GTL = Guess The Location.....A bit of a "guessing" game I've been "running" here on this forum and a bunch of other forums. Check it out, it can be fun!

Oh, I did. Most of the sites are east coast. That doesn't work as I am Midwest.

Understood completely, Roger!
 
I feel the same way with "flatlands" stuff, but given enough good clues, I can usually get pretty close. That, and it helps me learn about parts of the country (and the railroad) that I would otherwise never have known about.
 
I try to jump around and find places all over a given RR's area when I post pics, because you don't often know where people might be "playing" from.
 
Please feel free to post some Midwest stuff along with some good (but not to obvious) clues, and let's all learn more about YOUR part of the NYC System in the process!
