    Part of my logic here is that I'd like to see a lot more of these type of threads...

    Maybe instead, a "Show me your..." sub-forum to group them all together where they're easy to find.
    Your point is well taken!

    Yeah, I agree with TD. Thats why we have tags. But, if you have something you'd like to show, do a quick search of the forum for a "show us your ___ " thread and post it. I like the subforums, but, then again, we have the admin saying we have too many subforums.

    I'm pretty sure it was used in the first Transformers movie but I can't seem to find the clip anywhere at the moment.

    Here goes TD with another new thread section! lol
    I agree TD it should be a sub forum maybe of just general rail section?
    I think this web site could be a bit more sectioned off more work for some but super easy to find stuff!

    For the record, I'm more against the proliferation of too many stickies, than I am for a subforum. I just couldn't think of a better answer.

    Seems on reflection that these 'show us your' threads belong in different forums (rollingstock, power, scenery, etc.) so a single subforum wouldn't work.

    I like the idea of a tag that's common to all the threads so they can easily be found using the tags. That's really the sort of thing tags are for.

    I wish I wouldn't keep forgetting to use them!

    My favorite, now a very popular walkway in Poughkeepsie. Set many world records when built and now is the longest pedestrian bridge in the world.

    Thanks! I was up very early in the morning for that shot, with my oldest son who has always been an early riser (not me though). Every now and then, the Hudson River is perfectly calm and you can get that shot.

    Here's another. This is Young's High Bridge, at Tyrone, KY (near Versailles). Built in 1889. Unlike the nearby (and more famous) High Bridge, this one was never upgraded or reinforced, and the last train ran on it in 1985. Efforts are underway to preserve the bridge, as a rails-to-trails conversion or some form of park.

    The industry on the right, at the West end of the bridge, is the Wild Turkey distillery.









    And a bonus shot. Don't see many of these on this side of the Atlantic. This is "The Castle". It was once a private residence, but has been converted into a very expensive Bed & Breakfast.

    Which little spot was that... on my Concept 3 plan? It would be a nice signature piece.

    There's an interesting story behind that castle. Apparently the original owner had it built for his wife... who left him. Then he sold it to a guy in Florida or somewhere, who wouldn't do anything with it for years and years. A few years ago, he finally sold it to some folks who remade it into the B&B. It caught fire and burned to the ground while under construction.

    If you're into horses, that castle is just down the street from both Keeneland race course and Calumet Farm.

    No, I don't think so. It's open for business now. Apparently the new name is "Castle Post".

    The old Milwaukee Road bridge at Rosalia, Washington. This bridge spans a road and prior to October, 1980, also spanned the BN branch that I am modeling.

    Here are a few pictures of CSX's double track bridge over the Occoquan River in Woodbridge, VA that I took yesterday while fishing. I'm not sure what style it is (camelback maybe? ) but it has plate girder leads on both ends. The bridge next to it is Rt. 95.

    Here is my own picture of the stone arch bridge in Minneapolis. Me and my dad took a little detour coming back from the train sale in ST.paul!
