without getting the posts removed...So far I have seen MGs,Jaquars and International Harvestor Scout Trucks. How do I make this railroad relevant?

There is or was a magazine called Automobile Quarterly. I used to suscribe until I coudn't afford it. In many of their pictorials the cars would be photographed by old railroad stations, tracks and such. It made for a good atmosperic composition. What better place to photograph a Model A Ford station wagon than by a vintage station, preferably with trains in the photo.

You could post them on one of the model railroad forums as information for the modeler even if there is nothing railroad related in the picture. 

Sugestion "Model Railroader (General Discussion)" or "Prototype information for the modeler". 

I tried to sell my two cents worth, but no one would give me a plug nickel for it.

I don't have a leg to stand on.
