Default 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?

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)

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.

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.
