Group Description

This is a group for those who like to photograph railways at night - the best time. All I ask is that you respect the criteria for submissions, those being that the photo must have been taken between dusk and dawn.
Lately some poor shots have been submitted, and as the group expands, some photos will not make it. Please do not be disheartened, this time was just not your time. Just don't give up.
Thanks guys.

Group Rules

Hi - thanks for asking to join Night Rails. After recent controversy, I have introduced some rules.

All photos submitted must be from after dusk to just before dawn. Pics taken on 'the cusp' are acceptable as long as they are sharp and clear. If your photo is rejected, it is either a) Grainy, b) Blurry or c) Too dark. Sadly, no reasons can be given, as flickr is not set up like that - we can only approve or deny a submission. Rest assured, if your pic makes it - it is excellent and we thank you for adding to the group. If it does not - please don't give up - fiddle with your aperture size, your ISO and shutter speed etc. Practice makes perfect.
For the time being, older photos will remain in place, but a pruning will take place in the new year.

Happy night snapping!
