    For all railfans in particular and all Trainboard members in general, I have a picture (b&w) clipped from the local newspaper that establishes a connection between the late, great Edward R. Murrow and railroading.

    What do I need to do to post such a picture on TB & to which "forum" should I post it?

    Stan,

    The first thing you need to do is get it uploaded to a place on the internet that allows posting to TrainBoard such as RailImages.

    Do you have such a place or RailImages account?

    1. I do not have a RailImages account.
    2. Not sure I understand "... have such a place..." (i.e. place on the Internet that allows posting to the Internet).
    3. Picture was published in our local newspaper, with their name shown under (presumably, copyright). Maybe I need to contact them to see if I need permission to post on Trainboard.

    Stan,

    Yes, if published in a newspaper you need to find out if they hold a copyright on it.

    You can get a free RailImages account to upload photos at http://www.railimages.com

    Another option is to post a link to an existing copy of the image somewhere else. Does the newspaper have a website where they put up copies of their articles (like the Wisconsin State Journal and the Capital Times do at http://www.madison.com )?
