Default caught my eye

This caught my eye, I tried the same shot, but went with a close up instead, I like the way the rails glowed with the sun, Jim's shot really brings that out ironically Jim's lead engine is CN mine is EJ&E, little did we know when Jim took this that CN would own EJ&E!

Thanks, Bill. I actually have one that is a little closer and more similar to yours, but I really liked the longer stretch of rail glowing. I probably wouldn't have bothered to submit this one, but we're having a contest on another train forum to get at least one photo accepted to RP every day during the month of July. I'm running low on pics, so I'm having to dig back in the archives for stuff that I just hadn't considered submitting before. So, if you see some really boring shots from me in the next three weeks, that's why.

I'd say so, at least with all the talk I hear about the RPnet death squad screening team. So 31 photos in 31 days past the death squad will rank you up there with your idol Micheal Jackson.

You couldn't even type out the name? Let's say it together: railroadfan.com
Railroadfan.com is shorter to type than "another train forum." Don't want people to know about your style of postings over there? lolz
