    Because of last week's break from the challenges, let's see whatever you want to show off this week! :D

    New photos are highly encouraged. One photo per member.

    "Times up" will be posted next Monday so don't wait until the last minute. After the times up I'll post the poll for everyone on TrainBoard to choose their favorite image.

    Best of luck!

    P.S. nothing is derailed - that's how the track is.

    Nothing derailed? But that wouldn't be prototypical. :tb-wink:

    Very nice shot. I seriously wondered if you accidentally posted a prototype picture. That car on top of the bridge just about iced for me!

    Amazing scene and photo, Mike. Both my son and I did double-takes on that one. Can you give any details on how you "sunk" your ties into the mud? That looks similar to what I want to do for an old rail yard in Brooklyn.

    When I glued the track down I used Fuller's MaxBond which is a lot like Liquid Nails. I pressed the track down into the glue and it oozed up nicely and I used it to cover lots of the ties. Then I added sand, powdered clay, tea leaves and some plaster dust and pulverised twigs all glued down like ballast. I'll put some pics in the Inspection Pit.

    I'm definitely glad to see as much as the station as possible, but you'll have to choose your favorite single photo to use for voting. ;)

    Feel free to share the others in the Weekend Photo Fun or the Cutting Room Floor. :)

    Mark,

    I am still trying to figure out how to use this forum properly,
    How is the best way to eliminate the extra photos and post only the one I want to keep?

    Mike, take a new picture of the whole station & enter that one. Or pick the best picture you have & enter that one.

    Break-time conversation is interrupted as #506 comes blasting out of the forest on a crisp November Minnesota morning...
