Wow ~ When a guy wants to play with his trains, it's maddening when the big boys won't let you! Fortunately, here at the Western History and Genealogy Department, we have enough train and railroad materials for everybody! Our "Railroads in the American West" and our "Western History Railroading Resources" guides will familiarize you with all of our various resources, or you can just search our Digital Collections for "railroads," "locomotive," "depot," or other similar terms to see some of the thousands of railroad photos in our collection. Or, to take it in another direction, explore this tag: "tag:kids" to see some selected images of children. Enjoy the gallery linked below for some selected railroad favorites, and as always, it's useful to use the "search" tool with the magnifying glass at the top right to see what's available on the ever growing Western History and Genealogy website.
"Wow Photo Wednesday" celebrates photographs in the Denver Public Library's Digital Collections that have "The Wow Factor" and that highlight the myriad delightful nuggets in our database.
