About Peter Newman


My passion for trains came through osmosis - the mainline of the CPR ran through our backyard in Toronto. My mother used to complain that the trains made our house rumble - I thought it was really neat! I loved watching the diesels struggle up the grade towards Agincourt Yard. And then one day everything changed... I saw CPR 4-6-0, #1057, steam past! My interest in trains has introduced me to other passions, including photography and model railroading. I think the best part, however, has been meeting all of the wonderful railway enthusiasts along the way - many who became friends and even mentors in my life. Most of my railway photographs were taken between 1975 and 1979. My camera was the Pentax K1000 - most of my images were taken in black and white. To keep costs low, the films were processed in my own darkroom. I hope you'll enjoy the images!
