Welcome to Vern Wigfield's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Vern Wigfield.  

As the son of a Station Agent I have never not known trains. When I got my first box camera in 1948 at age 17 I took this photo at Tara,Iowa while working as Agent there. I have been taking pictures ever since mostly from a Modeler's view. I worked for the M&StL, C&NW, Rio Grande, MN&S, SooLine and retired from the BN. The last 21 years of my career were as a Train Dispatcher. Enjoy the photos and please feel free to make comments and give feedback. Thanks

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!
