Default Cloudy? Yes. Common Power? No.

This one has me stumped, so I figured I'd ask the experts.

I first tried uploading this image:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=867456&key=0

...which I agree was dark. So, I tried uploading this one:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=570474610

...which was rejected. My guess was that they found it didn't have enough contrast, so I tried this:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=118878931

...which was not rejected for clouds. So, I recropped it, and:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=867892&key=0

...it was once again rejected for clouds, even though I did not change the lighting between the last two.

I'd like to get this one on here because I don't think it's "common power".

Can it be reshot on a day that isn't cloudy?

I think this falls under the "can be reshot on any day" clause of "common power."

I agree. Uncommon power, but it probably runs at least every weekend.

They have non-cloudy days in England?

Why would you think a 100+ year old engine would run at LEAST every weekend?

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

First, try finding an RP contributor who's shot Welsh trains on a sunny day!
Secondly, yes, it's easy to get a sunny shot if you have the time.

I would think that if they did all the work to restore the 100+ year old locomotive to operating condition that they'd be running it at least on a semi-frequent basis. At the very least I'd think they'd be willing to open their doors for some indoor stuff.

Unfortunately for train-a-mania here, the locomotive here doesn't look rare to my eyes that are accustomed to american rails.

To my knowledge it was never taken out of operating condition.

That is my (and I think I speak for everyone) largest problem here.
