Default Steam, Steel and Strobes Scholarship (2015)

RailPictures.net is pleased once again this year to help spread the word about a unique opportunity available to young adults to attend the Nevada Northern Railway Museum's winter photography sessions free of charge.

For the fifth year the Nevada Northern Railway Museum is offering a special Steam, Steel, and Strobes Scholarship to attend the railroad’s annual photo event to a participants age 18-30. The photographer selected will receive a free admittance to the event, a $500 stipend and will work with professional photographer Steve Crise during the February 2016 events. To apply, e-mail a proposal of no more than 250 words and three low-resolution images to Mark S. Bassett, Executive Director, director@nnry.com Entries must be received by December 12, 2015.

The Nevada Northern Railway Museum is making this opportunity available to encourage young adults to participate in an outstanding heritage railroading activity. The scholarship includes attendance at our annual photo shoot and $500 that can be used for travel to Ely. Steve Crise, a professional photographer, will mentor the winners. This is an outstanding opportunity to participate and learn about heritage railroading. There are two opportunities available – February 12-14 and February 19-21, 2016. An individual will be selected for both events.

I know Crise, and I don't think he ever shoots running trains with flash, just displayed ones. One of the these nights I might get out to Ely and shoot them on the roll. It's hard to find a steam operation that runs at night.

Hi Kent,

You are correct. Other than the moves to position the locomotives for a night static shot, and then put them away, they typically do not run trains at night during the annual NN Winter Photo Shoots.

That said, NN does occasionally run special event trains at night. There are also numerous tourist steam operations that run Polar Express / North Pole Express trains during the upcoming holiday season. Perhaps the most prolific operation doing that is Connecticut's Valley Railroad (Reporting mark VALE.) From mid-November until a few days after Christmas, the Valley Railroad runs 4 steam trains per night, 6 nights a week, plus an extended daytime schedule on the weekends. Two steam engines and two consists are in operation. To get an idea of what is possible, check out the work of local Photographer (and RP Contributor) Tom Nanos.
