    **Please read all rules as they may be different from previous weeks!**
    If you notice a typo, error, or confusing statement, please notify user Mark Watson immediately for correction and clarification.


    National Train Day is this weekend! To join in the celebration, this special edition challenge will follow the theme "Railroad Vehicles"!
    Continuing on with the special edition of the Weekend Photo Challenge, each member is tasked to create up to 4 images that together tell a story of railroading as outlined by the topic below. The story can be as simple or complex as necessary and you may include a single sentence or a few paragraphs to explain the story, but each story will be judged by the images and the way they link together.

    Please post all content in a SINGLE post.
    Don't hesitate to ask any questions, and most importantly, HAVE FUN! :D :D

    Prototype Photo Challenge Topic: "Railroad Vehicles"

    Drat. I had a rare chance to shoot some MOW equipment in Richmond the other day, but not only did I not avail myself of the opportunity, it would have been a day too early.

    Maybe next week.

    Darn I missed this one and I actually have a picture that would fit the criteria. Took a shot of an Amtrak California bus at LA's Union Station plus a baggage cart on Friday but missed the submission deadline!!:tb-hissyfit: The cart was posted to my album yesterday can I get a waiver? lol:crying:

    Baggage carts that looked to be as old as LA's Union Station (1938)
    [​IMG]
    Which is used to get baggage from the trains to the buses and terminal

    After leaving LAUPT I went by Filmore on the way back to my room and saw Filmore and Western's Boom truck and #18 steamer at the end of the day

    No worries, Mark. Nice entries everybody!

    P.S. to N-Builder: I moved your photo to the Cutting Room Floor thread as it wasn't taken over the last weekend but a few years back.
