    Weather forecast here predicts temperatures in the high 80s for this weekend. So I thought I could send something refreshing like Jo Grant did: A little bit of snow, but this time it's the 1:1 stuff.

    Two men of a MoW crew are busy repairing the linkage of a turnout on a cloudy and windy 25°F morning. Railroading isn't always fun and sunshine... :(

    Ordinarily, the Beach Turn is one of the more pleasant assignments on the railroad. Today, however, the crew is hoping to get through as quickly as they can to avoid the approaching storm!

    'Ol #3' is jumping right into the fray. She's trying out her lighting after being in the repair shed the whole summer. Getting ready for winter. (All enhancements were done with photoshop.)

    Wow! What A Contest!

    The entries this time - What can be said? LOTS of them...and they're all GREAT!!

    Well, here's my go. Here we find the crew of the Megill River C-16 no. 3 headed home across the last trestle, nicknamed "Ol' Creaky". The crew, although looking forward to hometime, still slow right down for the oldest bridge on the line.

    This "trestle" is actually a part of what I was trying to accomplish for last month's photo contest...and that's still not finished yet. Oh, well. I'm ecstatic to be able to squeak in under the wire on this one.

    Here's my entry. Taken on the front deck into the setting sun, and "magic"-ed up by eliminating tender-to-cab wires, cropping and adding smoke.
