Thank you! I don't think it will get boring. I'm sure it will be a pain in the ass some days but never boring.

Hello fellow SW Ohio railfan!

(I still lurk around RP occasionally)

As for your shot, it looks like the sun was just too high and too strong for the type of picture you were taking. It's a...

First one is fine.

I would've rejected your second shot for horrendous selective editing.

Rail-vids never really did take off. No real need for a site like that with Youtube out there. RP still wins for photos. For not at least :lol:

Kevin, as far as I could tell there wasn't much room on the other side. And if they did let more than Ms. Boggs over there, then we all would've been clamoring to. It isn't as cleared off as the...

The train is leaning CW (seems to an elevated curve) while other verticals in the scene are leaning CCW. It's a tough one that boils down to personal preference but if Jim says it needs rotation, by...

If you return to this location I'd stand about where you're at here, get some elevation if you can and point the camera a...

I've seen a couple of comments about the 611 not running excursions for awhile and I was wondering what the reason was?

If I had to guess it would be the state of railroads and the cut-backs and...

The first one could possibly get in even with the pole but I wouldn't recommend submitting it. Remember: quality over quantity when it comes to submitting. You're getting better!
