    This is a nice little 'nugget' of interurban history and railfan memories. Nice photos, esspecially on the Loop and they reflect the low ridership that plagued the North Shore in its final years. I like it as is - I vote to post.

    Glen,

    I could comment about the lack of technical quality in the images, like too much contrast and loss of detail, but considering the subject and age, that issue is minor. When it all comes down to it, my only concern with this essay is the small size of the images. I would prefer to see them larger.

    Overall, a nice essay on an interesting historical topic.

    Thank you for submitting this essay. I vote to approve.

    Okay, I'm a sucker for anything black and white, but Glen, you're really getting the hang of this. Again, I'm not a an interurban fan, at least I didn't think so, but this essays, and Glen's previous post is changing that. There in is why I vote to approve this work. Anytime you can put interest into the mind of someone who thinks they are not interested, you have done a good job.

    Tanks Jon, Rob, Martin and Chris. I believe the link problems are fixed.

    Martin, I used to shoot b&w all the time, but now I use a D70. Some of those shots could be seen in my submission, "Rebirth of a Historic Colorado Narrow Gauge Engine" if you can find it. I can't, can anyone tell me what happened to it?

    Yes, it looks much better now. I removed my notes regarding that issue and posted my comments on the resulting essay, now that I can see all the images.

    That essay was temporarily moved to the "Under Review" section, which is open to reviewers only. It has now been moved to into the Photo Essays section, since it got its three approvals. The same has now happened to this essay, as it also has the three thumbs up.

    Good work, Glen, and thanks again for posting these.
