I dunno but that head on that light pole is really distracting.

I'd pass on it as well, Nick. Nothing really exciting. More or less a grab shot.

Six hours later, this shot has 500 views without any significant links! The vast majority of shots don't get 500 hits in a day.

It's a photo of a diet pepsi can, of course it's going to get views. See page 45, section 4, paragraph 8, sentence 3 from the guide to RP greatness, by Chase Gunnoe:

Guaranteed views shall rain upon images of rare engines, shots with girls in them, derailments, the first shot of anything new no matter how crappy an image, and Larry's Truck and Electric.

Or is it the paint scheme and not the engine model? Excuse my ignorance on this topic, please ...

To be "real", pepsi can refers to the as-delivered Phase 3 P32's. I guess some people call the phase 4 paint on these units "diet pepsi" or honorary pepsi can, you linked a phase 5, which I have not heard it called a pepsi can ever, but this sport gives everyone an opportunity to interpret things as they see fit

Chase may need to update the bible to include:

Shots of stored locomotives....never seen one yet that didn't score Tol24:

Methinks these make the foamers live up to their title.

And of course......shots of a Big Boy:

At least one of the "guaranteed" categories has a Whyte System classification.

Phase III - Pepsi Can
Phase IV - Diet Pepsi
Phase V - Crystal Pepsi

Now I sound like a true foamer..

Crystal Pepsi, that's a blast from the past...

Little know fact: right before the discontinued it, Pepsi reformulated Crystal Pepsi with a "citrus twist". It was pretty damn good. Did not last long however.

You can rack it up with the "Arch Deluxe" as one of the most hyped failures. I dont consider it anywhere near as big as the "new coke" debacle though.

That right there is a perfect example of something that can (and should) be cloned and you're not changing the scene.


I've only got pepsi cans in the snow.

Is it just me, or do blatantly unlevel shots always get a ton of views?
