    1. All challenges close at 12 midnight (24:00 hours) Eastern Standard Time on Monday Nov 3rd 2008, and will be noted with a "Time's up!" post within the thread.
    2. Please use the challenge as a motive to take a new photograph rather than using a photograph that you have taken in the past.
    3. Challenges are open to everyone, have fun!!
    4. Though not required, commenting on other peoples pictures is encouraged.
    5. Only one image per participant so please choose the image carefully. And if you have one not entered don't forget "Cutting Room Floor" thread.
    6. Any posts with images taken before the commencement of the challenge will not be entered in the poll.
    7. For photos to be eligible they must be taken between the Oct 31st and Nov 3rd 2008.
    8. Ensure dates and times on your camera are correct.
    9. Photos to challenge those modelers.

    We look forward to seeing many contributors, remember this is to encourage all modelers to take a shot of the subject rather than post a photo taken in the past.

    Personal note from Mr. Train: Maybe some one can help with the poll on Tuesday am I have not done a poll yet. It's been a while so I am just helping to fill the gap.

    The SD40-2 shouldn't be a problem, but the slugs will require some heavy kitbashing

    Wrecked Boxcar on Wreck-flat

    This is one of three high cub boxcars that were involved in the derailment earlier this year when a BNSF train hit a stump placed in the middle of the tracks. They are still setting there waiting pick-up in November!
