I attended NRHS RailCamp West at the Nevada Northern Railway in Ely, Nevada this year, and then rode 1.5K mi. back to my house by several railroad lines including Union Pacific, Durango & Silverton, Cumbres & Toltec, BNSF Railway, West Texas & Lubbock, Gulf, Colorado, & San Saba, and the Austin Area Terminal Railroad.

Sadly the only railroads I have pictures of are the NNRy, UP, C&TS, BNSF, and the AUAR :sad: :sad: .
