Here's one of them

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=479991680

Mark, you must have typed in the URLs manually as in both cases you misspelled the "view" part of them, as well as putting in the extra bracket. For the other one there is something else wrong also, perhaps you mistyped one of the numbers.

Just copy and paste the URL from your browser, errors are less likely that way.

For the one I linked, I think the issue is simply that it is not clearly a RR station and so the shot seems to be more of a buildings.net shot (if such a site existed).

The milepost (kmpost?) shot, I now see it attached, what was the rejection reason for that?

RP has gotten stricter on abandonment shots of late. But if you abandon the "309" I see some potential. Specifically what is that in the weeds trackside, down closer to the station? A switchstand or something? If you dump the milepost - boring, doesn't have an "old" look - and move in farther, you get a better view of the former freight house or whatever it is, with the switchstand in the foreground. It just might work out, and even if it does not, it may make for a nice shot for your personal collection.

Two posts cut off above their bases. I have no idea whatsoever what they are. And they are blocking part of the structure. And little visible of the track, former track, abandoned ties, whatever is left. All fixable, but this version does not work at all.

EDIT: sorry, got distracted, the track is there

Go back when the sun is more appealing on the building, but step to the left a little, put the signs in the right third of the frame and show the track and building. Might not make RP, but it will be a better shot. If you do try to upload it to RP, make sure you put in the caption what thosesigns are and how they are railroad related.

I'm not a fan of this effort. I would suggest a) a vertical crop, which gets rid of the really ugly and uninteresting wall and fence on the left side, and b) going at a different time of day when the side of the goods shed is not in dark shadow. For that matter, this shot suffers from the harsh light that comes with high sun, so this time of day is definitely not helping you.

Also, the shot needs to be much sharper - I hope this is a limitation of technique and processing and not of the camera.

rejected "not sharp enough" i'm still getting to know the camera there must be 300 pages to the user manual and 50 different menus to follow here are some more shots rejected peq.I must admit the bus was a big ask but it is a rail bus.

How far is Kandos from Mudgee? You could go there to see the daily cement train

That bus photo might be nice on http://www.busaustralia.com/forum/ or a BusPictures.Net site (hey, why isn't there one of those?). However if RailPictures was accepting photos of buses taken at railway stations then I would have a few to add

Its about an hours drive. Does it run regularly or only as needed? When i was a driver at Mudgee the cement only ran at night due to passsenger trains,now its Charbon coal trains since the line from Kandos to Gulgong has been closed.

It runs every weekday IIRC. It's timetabled to run slightly ahead of the 0955 Sydney Terminal to Lithgow V set, although when I saw it at Lithgow last month it was running 20-30" late. Usually a couple of 81 classes.

ARTC would have the times for the Wallerawang to Kandos section.
