    April's photo contest is going to be for any picture from your layout with a loco or rolling stock somewhere in the shot. Easy rules, the picture must be taken on your layout, module or diorama, and the picture must be take by you.

    A bonus for this month's contest winner. Not only do they get bragging rights, but their picture will appear on the next issue of the Gauge on-line magazine. Also, the top three vote getters pictures will go to the "winner's circle" album in the gallery.:thumb::thumb:

    With this in mind, you can link to a picture, but please don't just post the link if at all possible.

    Thanks, and good luck to you all.:wave::wave:

    ALCO RS2 at St-Lambert crossing on my HO layout, the Bonaventure et Chambly. Life-Like Proto 1000 customed painted for SL&C shortline. Still need to come up with an Herald.

    I'm disqualified from the contest.
    But since I like entering the contests, here's mine.
    Central New England service facility, with retro paint C44-9W, and visiting power from the west. The paint on the -9 isn't the only thing left from the New Haven. A water tower and water stand are still standing, reminders of a Golden age.

    A passenger local crosses the Sumpter Run trestle on my old N scale layout, the Poor Fork RR & Mining Co.

    I scratchbuilt the trestle from styrene strip…

    I added the smoke & steam with Adobe Photoshop…

    Ed,
    I really like the NH scheme on that C44 and I groan at any one who says, "It ain't prototypic!". Very cool.

    Switching the Georgetown Sub

    A busy un-sung hero spending the late afternoon assembling a train for one of those boastful road engines to haul from city to city.
    The loco is an 0-6-0 and is HO. I don't have any of those HO LPBs to add to the scene yet.

    My module/layout acts as a catch-all for pending projects and my diorama is a bit overused, with your permission, I consider the club layout as part of my empire, if only to run my equipment on it ;)

    Cass Scenic Railway's Ol' #5 pulls in a bulkhead flat into Theirran's Lumber at Roundtop, WV as part of it's sporatic part time work when it's not hauling tourists.

    P.S. If you look carefully you'll see that, without a little help, this train ain't goin' nowhere anytime soon ;) .
