Metro-North's former New York Central lines use an under-running third rail, which is covered on the top and sides. Even so, there was plenty of opposition when third rail was extended up to Brewster...

Same here, except if they restrict Explore to paying accounts. Explore gets you a lot of views, faves and comments, and everything you do on Flickr snowballs into even more views, faves and comments....

Maybe he could try at a different time of day, or even during a snowstorm. (With the first or last car visible.)

FWIW, I would have accepted the tight curve shot. Maybe if the end of the train was visible, they would take it?

BTW, the very existence of an uncovered third rail anywhere is outrageous to me....

I've seen that response word for word elsewhere- some Flickr staffer simply cut-and-pasted it. :roll:

True that. There is no way to know which photos will get the axe. How many photos can I view in less than 3 months? Surely not hundreds of thousands! :shock:

"...cannot be corrected." First time I've seen that one.

If this was mine, those wires would need to go. I suppose an experienced photoshopper would move the deer much closer to the engine, but...

Flickr (or should that be SmugMug) really could have handled this in a less thuggish way, maybe grandfathering those over the new limit. A quick estimate puts several hundred thousand photos at risk...

Surely your 1,100,000 views on Flickr are worth something! (I expect to top the million mark there maybe next year).

Is any other photo site offering even that much space for $0.00?

Since...

But then modelers are going to want to see the entire car.

I never quite understood why (to some) it's OK for terrain or vegetation to "cut off" the train, but not the edge of the photo. Is this...

Good video! But I hope that short train is not the norm up there. Most of the Central Vermont trains I encountered were 100 cars or more.

The lean is very, very slight, but try to split the left/right difference. The suspicion arises that they are not enthusiastic about this shot.

The baby-blue recliner kind of spoils the first one IMHO. Besides that. only 'Station' on the sign distinguishes the photo as a railway scene.

Do you have a less tightly composed view of the...

Well that deserves a fave for the visible headlight beam, with CNW converted semaphores for a bonus. :)

Yes, it needs to be rotated -0.6 CCW. I think it's too warm as well. I reduced color temperature -27 with Windows editor. The branches may or may not be a problem.

Good information above! I have not been able to use my very capable Canon all-in-one since my Vista-running laptop died.

If only the journey from raw scan to finished upload was not so arduous!

In some ways, little has changed. Few fans shot late steam/early diesel in color. In movies, it was rare to see 16mm footage rather than 8mm.

As for phone stuff, considering what "equipment" they...

Today's large railroads have homogenized rosters, highway-style signals, and few buildings with any sort of character remaining. So, IMO, photos need something extra to be of interest. Great light....

I like that it shows the cars rather than just light streaks. The Christmas decorations are icing on the cake. I'd fave it if it was on RP. :)
