    I am in awe of the photos here. Great, all.

    Best two photos.... hmmm. Good challenge, Flash.

    From a pure standpoint of what 2 photos are 'best'...... I'll contribute these two:

    The above is just my photography work, the layout is the "Somewhere West"
    N scale layout of Daniel Roth of France, more info at:
    1st US-theme Model RR Convention in Germany Oct 6-7, 2007 Photo Gallery by ATSF_Arizona John Sing at pbase.com

    Here's the 2nd:

    This is the Santa Fe Trainmaster, Santa Fe Fairbanks Morse Trainmasters - Part 1
    taken on Randy Gustafson's layout.

    As usual, anything good in life or in model railroading is always a collaboration, and if
    these pictures are any good, it's because of that collaboration. I think
    we are in an amazing time... we as model railroaders can collaborate across miles, distances,
    continents..... and share the good spirits we have. Even despite huge difficulties in
    today's world (mine included recently), for this collaboration and friendship, I am so humbly thankful. My hat's off to *all* of you, my fellow model railroaders.

    Thanks smallbore! The kit is from a fairly new company called Full Circle Models and is a reproduction of a John Allen car that was featured in a 1950's MR magazine. His philosophy is to use "throwback" construction materials similar to those used by those scratchbuilders of yore but engineered to make fairly easy to assemble. The carbody and it's superstructure are laser-cut cardstock, for example.

    I apologize if a largely duplicate post shows up - I included a link in the first response two days ago and it apparently is still awaiting moderator approval. I'm new and learning the ropes!

    Don't sweat it, Fluesheet- it takes a little time, and I'm not exactly computer-savvy myself.:tb-wink:

    Would that be your post that shows back on page 3 of the thread? We have so much participation this week that it may have showed up after the thread had already rolled over to another page.

    Nothing special in the photo, just a reminder of a pleasant afternoon railfanning around Denver with John Sing...

    [​IMG]

    This one I took while talking on the phone, just outside Dallas. In the background I hear the ding ding ding of the crossing. Like Pavlov's dog, I simply aim and shoot. Only that night do I realize: there are RDCs - in this day and age!! I had no idea they were still being used!

    I rode the TRE RDCs back in 2002- they were well-kept and ran without any problems.

    Beautiful domes, BN Fan!
    The Brass Car Sides conversion makes them even more spectacular, too.
    It is tough to do, and there's tons of sanding involved, but the end product is worth it.

    Doh - it sure is. Either it wasn't there when I re-posted or I went temporarily blind!

    Thanks Ed,

    The Burlington dome weirded me out for a minute. Black wasn't for passenger cars, but locomotives! But it looks good on them.
