Hello, I’m Lou!

Hey there, I’m Lou Capwell! I take pictures, and spend a lot of time on trains. Wanna get in touch? that’s easy.



I spend the bulk of my time promoting, marketing, and social media-ing for various clients in the world of rail excursions, private railcar charters, and other train-adjacent stuff. I did the social media for a notable Class 1 steam operation.  I’m part of the team over at Rail Excursion Management Co., handling our marketing efforts for the upcoming  Autumn Colors Express. I’m on the board of directors at the French Lick Scenic Railway. Basically, if you spend much time in this business, it’s likely that we already know each other.

At heart, though, I’m a photographer. I grew up with it, I’ve made my living from it, and it’s my first love. For the railroad event stuff, check out Centerbeam Photo – we’d love to photograph your next event, big or small. For photos of railroad operations, and whatever else has caught my eye lately, my Flickr page is an excellent place to spend a few minutes. If you’re looking for a more up-to-the-second accounting of what I’m up to, I update my Instagram pretty often as I roam the country on a train.
