TrainBoard is pleased to offer a new special feature starting in September. It's the TrainBoard Smartphone Challenge. This is not a contest, it's just an opportunity for members to use their smartphones to catch interesting photos and post them to the site. This is not something that should be seen as competing with the other prototype threads in this forum. Here are the rules; Do not trespass (or violate any other laws in the pursuit of photos or videos). Be safe (and legal). All photos must be taken during the period of the thread (i.e. now through September 30, 2012 for this thread). Photos should be taken with your smartphone (or other similar mobile device) and uploaded. The goal of this thread is simply to encourage you to catch (and share) those interesting railroad shots (or videos) that many of you see as you travel the highways and byways of this planet covered with railroad tracks. Now that so many people have a smartphone (which are capable of taking photos and videos at a moments notice), we might as well use them to catch those interesting things that used to cause us to say, "I wish I had a camera!" So, there's your mission. Our first Smartphone Challenge is dedicated to our friend Wolfgang Dudler.
