    OK, it's a winter scene :D

    Proto or modeled. If you live in a climate that's hot all year, you may substitute anything to do with Christmas or other winter holiday. In either case, it must be railroad related.

    Since we are off to a late start, you may enter up to the last day of December.

  2. This is a photo from a portuguese 200 series locomotive, here in Vila Real de Santo Antonio in the usually sunny Algarve, but this time, in the middle of snow... photo taken in 1952!

    Here's another one from my little Christmas layout...(& I mean little!) :D

    In this scene, a train rounds the bend into town, as some of the villagers make their way over to the church, in preparation for the upcoming Christmas pagent...

    We gather Round the Christmas Tree

    T'was the night before Christmas, and down by the tracks, all the hotrods were running, to see who's the best. The valve were all set in the engines with care, in hope that the rods would stay in the pans. The track was all dry from the desert without snow, the tires did bite and oh did we go. When I let out the clutch there was such a clatter, as the front end rose and the engine didn't spatter. Away down the track I flew with a flash, I banged all the gears and hoped I didn't crash. How fast I went I didn't know, till I got the ticket which I read in the glow... Merry Christmas to all and all a good nite. Dash

    December photo contest

    Here's my contribution. CN 2530 and 5270 on intermodal train #103 at Pine Orchard, Ontario. This is on CN's Bala Sub, 38.38 miles north of Toronto Union Station. Taken January 12, 2001 at 11:45 am. I waited all morning for this guy... there was still some frost left in the tree's in the background. Winter, is there a better time to be out shooting?

    1988 Chicago winter.

    Taken at Wolf Point, just outside the CNW Union Station, on the West bank of the Chicago River. To the left is the Merchandise Mart and the North branch of the river. This METRA commuter train backs into Union Station on this bitterly cold day in 1988. The train is coming off the Milwaukee Road West line. I have heard that these engines have been or soon will be retired.


    Glad to find another fine place to post my RR images!

    Time for me to jump into the snowbank I guess:D

    Winter has hit the Kettle Valley, with 2 days of heavy, wet snow blanketing the area and the crews are fighting the elements hard in an effort to clear the line.
    Work Extra 5022 with Plow # 401016 holds the mainline at Kettle Valley, while Work Extra 8423 with Spreader # 402875 waits in the hole beside the station.

    This is a night shot I took EXACTLY 35 years ago, Dec 23rd, 1968, at 8:30pm. We are looking down on a pair of tracks leading from the West into the Central station of Berne, capital of Switzerland. Soon a train will arrive - the main and approach signals are open for a speed of 25 mph (grren/yellow). The pic was made from a track overpass.

    Since then we didn't have too many white Holidays in the lower parts of Switzerland. :( Oh well, I'm still Dreamin' of a White Christmas...

    Seasons Greetings to you all! :wave: :wave: :wave:
