Runner-up: To appreciate the daunting task of the transcontinental railroad builders, you need only go west to Wyoming. The modern Union Pacific Railroad remains tested by the same vast landscape that challenged the pioneers. In a scene repeated for 150 years, a manifest train climbs out of Rock River, on May 12, 2019.


In the spirit of the myriad Transcontinental Railroad 150th anniversary celebrations, the theme for Trains photo contest was “Go West!” So with that motif, 94 photographers sent a total of 231 images for the 2019 Trains Photo Contest. Check out the eight winners!
