Sounds like a non-rail guy I follow on Flickr. Endless supply of the same sunset. And he always gets over 50 faves. But he does post an outstanding shot occasionally.

OK, but if a slide photographer was not highly organized, all they have is the date the roll was processed.

My pet peeves? Small photos. Excessive watermarks. Train's direction of travel not given.

Good that this made it in!

BTW... Is there a "West Falls" in Philly? Google finds "East Falls" but not "West Falls".

Something about these is very odd. Download and open in "preview", and the color cast bleeds out beyond the image.

As I type this, among today's accepted offerings there are (as expected) "dark nose" "high sun" "dark trucks" and "going away" shots.

Smaller and fewer is better!

Here's hoping the new management will eventually re-open even more of the line!
