    Greetings all; here is an image I took this evening and realized it would make a neat tribute to O. Winston Link. Different railroad (although the EL was controlled by the N & W during the Dereco era), but I think it has the flavor... I will try another tomorrow with better lighting; I had to edit the background on this one to make it all black, like the night sky...

    Jim :)

    Looks nice Jim, a crescent moon would be a nice touch. And the tractor fits the current trend here.

    Jim,
    Looking good. I have to agree with Gary, a crescent moon would look great.

    Thanks guys!

    You're all right - a crescent moon is exactly what this little scene needs- that would really fill in that big blank spot. Stay tuned for another attempt.

    Neat foto.
    But I have to comment also on the buildings and vehicles. Your buildings look like they're really sitting on foundations that are really planted in the ground. And the vehicles look like the real thing, rather than toylike as so many appear.
    The entire scene is really excellent.

    That's terrific! Very much in the spirit of the original work! That blacked out sky is a clever idea.

    Thanks again, all, for the nice comments... This was just a quick shot, that begged to get this treatment...

    Val - That is awesome! Thanks for the revision!
