This was a really tough choice -- I love MOW equipment and like to get ideas from others work. But bridges are soooo scenic! And I think the idea of voting on the topic is great. Next time my son comes for a visit, I going to try to convince him to "return" my digital camera.

Of course Mainline Actions kinda Fun too ;)

Those are both nice photos, but you're apparently overlooking the fact we're talking about the MODEL railroad photo competition.

(Either that, or your model railroad is the most true to life I've ever seen, bar none... :))

Lots of good choices to vote on.
My vote went for the "junk" category as I have a couple of scrap steel gondolas that I modeled. :)
