These images demonstrate Bodine's pictorialist and modernist photographic eye for trains and railroads in motion and at rest. Bodine published four books, wrote articles, judged photographic Salons, won awards from all over the world, lectured across northeast America, and held down a full-time job at a major metropolitan newspaper. This is the fourth Bodine picture book assembled by his daughter, Jennifer. Their previous collaborations are Bodine's Chesapeake Bay Country, Bodine's City, and Bodine's Industry.

A. Aubrey Bodine devoted his life to elevating photography to an art form. Called a pictorialist, he photographed people, city, rural, and maritime scenes and trains. Jennifer B. Bodine, Esq., owns and operates, selling digitally restored A. Aubrey Bodine note cards and reprints.
