Take a look at this Pinterest Board!
Most are not trains but we could all learn lessons here. Don't be shy to post some of your favorite pictures from the page either.

A log in page keeps popping up. I don't care for sites like that.

I have been around a lot of tanks firing their main guns in my Army days, and I've NEVER seen a more accurate representation of that.
For example, here's what a real one looks like for a split second (and yes, you can see the flash with the naked eye when you're standing nearby):

NOTE: I changed the large image of the real M1A1 do to the size to a link that will take you to the picture.

Thanks Lee , I was even noticing the swirl at the barrel of the model representing the rifling.
Nice shot by the way.
