R.P. Middlebrook worked as a locomotive engineer for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF). Because of his interest
in trains, he photographed, wrote about, and collected materials related to locomotives and railroad history. Several of Middlebrook's
articles were published in the
The Journal of San Diego History.
