Thanks for posting.  What a great career.  It sounded like he followed his passion.

Love his work. Have "The Call of Trains." He certainly will be missed, and oft remembered.

Had a chance meeting with Jim back in the mid 90's on the B&M at Rockingham jct. Newfields NH.
Really nice pleasant and down to earth guy to chat with. I will always remember that.

The Lords house just got some nice pictures on the walls!!!
Rest in Peace Jim.  :(

Jim was very helpful when I was working on my Philip Hastings book. Jim provided photos of Phil Hastings for the book. They did trips together in the 1950s. I got to go railfanning with Jim at Rockville bridge a few years ago.

He will be missed but he left us a great legacy of photos.
