Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum

We are pleased to present the photography of Dick Acton Sr.  Mr. Acton was a railfan who made numerous trips to Bradford in the 1950s to photograph the Pennsylvania Railroad.   Mr. Acton's pictures are now in the collection of railfan David Oroszi who has been kind enough to make them available to us.    Imagine standing next to Mr. Acton when he took these photos and being able to witness first-hand these scenes from Bradford's railroad history.   Bill Haines
