Yes indeed, February 2012 marks ten years for the RR-L Forums. Over those ten years, thousands upon thousands of great photographs have appeared in our threads. I thought that we would devote this month's Photo Gallery to look back on the best of those photos.

For this to work, we need your help.


Take this month to go back over Memory Lane and post any photos you think merit a viewing here in our 10th Anniversary Photo Gallery. Those photos might capture a great piece of modeling, or might rise above others because of the composition and mood of the photo itself. When you find it, try to mention who posted the photo and when it was posted. Hey, you can even post a favorite photo or two that you originally posted here.

For newer members of the forum, this is a great time to go back over past threads to search out these photos. You will see the some familiar names of members who are still active on the forum, and you will see names that you don't recognize. Sadly, you will also see names of members who have passed on. You will also find way too many photos no longer appear in their original threads. These photos were hosted on another site and they have either been deleted from that site or the links have changed. That is why we prefer members to upload their photos to our own Forum!

To help you get started, I will provide some links to great collections of photos here on the forum. But, as you will know, there are terrific photos buried in almost every thread we have.

You might want to start out by looking at past Photo Galleries. Here is the link to all of our past monthly collections: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8455

Our group challenges are also a good place to look. Here is a link to many of those challenges: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=26868

As I said earlier, you can find great photos everywhere on the Forum.


The only restriction on photos this month is that they must already be found here on the forum.

Okay, to kick us off and to break the barrier of posting one of your own photos, here is one that I first posted in a monthly Photo Gallery back in August 2003. I just like the mood that it captures.

Bruce, great topic.
I hope it encourages our members to dig through the forums looking for the many gems that have been posted in the past.
Don't forget to look through the archived forums too.
And to reiterate what Bruce said, please upload your pictures directly to the forums server.
It's not hard to do and we're here to help.
Also give credit to the photographer if you didn't take the picture.



My all time favorite model posted on the RR-Line Forums is Chuck Doan's machine shop.
There are many pictures posted and it was hard to pick just one.
I choose this one because it shows off Chuck's awesome skills in modeling and photography and it shows the infamous broom.

Great topic to choose, but there is just way too many to pick from. Here is my start. A picture posted by Rick in 08 Waterfront of a Bar Mills waterfront.

Lou, I'm hoping that members won't limit themselves to just one or two.

Hey Bruce, I guess you noticed I put one post per page on these photo galleries. But, not this time.
And of course we have this members outstanding work.

Thanks Rick and Karl! I wonder what ever happened to that broom?

This should be a great topic Bruce!

Tom Johnson's backdrops certainly are jaw-dropping, but it's his modelling of fallen leaves around the front property that inspire me! (Photo originally posted by Tom Johnson.)



And...how about the ubiquitous general store. Tom's version is tops in my book! (Photo originally posted by Tom Johnson.)

Now that, Dave, is the chicken's way out.

Over the years, Troels has posted numerous photos of his great lighthouse. Among my favorites is this one.



Troels originally posted it on page 24 of Coast Line Vol. 3, Oct. 2010.

You've stolen me this idea, Bruce...
By the way, fantastic subject, indeed.

I hope it is OK to choose two photos. The first is from Martin's waterfront layout.



The second is from Verne's desert latout.



Two wonderful layouts with totally different geography.

This is already, birthday cake for the eyes!
Happy tenth anniversary Railroad Line Forums!

While there are so many inspiring models on the forum, one of my favorite modelers is my friend,Lance Russwurm or DaVinci1953.
As many of you may already know, Lance is a professional artist.
When Lance turns his attention to our hobby & photography magic happens.
Like these photo's of his Bleeker Street Diorama, in day or night his work, is simply fantastic!
Lance also loves my puns.
