? Nearly as good as his own.

I thought he was the one from the old forum post at first, but maybe not. The ones from that were 4000 or 5000 x whatever, and bits of the slide mounts were showing.

Regardless, thanks for the clue!

Found it!

Not as many oldies as I hoped for, but worth seeing.

By the way, these are perfect examples of photos that searches won't find! No railroad name, no builder, no model, few tags. :roll:

You may also want to check out Bill Raia - lots of vintage stuff, much of it pristine.

Another treasure trove on Flickr:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/lf14515/

Pennsy electrics, NYC steam, New York City Els and trolleys, and more I didn't get to.

Somehow this gentleman has only acquired 25 followers in 12 years.

Good stuff. He has 26 now.
