SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Winning photographs from the Center for Railroad Photography & Art’s 2016 John E. Gruber Creative Photography Awards Program will be displayed in a new exhibit at the California State Railroad Museum in April.

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are partnering with the Wisconsin-based organization to showcase railroad images from around the world. The exhibit will feature winning photographs from two separate categories within the annual contest.

Top honors in the group’s “most evocative” category includes images from photographers in Germany, Slovenia, and the United States depicting dramatic and other abstract railroad scenes. In the second category, which concentrated on railroad images captured with mobile devices, winning photographs include additional rail landscapes from the United States and United Kingdom.

The organization’s co-founder, John Gruber, and other individuals judged photo submissions for the 2016 contest. The organization received more than 330 photographs taken by 141 photographers from more than 30 different states and 10 countries.

The special photography exhibit will debut on April 1 and will remain on display through Jan. 12, 2018.

More information on the photo contest is available online.
