I originally took this for the Trains Magazine photo contest, "Bridging the Gap." This is why the bridge plate (the black box in the lower right) is in the shot. It is there intentionally, not because it just got in the way.

For this shot, I used a Canon PowerShot A2000 IS.

Thanks for your help!
Can you explain what this bridge plate is? And how does this "bridge the gap" (metaphorically speaking, of course)?

Next time you're at this station, walk down to the end of the platform and shoot beyond that fence. Unfortunately, no matter how high you get, that thing is going to be a shot-killer.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
