Hey Space. I'm trying to pick topics that will be good for everyone. I didn't know there was anyone who doesn't have a tunnel on their layout. :D

Can you take a pic from the club layout? That would be fine.

OK, if you really don't have any tunnels, and don't have access to a club or public layout, then get creative and find something that at least resembles a tunnel. Maybe coming out from between some buildings, or going under a bridge.

Post it, along with a note saying "Hey, this is as close to a tunnel as I could get" and we'll accept it as your entry. Obviously folks with a real tunnel may have a better chance in this one, but we can't always pick subjects that everyone can participate in.


PS - Hey Grande Man:
Maybe we'd better cross "Working live steam locomotives in N scale" off the list of potential topics...

Space, I've been thinking, if you get one of those styrofoam tunnels and shoot a pic, you'll win on humor factor alone. :D:D:D

Stay off the tracks!
You know, I won't have any tunnels on my layout, but I'd have a great "snaking out between two structures" shot... in about 6 months, I'd guess. I'll catch ya next time on this one.

Hi all. Please excuse the changes I've been making in the Contest thread. I've finally got it set up in, what I think, will be an acceptable manner. The thumbs now link to the larger pics! Yahoo! That's one more notch in the keyboard of the computer challenged... :D

I'm looking forward to seeing your entries! Let's see some tunnel shots. :cool:

Thanks for doing this Grande Man! I don't participate in the contests often but I do enjoy watching them.

BTW, I think Bob usually linked the thumbs to the gallery, kinda like this:

Cool, now we know who to draft as an assistant for the photo contests... ;)


Meanwhile, Eric has been learning how to do the html part of things, and figuring out what links to what and how etc. He's going to be posting the photos on a regular basis, since I'm too busy to keep up with it. I really appreciate his help, and hope everyone will be patient for the first couple tries while he learns all this stuff.

We actually spent quite a bit of time on HTML in 8th grade. Then I forgot about it for a year or so, then used FrontPage (which is WYSIWYG so I didn't use it much there)...and then started doing my eBay stuff. It was a bit of a slap in the face when I realized how cruddy the WYSIWYG in TurboLister was, so it was time to learn it all over again. I like doing HTML now becuase I understand it,

<marquee>(or at least I think I do :rolleyes: )</marquee>
(and it's nice to steal pictures off of our other website instead of paying eBay 15 cents every time), but this PHP and XHTML is a bit over my head...

Anyway, if you ever need any help I'll gladly do what I can. I'm going to be on the computer quite a bit over the next couple of days (I have about 150 Atlas N engines to move). Then again I also have to read a 300 page book and write a 1500 word review, plan a lesson for AP Euro next week, hang some drywall, do some painting, figure out the drop ceiling grid, install lighting, finish up the trim, paint the floor....
