Peter Hoople's Collection

     Peter Hoople first became interested and then thoroughly involved in railroad photography back in the 1980s.
Despite limited mobility he did manage many trips to Oneonta, NY to see the D&H when it was absorbed as part of the CP Rail network. He was a member of the Leatherstocking Railway Historical Society out of Cooperstown Jct NY for many years; one of the few Canadian members.
As well, he traveled extensively in SW Ontario, enjoying the action at such places as London, Woodstock and of course the CP Galt sub. Niagara was his stomping grounds however, living in Wainfleet and Welland during his railfanning years it only made sense to keep a close eye on activity at Welland Yd., Fort Erie and St. Catharines, often hanging out with locals such as yours truly of www.NiagaraRails. Health misadventures in later years unfortunately took a toll on Pete, and his railfanning love was curtailed to getting out about once a day to look around. And worse, railroad activity seemed to dry up around the same time frame. Pete died in his sleep on the morning of December 27, 2017, but his legacy lives on in this showcase of some of his favourite works. - A. W. Mooney
