Default Q about how to ID something like this

I am not going to worry about resubmitting since this was the only shot I have (a chance catch at a truck stop in NE and thought it was a bit different seeing a train car sitting on a flatbed trailer), but I had a question on how to log in the data on something like this.

Assuming I come across another weird shot that works sun-wise, how would you reference this re the input?

Thanks

DB

I would imagine that a photo like this would have to be captured perfectly in order to be accepted. Not only do you have harsh light, but the scene is cluttered with background distractions. I'd say if you had a clear view of the trailer and the railcar along with the sun a little lower, it may overcome a rejection.

My personal opinion.

Chase, you didn't read his post at all, he did not ask that.

DB, I don't see any bad info, it looks fine. The one time I had a car shot I also used the car number as the "engine" number and a generic car type for the "engine" type, so that has worked at least one time previously. Maybe someone else will chime in.

The two objects in front, on the left may be some sort of toppled post and base, but what is that yellow thing on the right?

I think that spikey object is the truck stop owner's version of a Jersey barrier to keep trucks from parking on the grass - he must have gotten the idea of that version from a place called Normandie.

I did read his post, J. Don't start with me.. You're already aware of my trip to Baltimore next month, I'll gladly come up there and give you a piece of my mind.

I didn't comment on the bad info (like he requested), I simply gave my thoughts on the photo. He obviously thought it stood a chance (he submitted it?) and therefore, I was just offering that he'd stand a better chance of having it accepted if he not only had better sun (as he stated), but if he also had a less cluttered scene.

Should you make it this far, I will of course show you and your friends my good manners, as I hold to my standards regardless of the riff raff around me.

But I am speaking with the state police and other parties to determine what sort of barriers can be established to prevent you from entering my fair state.

Thanks for the laugh.

Drop me a note when you get all of this arranged.

To me, the only weird thing about the location is "At a truck stop along I-80". No idea what you could type in instead, tho.

Kudos for trying something different!

Instead of what?

Every photo I've submitted to this site included a location that I manually typed in (or copied and pasted from a previous photo of mine from the same location). Looks to be the same with Buffie's shot, too.

For instance:

Cool shot, I had previously favorited it. If anyone hasn't done so, click through and check out Jim's remarks.

That's pretty funny. In Clearwater, the SAL/SCL/CSX mainline from Tampa to St. Pete runs smack dab through the middle of a golf course. I have a pic on somewhere of it. Now it gets 1 train a day each way, and it's usually before anyone is on the course, and late afternoon. But it used to have 6 passenger trains each way, plus multiple freights. There were rules in the books to not use bell or whistle while on the course, and it had a 10mph speed limit. There was a public grade crossing on each end of the course though. Nowadays, they still run slow, but it's not like before. I can imagine there have been multiple instance like that over the years.

Here is one
