So; let's say Railwire is producing a "Best of the Wire" 2012 Calendar; what was your "photo of the year" ? Model or prototype; post your ONE and ONLY best photo of 2011....... :scared:
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Would say in my case its this photo for 2 reasons 1) Its a foggy morning and 2) Its a rare catch since there's two NS trains rounding both connectors in Bucyrus at the same time-both was stopped at the Whetstone St.signals at East Col/San and that's another oddity..

I did little modeling and rarely take prototype pictures since, 1> I'm around them all day so it doesn't normally dawn on me to do so and, 2> being a 'foamer' is generally not career-enhancing.

But I did snap a photo with my phone at Argentine earlier this year.  Actually a few.  What really got my attention and caused me to take a photo was the staining on the brick and metal on the wall.  This photo happened to have the unit centered so it makes for a better presentation here.  A pretty decent photo for coming off a phone (Samsung Galaxy S-II)
