It’s part two of Blair Kooistra month here on the ‘ole AML Network, a resident of Fort Worth, Texas, Blair has made outstanding contributions to the photographic interpretation of North America's railroading. He’s photographed railroads extensively since high school and his work has been widely published, with 15 articles in the Trains magazine index and he was recognized in its 50th anniversary issue (November 1990).
He remains active as a photographer, concentrating on shortlines and heritage railroading and traveled twice to Australia where there is still access to facilities and railroaders.
“Overall Kooistra’s work is among the most significant railroad photography of the post-steam era,” writes Scott Lothes, president of the Center for Railroad Photography & Art
