2020 TSG Photo CallThe BRS Publications Committee is looking for contemporary (last two years) photographs for the outer an inner covers of the 2020 edition of the Canadian Trackside Guide.

Preference for the outside front cover is a striking colour slide or high-resolution digital image (tif or jpeg format) of a current “Canadian locomotive or train in a vertical format”, or a horizontal image that would, with cropping, lend to a vertical format measuring 5-1/2 x 8-1/2”. Preference for the inside covers and the back cover is for horizontal images of current Canadian locomotives or railway equipment.

At a minimum, please include locomotive type, equipment number(s), date and place of photo and any other information relevant to the subject matter.

Photographic categories are:

  1. Class 1 Locomotives
  2. Industrial and Shortline Locomotives
  3. VIA Rail Locomotives and Passenger Equipment
  4. Traction/Preserved Equipment
  5. Work Equipment

Please submit entries no later than December 14, 2019, by one of two methods

  1. By Mail: “Cover Contest”, Bytown Railway Society, PO Box 47076, Ottawa Ontario, K1B 5P9. Please submit digital images on a CD or USB flash drive, or
  2. By email: to tsg at bytownrailwaysociety dot ca .  

There is a limit of 25 entries per contributor. Ensure all entries are identified with: category, location, date, photographer's name, as well as the name and address of the sender. Please indicate if we may retain unused images for potential use in Branchline magazine. Upon request, submitted materials will be returned.
