White River Junction Productions provides magazine and book editorial and production services for the railroad-oriented segment of the publishing industry. We specialize in authoring, copy-writing, editing, and magazine and book design and layout, which includes typesetting, photo scanning, and image restoration. We also maintain a photo archive of some 100,000 railroad images taken by WRJP founder and proprietor Mike Schafer starting in 1964. We are closely allied with Kevin EuDaly's Missouri-based White River Productions and invite you to visit WRP's website to see examples of both WRP's and WRJP's work. Kevin's White River Productions is the Number One producer of magazines for railroad historical societies, and we're proud that our White River Junction Productions has played a key role in this.

Our “Slides With Mike Schafer” photo CD series continues to grow!

In 2012, White River Junction Productions began offering its own line of products, the flagship of which is our “Slides With Mike Schafer” photo CD series. Known for his slide shows documenting his railroading adventures since 1964, Mike has traveled from coast to coast and Canada to the Gulf, sharing his slides with a wide array of railroad groups. Our photo CDs are the next best thing to Mike giving a slide show in person in your own home. Check our PRODUCT DEPOT for more information on Mike’s photo CDs and other items in our line of products.

Beginning in the Fall of 2018, we are offering a sale of pre-1996 back issues of Passenger Train Journal Magazine. In 2018, PTJ celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding. Currently Missouri-based White River Productions owns and publishes Passenger Train Journal while White River Junction Productions handles the editing and assembly of PTJ. Go to our Products Depot section of this website to order PTJs published from the late 1960s to 1996.

Named for Vermont's beautiful White River and its namesake railroad junction in the southern part of the Green Mountain State—a favorite vacation and railfanning destination for proprietor Schafer—White River Junction Productions was founded in Mike's home state of Illinois in 2005, not far from the nation's railroad capital: Chicago.
