Default Screeners Choice

First, congrats to Mike D for another Screeners Choice photo. It really is a nice shot.
But it is the 3rd nearly identical photo and at least the 5th from the same vantage point to get the Screeners Choice. I get it, the West Coast (and the East Coast as well) has some really beautiful scenery that makes wonderful backdrops for trains but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it would be nice to see some other areas of the US (and other countries) get represented.
Shots in the Midwest are few and far between and usually feature extreme lighting/weather conditions or some other unusual feature. To me, a slow moving train rolling past an old depot on some seldom used branch line or out on the Prairies is beautifully scenic as well. Maybe I am in the minority here, but it would be nice to see some of those photos get rewarded for representing the heart of railroading.
