As poor as it is, I guess this is one of my favorites... This is from the early 80's on the EJ&E near my old house in IL when I was a kid. The trains only came by back then, maybe once every three days, and usually late at night. So it was a big event to see one in the day. Those were simple times back then.

Vicguy --- The photos you posted from Jasper and Kamloops in 1997 are outstanding!  Very well chosen sites with great looking trains --- nothing less than perfection.
 
It seems that the color and resolution of most all images posted on the Internet will unavoidably be degraded, to a certain extent.  The results can vary widely from website to website, mostly related to the limitations set on the image file size.
 
I'd eventually like to see some type of standard established throughout the Interenet for posting photos to help improve the image quality. When it's possible, I'll try different settings on compression in the JPEG format and that seems to help in some cases. Usually somewhere around 50% compression seems to work best.
 
Hopefully, other members may be able to pass along the various methods they use for image posting.
 
Thanks,
 
Chuck

US Navy Railroad Pomonkey (Charles County) MD, June 2, 2003.  
A recently delivered US Army SW unit from the Aberdeen (MD) Proving Grounds is being towed from White Plains, and a connection with CSX, to the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Indian Head. To the best of my knowledge this was the last movement on this rarely used line, which is currently being threatened with abandonment and conversion to a hiking/biking trail.

Here's UP no 4848. i took dis at my fav chillin spot out in Painesville. its one of my fav shots. i got to talk to a CSX track worker and a Painesville cop that day. found out a few months ago a woman got her Ford Escort whacked by an East bound intermodal drag. knocked her car 280ft from the crossing. cop said she basically tried to drive down the tracks. he doesnt know why. i found a few car parts scattered down the line. even ran into the face of the car radio and the car's operation's manuel. anybody notice the tornado siren in the background?

I was lucky enough to be in just the right place, at just the right moment, with the camera at the ready in Durango, CO in 2002 when I captured this shot.  The crew was moving K-36 #478 around the back of the yard right past caboose 0540 and a solo box car.  It looks like a time piece that could have been any time over the last century.  I love this shot, and my wife has promised to draw it as one of her pen and ink art pieces.
 
Enjoy!

My favorite photo of one of my favorite steam locomotives.  If not for the location, this could have been sometime in the 1940's, since the "Blue Mountain & Reading" on the tender is pretty much hidden due to the angle.
