HUNTINGTON -- Guests of the Huntington Museum of Art found themselves on the right track Tuesday evening during the opening reception of the museum's latest exhibit.

The show, titled "Tracks: The Railroad in Photographs from the George Eastman House Collection," features more than 160 years of photographic and railroad history in the United States.

The collection includes works from Bisson Frères, William Henry Jackson, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Lewis W. Hine, Aaron Siskind and others.

The event was free of charge for guests as part of the museum's monthly Fourth Tuesday Tour, which coincides with Free Tuesdays at the museum.

The exhibition will be on display until February 2013. For more information about the Huntington Museum of Art, visit www.hmoa.org.
