Description:  "Rails to Whales" Steam Train Photography by Ken Roberts

Cetacean Society International presents Rails to Whales. A celebration of steam trains and great whales through photographs and drawings. We are pleased to again be at Open Studio Hartford. The photography in this Rails to Whales exhibit by CSI is by Ken Roberts of Glastonbury. His family donated his personal collection of photos of steam rail to CSI to raise funds to save whales. The pictures are both portraits of steam engines and also fine detail of parts of these magnificent engines. From rusted bolts to glistening pistons, Roberts created works of art where others might see just a train. R2W has been well received. CSI (Cetacean Society International ) is a leader in the local, national and international efforts to protect and save whales. CSI was founded in Hartford in 1974 as the Connecticut Cetacean Society. We are best known locally for our early efforts to advocate and teach about cetaceans through grass roots activities. CONNY, the life size cement statue of a sperm whale on the lawn of the Children’s Museum in West Hartford was built by the volunteers of the Cetacean Society. It was our campaign that got the legislature to name the Sperm Whale as the State Animal. For forty years, we are known and respected, far and wide, as a leading all volunteer, non-profit organization with the mission to save whales. In so many ways, in saving the whales we are saving the planet and ourselves.
