It is May 1st, and time to open a new photo Gallery! I thought that it was about time to have our always popular B&W theme. Photos can be taken with your digital camera in B&W mode, they can be scans of old B&W photos, or they can be color photos that have been modified with your favorite photo software. “Toned” photos (sepia, duotone, etc.) will also be accepted. Finally the subjects of the photos can be either prototype or model.

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page).

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

Okay, fellow forum members, let's see what you can do in B&W.

Ahh.... one of my favorite themes, Bruce! Good choice!

Well, I'll start it off.

Here's Osage Valley Tie & Lumber's old work train crossing the long trestle on Miller's Creek.

Nick & Mike,

Two outstanding photos to start the month off. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who likes to look of B&W photos.

I also enjoy taking prototype photos in B&W -- expecially of a vintage piece of equipment such as this Sperry Railcar (ex - LV doodlebug). This was taken in Hillburn, NY in 2005.

That's quite alright , Chuck , my pleasure ! I like to look at it every so often to remind myself that you are mortal after all . Then I look at the rest of your work and conclude that the broom must have been the work of the devil . ( Don't worry , folks , I don't know what I'm on about either ).

Mic, the file name is the problem with your Strite Tractor photo. It contains an ampersand (&). Rename the photo file so there is no ampersand (or other punctuation/symbols) and repost it. It should be okay then. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I love B&W photos of model railroads, they look so much more real.

Here are some I did of my layout, some may have been posted before, sorry.
