Jim Matuska's Collection
Welcome to Jim Matuska's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of Jim Matuska.  

Hello, my name is Jim Matuska and I live in La Crosse, Wisconsin. I've been photographing the railroads here since the early 1980s. I grew up along the Burlington Route and have many fond memories of the trains, the men and the railroad. I've traveled many places in the Midwest and will share my rail memories with you. I also dabble in quality Railroad Art. Please check out Matuska Rail Art on Facebook for examples. Thank you!

You may browse my collection of pictures via the menu located on the left hand side of the page.  I hope you enjoy the collection and thanks for stopping by!
