    Hey, it's summer time and we don't have too much time to think about trains and photo contests so I'm going to make it easy this time. The subject of the competition is going to be: any photo of anything as long as it is train related. This can be scale or protoype, real world or fantasy. We are going to double you chances by allowing each member to enter two different photos, and in order for everyone to have a chance, we will wait until they get back from their holiday or vacation by running the contest until the last day of August. Please read the rules. They are simple, but any entry that doesn't comply will be deleted and I really don't want to have to do that. Too much work for a long hot summer.


    1. Photos entered must be train related and of anything, anywhere, serious, humorus, scale or protoype.
    2. Up to two (2) entries per member.
    3. Each entry must be in separate posts (I can't tabulate them if they are in the same post)
    4. Photos must have been taken by the person entering them.
    5. Please upload your pictures to the Gauge, no links please. If you are having trouble uploading, contact me for help.
    6. Contest closes the last day of August
    I told you the rules would be simple. Good luck...:wave:

    I took this over a year ago, one of the first with my then new digital camera and editing program and...(sigh) still makes me feel all oogie inside :) Figure I'll throw it up against the big boys and see what happens.

    I think i'll go with a couple of my favorite Union Pacific prototype pictures for this consist.

    this first one I took just east of Santa Rosa, New Mexico one evening while driving down the interstate.

    Glad you enjoy the pics on the photo contest, as always, we're off to a great start.

    This may seem a bit overly cautious, but if you are going to "add" these to your "collection", it would be a good idea to ask each person first if you can download their image. Each picture belongs to the person that entered it, and although they would be pleased that you liked their photo enough to collect it, good etiquette, and the fact that it might be copyright protected, dictates that you ask first.

    This rule should be followed for any pictures posted anywhere on the Gauge.

    My second entry but also item #106 on my list of "must model" scenes...taken on the west end on the L&N depot/museum in Milton, FL. Might take a moment or two to realize what it is... ;)

    Welcome to the Gauge. An impressive first post I might add. Somehow I can see that picture blown up around four or five foot square and hanging on a wall. Quite contemporary. Nice shot.

    Thanks :) I could blow it up pretty large, it was taken at 6Mp. Seeing as I'm posting I'll put up another.
    edit: You'll know these engines, the first is less obvious, the second is easier ;)

    :wave: It's a foggy, rainy night as an L & N fast freight shoots out of the hole and crosses Bay Area on the bay bridge of the W.C. & T. R. R.
