Panama Railroad

View of a Train Approaching

As noted in a previous post featuring government photographs of the Panama Railroad, there were many people working on the Canal who took photographs to keep as mementos or to send home to share the things that they were seeing and experiencing. The following such image has no information associated with it, so we would love to hear about the probable date, place, and any other information you may wish to add.

    I agree that it appears the train is approaching Gatun station. The looks like a view I had when my dad was the Panama Railroad station agent there in the 1940s. Our family quarters for a few years was the entire upper level of what was then a very large building. We had great views of the locks and lake as well.
