Eh, this one doesn't bother me so much. They're different enough to be accepted in my opinion. One chose to focus more on the train while the other put more emphasis on the landscape.

Besides.......HERITAGE!!!!!!

Perhaps that is the way it seems, but like so many things in life, the true significance of what is obvious, may not be what you think it is at all.

True, I am kicking myself a little bit for not chasing this.

But really, this is a better shot from that location.

Apparently you did it to mess with the screeners? If so, well done, sir.

But you would never do a thing like that......

You're a saint. I bet you're the type of person who picks spiders up and sets them outside the door instead of smashing them.

Yes, unless they are widow spiders - really, I do take them outside.

The purpose of the two photos you mentioned is quite clear and the clues are many.

Find it if you are interested, otherwise it is ok.

Ya I got it. There are a ton of GEVOs on Cajon and its easy to sneak similar pictures past the screeners if you space them out. Now the point of actually submitting pictures to prove that obvious point… that I can't figure out.

I also don't get the point of repeatedly calling out MojaveSub (or whatever he goes by now a days) for having similar shots when all of your pictures are taken at one of three places. Unless there is some big inside joke I'm missing. In which case you are that dude posting inside jokes on a public internet forum.

And my pervious comment was directed at your picture and comment from Essex (or there about, as I didn't actually click on the link).

Quite clear is obviously false, given the responses here, and the one not stated by me. And there is no indication whatsoever that any of us should be interested.

If a person pontificates in the woods and no one is there who is listening, does he say something of worth?

Oh, and nice job on the communication tower PS job.

Some would say God is listening (and lately the NSA) but that is a bit outside the scope of this discussion.

Seriously though, is that how the value of one's message to society is to be gauged - by how many people are there to hear it?

Must have been the glare....

The train was really there.

He has put the arrow where the train was located and it is a little off.

Follow Goffs Road to the end and that is National Trails Highway (Route 66) and they are on the overpass of Essex Road over the BNSF tracks.

Goffs Road is actually visible (going away from the viewer) in the upper right part of Mathew's photo.
