Weekly Challenge #505 - Trains and train stations
Posted By: Hattifnatt, 4 Days Ago

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #505 - TRAINS AND TRAIN STATIONS

Thanks Adrian for an interesting challenge last week and to all who participated.

This challenge is about trains and train stations. Outside, inside, above, below - everything goes as far as there is something related to a train (or a train station) in it.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

The Challenge will run until midnight next Friday, August 7, whichever time zone you are in.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Read more at the previous challenge: Weekly challenge # 504 - "Night Outside"

Some examples from my own photos below. I don't have so many train pictures so I'm waiting for yours!

I don't have a lot of these, so this is my personal favorite of my own pics. I wonder what Stephen of Hampshire will bring to this one, he's definitely my favorite train photographer.

In the words of the great Johnny Cash. I hear that train a coming, coming round the bend. I believe this is the only train image I have. I liked the leading lines as I crossed the tracks (yes the train is parked).

I do not have (a lot of) great train photos.
I can offer this one though. This is a boxcar that was used during WW2 between the Netherlands and the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Yes it could be an easy winner to pick for the host.
I nearly didn't bother to enter!

Aye that’s why I threw in a Ferrari to try and balance up the odds...

These days some trains go even faster than Ferraris!
