After seeing Chase's and the one above I thought I might be able to play this one, but no dice: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...59&key=4576482

Last night, giving RP the benefit of the doubt, I figured maybe your pic didn't look enough like an actual railcar. Y'know... even thought IT IS.

But, then I saw this (and even a few others):

It's a clear case of ambiguity.

Did you really expect them to accept that?

I'll go back later with a chainsaw and it should be golden!

Like I said Troy, after seeing this: http://www.railpictures.net/viewphot...476449&nseq=24
I thought I'd give it a try. Figured there was a stoned screener on duty, that's all.

Cool - make sure you leave one single tree uncut to create the feel of a subject abandoned in the woods!

I'd do the same but the trees have since been mowed down and the box car scrapped to make way for a car shop.

Not sure if anything like that will ever happen here. The abandoned lines around this have been "repurposed" as trails. Historically there were a couple of tracks behind this car (like a mini-yard even) but as they were just on a rail connection between the two railroads they aren't in use as trails at present. Behind the embankment in the background is a huge limestone quarry which in the past had used either road (depending on customer preference/location) to ship the stone. Nowadays that is all being done by trains of the rubber-tired sort, barreling up and down Highway 11 and literally terrorizing the motoring public (this coming from an ex-trucker himself remember) with their aggressive tactics. I think this particular piece of land has since been forgotten. Someone should buy the place, relic railcar and all, and fix it up into a retreat cabin or something of the sort. Not me though, already have enough projects to last this lifetime and the next!
