I have noticed that for the last couple of months we have had some entries in the photo contest of "real" trains.. you know, the kind we ride on/in, they haul freight and stuff... and are decidedly larger than "G scale".

I was under the impression that the contest was for Large Scale Model trains. The impetus being our creative attempts to produce as "realistic" an image as we can. I think it's a bit easier to create a realistic image when photographing a real train.. (note the usage of the word "real" and it's derivative "realistic" in the same sentence there).

So... question... are we allowing "non-model images" in the contest? I read through the "contest guidelines" and it doesn't state anything either way, just that you need to register and vote once..

I'm good either way, I'd just like some clarification.

There are some good photos but yes there are a few photos of actual life size trains. I just ignore the photos that would not apply to the contest but others may not know.

Therea are a set of rules somewhere it also states that you can not use heavily photoshoped photos but you can superimpose displays in the realworld.

Some examples of real trains that should not be allowed

Of course if the rules have changed then thats fine.

I agree that the contest should be for G Scale only, not real equipment. However - I haven't seen the full set of rules displayed anywhere.
I do recall reading them one time, but haven't found the link since the site changed. Anyone know the link to the rules, cause all I see are guide lines for entering the contest , and they are sparce.
