Program: Jim Kleeman
A Nevada Northern Railway Photographers’ Weekend
When Kennicott Copper walked away from the railroad in 1983 it left behind the relics of a turn-of-the-century rail operation that started in 1905. The railroad is now on the National Register of Historic Places and looks much the same as it did 100 years ago. Steam powered trains run daily and their newest motive power is an Alco RS-3. We hope you'll enjoy the ride!
Jim Kleeman, who grew up in Chicago watching Milwaukee Road streamliners behind the backstop while playing sandlot baseball. He rode the North Shore downtown, and the Chicago Transit Authority to Wrigley Field. He and his father rode behind the CB&Q 4960 and 5632 on fan trips in the 1960s. Jim was a model railroader in high school and college. Then medical school and marriage put the hobby on hold. His interest in railroading was rekindled after moving east and riding the Chessie Steam Special in 1977. Following in his father's footsteps, Jim bought a Canon AE-1 and started shooting Kodachrome slides. In 2004, he made the leap to digital photography and has never turned back. He takes two or three week-long railfan trips each year and has visited all 50 states.
