It would be a darn shame also in a 100 years to find a damp basement with a pile of filthy, scratched LP's alongside waterlogged, moldy, dirty, albums of faded negatives and prints.

Archiving is archiving no matter the medium.

Yeah, and with the super-advanced technology 100 years from now, those people will be saying, "What in the hell were they thinking?!"

My slides just came in today. About a 1/3 of it is trains, there is some really good stuff on here. I got two specials including our very own Florida East Coast #2000 commemorative diesel, was locked away in storage for years rusting away, the CEO decided to pull it back out of storage fix it up and put it on their Christmas train. The neat thing is it's the only GP40 on their roster, everything else 4-axle have been converted to -2's and -3's. It's painted in the same colors as the E8's from the 50's in red and gold and we all know how well Kodachrome renders those colors. They looked good on the projector I'll get them scanned and upload them.

It'll get rejected for being on the dark side.

I had a similar situation where a LEO wouldn't let me on the other side. I asked him if he was allowed to go on the other side. He said, "well obviously yes". I asked him if he could take my camera then and take a shot for me after I explained how I wanted it, and he did. May work for you next time. Doesn't hurt to ask.

It was a shot of the CSX anti-terrorist training train.
