RailGiants Train Museum is proud to announce our 2018 Night Photo Shoot. Professional railroad photographer Steve Crise is on hand to assist with getting the perfect shot and staging this unique event. Special lighting, smoke generators, models, and props will be here to simulate vintage memories of steam operation for 4-12-2 Union Pacific No. 9000 (built in 1926), and Santa Fe drover's caboose No. 1314 (built in 1923).

Our original Night Photo Shoot in 2013 was a sell-out, resulting in many famous steam images of Union Pacific "Big Boy" No. 4014 before departing Southern California. In past years, our starring locomotives and rolling stock were seen world-wide.
These classic images from past summers' Night Photo Shoots are timeless.


Participants are requested to bring tripods to steady their cameras for required exposure times. Cameras with adjustable shutter and aperture times are recommended, rather than point-and-shoot or phone cameras. Digital and film cameras are welcome, and a cable release is a desirable accessory.

Steve Crise is available to advise participants and recommend techniques and exposure times.

Light refreshments will be served.

To secure your attendance, purchase tickets on-line with PayPal from your PayPal account or major credit card.
