Ron Chouinard's Collection
Welcome to Ron Chouinard's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Ron Chouinard.  

Hi, and welcome to my homepage!

I'm constantly adding high quality photos to my many photo albums, with an emphasis on the Providence and Worcester Railroad, here in my home town of Valley Falls, in the Cumberland section of Rhode Island. Other locations and railroads are also featured.

The NEW STUFF album contains any new photos. They'll be here for awhile for you to enjoy before I move them to there proper folders. Feel free to brows the many new photo albums on the right, and below those photo albums are the updated photo albums for a quick update of photos added. Click on the more link below these albums for additional albums.

Before you leave, visit my Published Photos album - this album contains many photos that have been proudly published. Currently I have a featured photo on the official Providence and Worcester web page. Also Railpace - the monthly news magazine where I have 35 photos. Atlantic Northeast Rails and Ports - a trade publication. Journeys - Journeys, a publication of life in the Blackstone Valley Heritage Corridor that runs from Worcester, Massachusetts to Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

I also feature three great collections from two very popular photographer's - the Philip M. Paradis collection chronicles the Providence and Worcester from its independence from Penn Central, January 3, 1973 until his passing. Phil had photos from well known photographer's in his collection, and with their permission, its the first time these appear on the internet. The other photographer is a gathering of slides from Mr Bob Hayes - BAR northern Maine Junction and photos from Bob Hayes. I'm sure you'll be pleased with your visit to these albums.
