See, this is a perfect example of when the screener and/or Chris/Chris should come here to explain what their eyes are seeing. By committee, this photo has been voted to be level. Now they need to step forward and defend their position.

BINGO!! Actually, I've seen many times a screener should defend a rejection decision, based on commentary here. It's not as if the folks who post to this forum regularly are clueless rubes (well....some of us are.......).

Funny!

Had a horrible time with this one. Had to explain about 6" superelevation on this seemingly shallow curve because of 110 mph operation. This was back when I still had an appeal.

Trains where the tail end is on level, tangent while the headend is into the curve give them fits.

Thats pretty shitty (excuse the language) that they took away your ability to appeal giving the amount of quality photos you submit (not the mention the rarity of alot of your vintage material), its no wonder so many people have got fed up with this site the way they treat members.
