Default Duhhhh, I need some help Please

I had another picture rejected . . And since I'm new to trains in general
and still have a LOT to learn, could someone please explain what this
rejection message means. (It's been a couple of days so I cann't link
to the picture.)

"" Photo Submission Results:

Photo ID 6573 was rejected from the database.
Railroad: Norfolk Southern
Locomotive: GE C40-9W (Dash 9-40CW)
Reason for Rejection: Front coupled roster shot ""

Does it make a difference if it is coupled in front or back ? ?
(Guess it does ! Otherwise it wouldn't have been rejected )
But why does it make a difference ? Is the "front" the cab end ?

Thanks

Default The White Zone is for loading and unloading only.

It's an American hardcore RR photo buff thing; they get pedantic at times - most times, actually. It will never change, you ether have to join the True Believers or go your own way. As William Blake wrote, "I must create a system, or be enslaved by another man's."

One of many!

They DO accept front coupled roster shots - there have been quite a few uploaded lately - if the subject isn't too common.

The "front" is nominally defined as the cab end, even when the real "F" end might be at the long hood end.

If you REALLY want to stir things up, ask about which film to use. You could start the Kodak vs Fuji war or even the Kodachrome vs. all E-6 film war. It's almost as bad as Coke vs. Pepsi.

here is a earlier thread that also discusses the virtues of roster shots. And yes, as pointed out by mu23 , there is a "set standard" that applies to rosters, with very few exceptions..ie, rare or obsolete power...which brings up a point, we currently have no screeners (that I know of) that are that familiar with internatiional power, so it might be a good idea to state in the comments if it is something rare.

check out this thread for more roster shot conversation... http://www.railpictures.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=383


Now, as far as coke and pepsi go... neither can hold a knuckle aganst a Ice cold bottle of ALE-8 One... a true KY tradtion... Nothing better than a Ale 8 and a moonpie for a track side snack

Default If the mat is not straight, the master will not sit.

I hadn't realized that "pedantic" and "set standard" were synonymous, but then again, I hadn't realized people mixed KY and ale.

Yep, same here. Nothing but a camera and a car for some shelter. Wish I had a scanner, though. That would be nice because then atleast you know when a train is about to come.

Oh, and I like Gatorade
