    Default NMRA News

    Below is a copy of a statement from the latest NMRA InfoNet news blast which down the road may be of great interest to anyone wanting Frisco photos because of the photographers involved.

    "Because the NMRA's Online Archives has been such a rousing success, several prominent photographers and collectors have begun to donate portions of their collections to the NMRA. The first is noted author/photographer Louis A. Marre, who's donated hundreds of large-format negatives of many subjects. Gregory Sommers has also donated a large collection of freight car slides, and David Lange has donated a large number of scanned images from the collection of the late Jim Morris. Watch for these exciting additions to the NMRA Online Archives in the near future. Hopefully continued donations to The Diamond Club will cover the cost of scanning and preparing the images."

    Richard and Bob didn't point out that anyone can do some searching of what's currently available on the NMRA archive. Tens if not hundreds of thousands of images will eventually be there if the Diamond Club keeps supporting it. High quality reproductions are/will be available.
