2023 TSG Photo Call

The BRS Publications Committee is looking for recent photographs (last two years) for the outer and inner covers of the

2024 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 itself to a vertical format measuring 5-1/2 x 8-1/2”. Preference for the inner covers and the outer 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 15, 2023. 

By mail: “Cover Photos,” Bytown Railway Society, PO Box 47076, Ottawa, Ontario  K1B 5P9. Please submit digital images on a CD or USB flash drive. 

By email: tsg @ bytownrailwaysociety dot ca. Please indicate “Cover Photos” in the subject line.

There is a limit of 25 entries per contributor. All entries must be 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. If you submit any image with a suggested cropping, please also include the unaltered original.
