Welcome to the Photo Gallery for May 2004. For this month's theme, we take our inspiration from Drew's photo of the same title, "Highballin."

The word itself conjures up many photographic possibilities for both model railroaders and railfans. Everything from signals at a station or junction to monster steamers speeding across open prairies.

So let's see the drama of "highball" railroading. Model or prototype. Trains blasting through a crossing or struggling upgrade. Even trains in the yard awaiting a "highball" signal or on the siding while waiting for a priority fast freight to clear.

As always, photos submitted must be no larger than 80KB in file size and should not be larger than 7" in width to prevent scrolling. Photos exceeding the size limits will be resized by the Moderator.

I am glad the month of towers is over for now I can post some more pictures from Alaska.

Here is a picture of 2 color matched FP7s as they roll the Denali Express through the interior in the summer of 1981.

Steve Andereggen's G scale Alaska Railroad train in the snows of Oregon in 2004.
He had to quit running the train as the snow was falling faster than the little plow could remove it.
