Default Anyone notice?

One of my favorite RP photogs is Nick McLean. He always comes up with an interesting way of shooting trains. But I'm surprised no one caught this. I e-mailed Nick. He said he didn't catch it either at first.

Hehe, Chris.

Good eye, Joe! I didn't notice it until you mentioned it.

Pretty cool - even if it is "backlit" . . .

Would have been very cool if it had been CSXT 379 leading, but AC4400CWs don't lead coal trains if they're running DPUs.

Looks like a 3 digit lottery box bet waiting to happen.

Yup, Nick is very quietly putting together a very nice portfolio here. I'm still jealous of his spring steam trip last year. He hit four or five railroads in as many days and came away with a ton of successful RP posts. Sunny....cloudy....rainy...didn't matter. He nailed 'em all.

Glad to see others are as big a fan of Nick as I am. The fact he has no PCAs is criminal.

Seems like if your first name is Nick, you're in good shape: Nick Suydam, Nick D'Amato, Nick McLean, Nick Benson, Nick Wilson....

/Another RP contributor getting robbed in the PCA voting: Georg Trub. Only 2 PCAs and non since November 2008. Are people looking at the same RP I am?
