    Hi all, did ya miss me while I was on break last week? Never fear, I'm back and ready for some fun.

    *Please read all rules as they may have changed from previous weeks*
    If you notice a typo, error, or confusing statement, please notify Mr. Train or Mystere immediately for correction and clarification.

    Photo Challenge Topic: "Passenger Service"

    1. All challenges close at 10pm Pacific Standard Time, 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.
    6. Any posts with images taken before the commencement of the challenge will not be included in the poll.
    7. For photos to be eligible they must be taken between Friday June 19th and Monday June 22nd.
    8. Ensure dates and times on your camera are correct.
    9. On June 22nd, all entries will be put up for a public vote, in which all members of Trainboard may vote for their favorite entry, regardless of whether you submitted an entry or not. Voting will be unlimited multiple choice.

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

    Lets see some passenger service!

    Personal note

    Now that all the legal stuff is posted a personal note from ME!

    I will be out of (internet) touch this weekend so it will be up to you the members to police your self.:we2-policeman:
    Note this post was done on Thursday and the poll will be posted on Tuesday when I get back. I didn't want to let any one miss a contest. So post photos Friday and I will be here Tuesday to poll. Everyone have fun and carry on posting and promoting this contest. I will see all the fine posts Tuesday.

    Thank you for your time.

    Nobody wants to play? Well, I trudged back out the the same bridge as two weeks ago, the Trent River Bridge, and imaged the RDC crossing it @ 1238 hrs today.
