You guys need to avoid hanging out at such locations in the dead of night. The boogeyman's gonna get you!
Thanks, Ron.

By the way, seeing those new CP Holiday train pics in this thread makes me wonder something. How come no one has done multiple exposures and blended them together to avoid the blown out lights? It's a pretty simple procedure, yet every one of the pics I see where it's parked some distance away, the lights on the cars are all overexposed.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
