    It's Sunday afternoon with no entries yet!? Perhaps the Thanksgiving holiday was too close for comfort for this weekend's contest. We might just have to open this one through Tuesday.

    Excellent! 7 entries in 6 hours. All this guy needed was a little bump. :D

    But since I already mentioned it, I'll still go ahead and extend this one out till Tuesday so that we have no chance of missing an entry because of a mix up.

    Also, I wanted to add this to the rules post but forgot. If you attach your entry, we'd like to have you then go back and edit the post to embed the full size attachment into the post. That way when judging comes, no one has to make any extra clicks to see all the detail the images have. People are quite lazy, even when it comes to a simple click of the mouse. :p

    Pulling in strippers from the Colorado Main


    This is a 5900 ton set-out we drug into Stacy Yard this morning. I'm just figuring out how to take night photos. I left the shutter open for 15 seconds. You can see a light line 3 to 4 cars deep made by my switch foreman's lantern as he made his way back to the cab of the locomotive.

    The photo was taken from the cab of the locomotive while we waited for the train air to charge up. You can see a reflection of the speed indicator in the window in the upper right corner.
