I n plain, easy words, there is a very defini te shortage of news photographs arri v i n g here for poten tial publication. The n umber of 35mm transparencies is at times even less. On the other hand, the n umber of inquiries as to our i n te r es ts are a t an a ll-time hi gh. Yo u u ndoubtedly noticed tha t our J uly issue was void of any color photos other than the cover view. The lack of news photos in co lor was not our choice, there simply were not any t imely t ranspare n c ies on hand - remember, it mus t be newsworthy - to use when tha t iss ue was in produc tion. We've mentioned it before, b u t it appea rs time to say i t a gain. Those photographs of yours are we l come here so do not hesitate to sen d them in. Came ra Ca r material must be 8xlO b la c k and white, of course, and though we prefer tha t same size for the News Photos, we have been known to work from a I I sons of pri nt sizes a n d shapes. We require 35mm color transpare n c ies for color repro duc tion, but can reproduce color p ri n ts in black and whi te. Any thin g, a nywhere in this B i g Wes t of ours is a s ubje c t we encoura ge you to send in for consi de ra tion, but I has ten to a dd that the f iles a re already quite large on Sou thern On the other hand, they Pac ific's Ca lifornia activi ties. are e n t i rely void on such topics as the Chicago and North Wes tern's Wyomi n g tra c kage or, say, the Texas a n d Northern Ra ilway. There a re an ample n umber of railroad subjec ts that would be that p roverbial "shoe-in" for a Camera Ca r Photo Se c tion scene, bu t please don't wri te a nd ask for a l i s t. Also, do not send i n comi n g material dire c t to me, unless there is a special reason to do so. lf you enclose re turn postage and we are unable to make use of your photographs, we wi ll re turn them. Our filin g regula t ions require tha t a caption and your name and a d dress be on the back. Without this, your photograph will not even be considere d for were it used, payment is li kely to be a n impossibility. While on the genera l s ubject of rea de r part ic ipation i t is a gain time t o rem i n d many of you that your western railroading news is every bit as welcome as a re your photographs. In fac t, we urge you to con tinue to se nd in news. Our various monthly columns and s taff-genera ted arti cles a re in no way i n te n ded to replace the lon g s ta nd s tandi n g his tory of rea der-supplied ma te rial. If you ha ve not receive d a credit line, it mos t likely means you have not sen t a nything in. The topic mus t be in our rai l roadin g Wes t, of cou rse, and the i n terest must be national, in fa c t, even world wide for though we can c laim no fore i gn-language e di t i o ns or even any official translations i n to any o ther language, this ma gazine is both reg u larly retailed by dealers and rea d by subscribers i n over a dozen nations not located on the North Amer i ca n continen t, a n d no t coun tin g the reporte d sightings exis ting in the Russian la n guage. -Karl R. Koenig
