Among my friends, my love of trains is well known. Heck, I even call myself Amtrak Joe and talk up Joe Biden’s awesomeness from time to time. One time, a buddy and I were at a bar and ended up sketching what a redesigned high-speed rail corridor in the Northeast would look like. So, kind reader, I am sure you wouldn’t be surprised to find out that I keep some serious tabs on the Amtrak world on the Twitter.
This week, that Am’tracking of Twitter alerted me to a blog post by Hipmunk on several Amtrak developments. What grabbed my attention was that the blog is running a “Train Trak Photo Contest.” All are open to submit their best photos of trains, stations, or yourself on a train. Ten finalists will receive a $50 Amtrak Gift Certificate, with the winner receiving a total of $150.
This is where I need your help! I have whittled down my photos of Amtrak down to four. While I realize my readership is not that high, any votes or even comments on which photo I should submit is greatly appreciated. The photos are ordered chronologically.
