John Cochener's Collection
Welcome to John Cochener's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of John Cochener.  

I am fortunate to live at a vantage point overlooking the main North-South rail line along the U.S. east coast. I see CSX, Amtrak, and VRE trains at this location in Crystal City. I could easily post hundreds of duplicate photos daily. What I post are the more unusual sights that I can catch. Sometimes the photo opportunity passes by the time I can turn on the camera. For example, it took nearly 2 years and four "too-far/bad angle" or "obscured number" situations to finally get a clear photo of Amtrk #1. I also overlook National Airport and occasionally obtain some unusual aircraft photos. Some photos contain both trains and planes. My albums are on the RIGHT side of this page contrary to the boilerplate directions below. The LEFT side is a database function. Thanks for looking.

You may browse my collection of pictures via the menu located on the left hand side of the page.  I hope you enjoy the collection and thanks for stopping by!
