    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!

    Hmmm... I am pretty sure I have seen the picture that you speak of elsewhere. Mark might be honored or he may just have to take another trip on the CZ to kick your butt. It is a tough decision that you have to make. Good luck!

    The 8:05am Amtrak train from Eugene to Portland has just crossed the Steel Bridge and is moving away from me, pulling into Portland's Union Station this morning (Wed 8/24/11). You can see the station tower in the background.

    Yes, that's out Game Host, Mr. "Mark Watson" himself; run for your lives! Mark and I finally met up in Denver and I treated him to visit to one of my local hangouts, the Colorado Railroad Museum.
    Anybody got 25 cents so he turn on the engine sounds!:tb-wink:

    Why thank you everyone! :) I must give thanks to Darren (Stourbridge Lion) for this photo since I took it while on a tour of the Colorado Railroad Museum with him.
