Joe Snider Photo Gallery
I am a native born Coloradoan growing up in Denver. I am a US Army veteran having served in the Combat Engineers. My initial career was with the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad where I worked for seven years in the Maintenance of Way and Mechanical Departments. After that I worked in the diesel generator and industrial engine area. I finished my work career in HVAC.
I have have been a life long railfan and was greatly influenced by my mother who loved train travel and steam power. She had a uncle who was a famous Mechanical Department official with the Union Pacific. I have photographed trains in at least 18 states and the countries of England, France, and Japan. I have Been photographing trains since 1956. I have had pictures in Trains, Railfan & Railroad, CTC Board, and the publications of the UP Historical Society and of the Friends of the Burlington Northern RR.
My wife's family is from the Columbus, Ohio area; and I have been photographing Ohio railroading since 1989. I have had two Ohio Shots published in Railfan. One at Scioto Tower and one east of Newark on the Ohio Central.
