***Mini Challenge #532*** "Trains/Train Tracks"

The Mini-Challenge begins .01/07/20197 and ends at 01/14/19

The Theme is any photo of Train/Trains and or Train Tracks

Please:
1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or as many Exhibits as you wish.
2. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera, including cell phones, and may have been taken at any time.
3. There are no restrictions on processing or on composite shots - all are acceptable. It's the image that counts, not how it was produced.
4. Please state very clearly in the header of your post whether an image is an "Entry" or an "Exhibit". Non-labelled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.
5. Please post all Entries and Exhibits using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post. Comments can be made directly to the Entry or Exhibit post.
6. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries in a separate RESULTS thread, and I may select some of the exhibits, for Honorable Mentions.
The "lucky" First Place winner has the dubious honor of hosting of the next challenge. If the winner doesn't respond post a new Challenge within 3 days of the date results are posted; or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.

Re: ***Mini Challenge #532*** "Russia" (exhibit)

Sochi 1965

This shot was taken 1965 in Sochi (Russia) with a Minox-B with 11 x 8 mm slide film. My father took me with him on a business trip. The Minox film area correlates with the todays 1 inch sensor, the progress in technology is visible.

Nick should know more about this kind of train.

Train Ride from Aguas Calientes to Urubamba

Returning from Machu Picchu to Cusco on the Vista Cruise Train

Entry #1  Waiting For the train

Exhibit #1   Enroute entertainment  (Fashion show)

Entry #2    Part of the enroute entertainment. I have no clue as to what this dude represents.

It was a very interesting train ride from Machu Picchu back to Cusco. They had this dude dancing in the aisles, followed by a fashion show. All of the clothing modelled was (of course) for sale.

Hopefully a train from the inside counts for this challenge.
