Railroads of Montana 2022 12-Month Calendar
The Railroads of Montana calendars began in 1999/2000 when I first set out to share
my collection of Montana railroad images taken throughout the years.
Here is an excerpt of the "Railroads of Montana Story" from the back pages of the 2022 calendar.
"My earliest project was an 18-month 1999/2000 calendar. I was optimistic and had 1,000 copies printed -
I may have sold 150. I continued printing calendars thru 2002. From 1999 until about 2005 I wrote four booklets
and two book DVD’s. The book DVD’s were unique as they were meant to be read only from a PC -
that format only lasted for two publications. By 2006, the business end of self-publishing became clear -
it was too costly having hundreds of publications printed while selling only a meager few. In 2013 and 2014,
I printed spiral bound calendars from Staples. The finished product was unsatisfactory,
so the Railroads of Montana calendar and other publications went by the wayside".
There you have it - the history of the Railroads of Montana calendars.
New to this year's calendar are images from other photographers than myself.
The majority of photographs are mine, but included are a few from Jerry Quinn and Ed Lynch.
