I always cringe when I see an unprotected third rail- just outrageously dangerous IMO.
And whatever is that fourth rail for? :confused:

I'm curious as to why it would take that long for setup and takedown. Aren't these things wireless? :confused:

As soon as we enter school, we are graded on everything. There is nothing wrong with "good grades", provided we did not cheat to get them! 8-)

Don't be so hard on books and magazines. Before the internet, they were about all we had! Sure, they gave us Virgil Staff, but they also gave us Plowden and Steinheimer.

Looks like they really don't want this one. Maybe let it sit for a while and then try a wider view?

I've actually seen all of them. Pretty humdrum, actually. If they were sneaked, they weren't worth the risk. I only saved one, a Chinese-looking 2-8-2.

Well, if he wants to be that way, he can show his photos wherever he chooses. Maybe one should have a Plan B in place before blowing up Plan A, though.

The train is too close to the edge of the photo.
The photo is also rather square, and that seems to be a tough sell here.
Was this shot from an opposing train?

I prefer the second one.

As always, I have an intense dislike for large watermarks! Most can be removed, so why bother adding them in the first place? :-x
