How it works..

In this thread a person asks to see something, related to model railroading of course, and the first person to respond by posting a picture that contains what the person asks for then immediately says "Show Me Something"..................

That person can ask to see, for example, a certain color.. or a shape such as something round or square. They could ask to see something patriotic, or something angry or happy or sad. They may ask to see something educational or inspiring or scary. The request should be one word, such as "Show Me Something Humorous"

Particpants in the thread should give others a chance to join in. For instance, let several requests/replies go by before jumping back in after you've participated UNLESS the thread drops off the first or second page and you'd like to bring it back. In that case it would be fine to answer again.

Please..., NO LINKS to a picture on another website somewhere. The answer MUST be posted in your reply. If a participant does that it should be ignored and another person can reply.

There may be times when two or more people reply at the same time. Any reply should be done to the FIRST person.

Edit;


1 Hour Rule

Guys, we're going to have to institute a time limit on replies to a request to keep things from bogging down . From this point on if there as been no reply to a request within 1 hour of it being made the person making the request has to make another. If not, and we all have lives to lead and can't be here 24/7.... it's anybodies turn. I have a feeling that is what's happening, a person makes a request and has to leave for whatever reason, no reply is given and the thread, as I said, bogs down.

Duplicate requests

It is perfectly fine to request something that has already been asked for, eg. anyone can request a turntable shot even though it was requested earlier. Hopefully the person that replied to the earlier request won't answer thus giving someone else a chance. Of course it would be ideal not to have duplicates but there are a lot of different turntable shots out there we haven't seen.

I figured since I just posted #30 on the "Counting with Trains" topic I might as well post the same #30 here too!

How about show me a 4-6-6-4 or larger then...

I use this ath BB loco as my 'Demonstrator of Detailing' to make it more authentic to the prototype. I leave this one as pictured to show folks what some of the things I add to detail locomotives.

Sorry if anyone dislikes my additional post, so I will honor the request once more..

Please show a locomotive with details added for realism.
