DOUG COLDIRON's Collection
Welcome to DOUG COLDIRON's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of DOUG COLDIRON.  

This is my collection of photos... taken from around home in Bristol, VA and around the country.  I'm an over-the-road truck driver and always keep my camera handy for a quick shot! 

My mom was a telegraph operator on the N&W from '51-'71, on the Radford Div.  My step-dad was with the N&W from the '40s til the '80s, as an engineer, running the J's and K's on steam passenger trains.  Then Road-foreman-engines at Rook Yard in Pgh.Pa.  As a kid we moved from Bristol,Va to Roanoke, to Pittsburgh.  I guess I was kind of a "rail-brat"!
