Time Line - A Life Chasing Trains

These are some favorites selected to represent the various periods in my over 50 year photographic odyssey.




The Hotel Ferrocarril at Zacapa.  This was part of the station complex , and provided both a lunch room for through Puerto Barrios-Guatemala City passengers as well as a hotel for passengers waiting for the overnight connection to the train to San Salvador.  Staying at the hotel was described by one wag as "like spending the night in a yard office" since the upstairs veranda overlooked the yard.  The hotel obviously had not been painted in years but was clean and had a decent dining room and bar.
