Anyone who loved NS enough to make it part of their ID would not spell Southern incorrectly.

Everyone is harsh because you might be an old member that has decided to post here again even though he was already banned.

As to the picture you posted, it won't get accepted here. It is unlevel and cloudy for starters.

A suggestion would be to study the pictures on here and try and replicate the results. However don't try to bite off more than you can chew. Start on a sunny day, as light is very important here, and make sure the sun is at your back when you take the pictures. As for composition the rule of thirds is a great starting point. If you don't know what it is just google it.

There is a lot to learn, but those are the starting points. You will also need a good photo processor like photoshop. And what camera are you using?

Andy, don't waste your breath. "TrainRat" here thought we wouldn't notice that he even flipped the picture (most likely taken on the single track west of Johnstown) in addition to the horrible cropping and leveling. I highly doubt a novice who couldn't post-process would know how to flip a pic.

Does anyone have access to IP numbers for this poster? That would be the easiest way to deal with this. If the IP is indeed originating from Altoonaland, then we know. Otherwise ...

Guys don't start making accusations before you know the truth, this person may really need help.

Anything is possible, I suppose. I will say this, in all my time online, I've seen a lot of bad writers, just the way it is sometimes, but I've never seen any who does this sort of capitalization - really bad writers undercapitalize, not overcapitalize.

This is a lie, there is no "TrainManNorfolkSouthern" with the fourth part spelled correctly - just check the member list. He is a liar. Sorry, Walter, this time your instincts or your compassion proved wrong, I guess.
