    Scope and Content: 
    The collection consists of approximately 445 (3 inches by 4 inches) photographic negatives of railroad trains taken by Clayton M. Hall of Princeton, New Jersey. The majority of these images are of steam locomotives in service at rail stations and rail yards. The collection primarily documents eastern railroad lines, especially the Baltimore and Ohio, Boston and Maine, Central of New Jersey, and the Pennsylvania, but also includes views of railroads in New Mexico and Canada. A printed guide to the negatives exists in the Archives Center's reading room along with video disc #38105 of all of the photographs in this collection. This guide has detailed information on the prints in this collection. Some envelopes contain two negatives.
    The collection is divided into two series: Series 1, Photographic Negatives, 1936-1966, and undated; and Series 2, Photographic Copy Prints, 1986.
    Donated to the National Museum of American History (then called the National Museum of HIstory and Technology), Division of Transportation (now part of the Division of Work and Industry), in 1972, by Clayton M. Hall. Transferred to the Archives Center in 2009.
