Southeastern Railway Museum


The Southeastern Railway Museum is a hidden gem for Lomographers and sits right outside Atlanta. It houses over 75 extinct trains, many of which you can walk through. You get a day’s pass and can come and go as you please!

I’ve been meaning to go to the museum for close to a year and after two rainy day attempts recently, I finally made it! I was thrilled and can’t believe I haven’t gone until now. I had some expired film to work through and so I took about 10 rolls on three different cameras: a Holga, a Recesky, and an old Pentax. I brought along some redscale and I’m glad I did because I’m very pleased at how most of the pictures turned out. It was even a relief because I’ve been taking so many pictures on expired film and have had some lackluster results lately! Go redscale!

The others are just on some expired 1600 B&W 35mm film.

I highly recommend that if you live in Atlanta or are visiting anytime soon, do visit this location and shoot until you can’t anymore!

Currently, it’s only $8 to get in and you get an informative map detailing each train. I recommend taking various speeds of films because some of the trains are housed inside, some outside, and some are open to walk through.

The Holga Family is known for its saturation, shadowy vignettes, and dream-like scenes. This iconic camera clan will definitely steal your heart with its plastic charm. Head to our Shop and see which Holga is for you!

Who says film is dead? Lomography’s got its very own emulsions to keep the fire burning! Visit the "Shop: and see which Lomography film is right for you.
