I enjoy photography and a recent trip to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, WI has led me to try my hand at railroad photogrphy. This morning I went out and was lucky enough to photograph three trains in about two hours. Since I am more of a photographer than a railfanner I don't know how to identify the locomotives. I don't know the difference between and EMD and GE let alone the difference between an EMD SD60 and an EMD SD60I. When submitting photos to this site leaving the ID blank is not an option. Can anyone help me? Should I choose Other and then enter "unknown"? Is there a web site that would help me identify the trains in my area?
