2013 was a pretty good year for me as far as railfanning went, so it was hard to pick 7 favorites. I resorted to pulling them up in order of the most favorited and worked my way through, selecting ones I liked even if the favorite count for a few of them wasn't particularly outstanding. Here they are in order of appearance:

I had thought the sunset silhouette of the CP Holiday Train on the Parry Sound Trestle would do better than it initially did, the only reason it got over 3K views was because it got voted into a PCA position. Before that it had topped out around 15 or 1600, but like I said in the comments the fact that many of this site's premiere photographers gave it recognition was more satisfying than if it had made it into the top of 24, for instance. I think the issue there was that you can't really see what it's all about from the thumbnail, the lights decorating it aren't all that visible until the image is opened.
