Default Interesting enough for avoid high sun?

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

It doesn't matter how interesting it is, the engine is sitting at a museum. Someone can go over there tomorrow, or at least on the next sunny day, and take a good image of it without high sun, so yours does not get on.

Well considering it was scrapped 10 months ago, no they cannot.

Did you make that clear in your submission? It isn't in the remarks, and it should go in the comment to the screener for sure.

I'm not sure whether it will make it in, as RP is not a repository of roster shots, but certainly that is the way to go about it. Good luck.

Exactly. I don't come to RP to find a photographic record of every museum's entire collection. There's other sites for that (RRPictureArchives, Flickr, etc.).

Surprised the wheels aren't chocked to keep the engine from rolling down that grade. Lots of trust in the brakes...

Wasnt aware it was a photographic roster of the museums entire collection.. Thought it was a photo of a rare Wabash SW-1 being scrapped. Your probably right though.

Also not sure why you would chock a unit that is coupled to units with handbrakes on...
