After high school Neil traveled on the Reading to his classes at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in Philadelphia where he received his degree in 1962. He worked as a chemist for the FDA. Fascinated with trains and with the state of Colorado he moved to Aspen and later to Arvada near Denver. His rail photography took him all over the western states, often in the company of Dave Augsburger. He and Dave also traveled to Europe in pursuit of trains. Neil passed away in May of 2018 and graciously donated photographs and artifacts from his extensive Reading Company collection to the RCT&HS..
