    Yes sir, it went right down to the wire, but Dan Crowley took first place, and Kettlestack came in just one vote behind.:thumb::thumb:

    There were a lot of good, no, great shots entered this time and I'm pleased that everyone that entered got at least one vote. A very impressive bunch of photos, everyone that entered should be proud.:D:D

    Thanks to all that took the time to vote, and to those that were willing to share by entering.:wave::wave::wave::wave:

    i went digging though the thread to find the pictures to look at, and Dan Crowley, your image link is dead... could you re-upload it and post it in here so we can all take another peak at it?

    Dan, that was fabulous. I probably overstepped my bounds, but I've had your picture as my wallpaper for a week or so.

    As far as I am concerned anything I post on the web is public domain. The fact you are using a picture as wallpaper is very flattering.

    I am a long time N scaler. Anything that I post will always be an N scale model or scene.

    Thanks for the praise.

    Lynn,

    Since Dan's picture is lost, would you mind reposting it from your wallpaper?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I need it since I cannot post it in the Winner's circle in the Gallery until I have a copy.

    This does fortify the fact that I think it is best to upload all your pics to the Gauge rather than relying on a third party to host them. Do both if you wish, but uploading them here insures that they will be the right size for viewing and will not get lost.:cool:

    I found the same picture on my website, but unfortunately my server is having problems today. I'll get a copy to you.

    Dan,
    Was looking at the photo on my lunch hour and a couple of my co-workers asked if the picture was taken in Canada or Alaska. They thought I was kidding when I told them it was a model. In fact one of them swears he saw the same photo on a calendar someplace!! I have to admit I couldn't tell it was N, without you telling. My first guess was HO, mighty fine modeling Sir!! :thumb: :thumb:

    Congrats Dan on a very well deserved win for such a superb bit of modeling.
    Frankly, mine had nothing like the detail (or effort) you must have put into yours.

    All the others had something of interest to me that warrants a big thank you to all of you for posting your pics. :thumb: :thumb:

    I'm enclosing a bottle of best Scottish Whiskey for all of you to share for your efforts :D :D
