Welcome to the photos taken by Harold Hodnett hosted by RR Pictures Archives! I have several thousand photos from the past many years taken in the Southeast United States, primarily in my home state of North Carolina. I started photographing trains in the mid-1980's and have recently started scanning my old negatives and will be posting those photos as well. It was a great time to photograph trains: Southern had just merged with Norfolk and Western, and Seaboard System was about to merge with Chessie System.
Note that all of the photos that appear to be taken on railroad property were done so WITH PERMISSION. This was much easily accomplished years ago before liability, safety, and terrorism concerns entered our world.
