Default RP.net's next generation.

In Willig's 'Bad Name' thread, AB2 posted a couple of shots with some little tikes getting some of their 1st experiences of railroading/railfanning. Thought it would be neat to start a thread to showcase some of our own shots showing RP's next generation of contributers.

This is actually my 1st shot (by photo date) on RP. I don't know who the child is, but couldn't resist taking the shot.

It's a sticker designating the unit as one of CP Rail's heritage fleet.

Taken in Cass in the month of October 1991.



The same engine 17 years later, but the boy is now behind the camera.

Didn't even notice this until I was ready to trash the picture. This is actually a small crop of the overall image:

The shot of you must be like going 'Back To The Future'

It's powered by steam, Marty!

Thanks, J. I knew that there was another one that I was looking for, but I couldn't remember whose shot it was to find it until now.

I hope the young man has retained his interest in railroads, even if Thomas no longer appeals.

Not RP material, but I snapped this little chap and his mother in Northern Spain a couple of years ago

First post - Hope I'm doing this right! We have the blessing of living on a dead end street which runs up to the railroad. In fact our home is the second from the end so we have gotten to have many hours of fun watching trains go by. I will post some nice pics in the future to share with the community here! Here is my son's first time riding a train - even if it's a small one!

I'm 13, so I technically could be considered next generation even though I have some stuff here and on many other sites too...

Afraid not You're already a railfan. Now if you have something from the way-back vault like Walter, let's see it.

And this attachment in which I thought the content might be enough to overlook the high sun which isn't THAT bad.

What can I say? I like children (and well composed adults) in train photos. Check my favorites in my photo profile.
