    I think this is a fine essay, a fine essay indeed. Rather than focusing on the obvious, railfan-oriented photographs, he instead captures the mood and feel of the place. The writing is well done and very personal, the design supurb (although the typeface is a bit defaulty).

    I love it. No question that this should be approved. Great photography, and interesting, relevant text.

    My complaints are very minor. First, in a case such as this where we have to close one browser window and open another, I don't like the text carrying over to the next page in the middle of the sentence. When I open the new page, I have to stop and think back to what the first part of the sentence said. The last few pages where each page started a new paragraph were much easier to read. I don't think this needs revision, just something to keep in mind next time.

    The other thing is I'm not sure what sarcasm has to do with the picture of the blue flags. The caption just doesn't make any sense to me.

    Other than that, it'll make a great addition to the site.

    This is a well done piece featuring good design, text and photos. Let's get it 'on the air'.

    Well done Alex!

    Thanks for the comments, guys. Just something old I thought I'd throw together.

    Good stuff. For once I like the lack of any people as the absense of humanity is what really gives this essay the forlorn look and feel.

    A good job of illustrating a different point of view.

    Great essay. The writing is superb and the black and white photography is a big plus, as it sets the mood for the essay. The only thing I don't like is how the page ends in the middle of the sentence.
