I discovered the PH&D with a forgotten cohort in July of 1982. In December of 1984, the PH&D was purchased by CSX.

I was shooting Kodachrome 64 - each slide cost me just shy of a quarter for film, postage and processing. I was making $4-5 dollars an hour through various summer enterprises. And I lived over 300 miles away. 30+ years later, I wish I'd shot more... I have too many memories of the people that made the railroad what it was, and too few pictures of them.

I still keep in touch with a couple former employees. Doesn't seem like 30 years ago...
