The date for this year’s DINA event is April 16, 2016. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate, but come rain or shine (or whatever crazy weather comes your way), get out there during the 24-hour period of April 16 and shoot your favorite road, location, locomotive, station, railroader, signal, and more. Be sure to select your three (3) favorite images and send them to Railroads Illustrated, 14512 NW 73rd Street, Parkville, MO 64152, by June 1, 2016. Publication will be in the 2016 annual.
If you would like to digitally submit your images, contact the editor for easy FTP upload instructions. While we do accept email submissions, receiving so many large files tends to bog down the inbox.
Hey! Did you shoot any railroad images on May 23 last year?
That was Day in North America 2015 and you still have time to submit those images for consideration. This year’s annual will feature both 2015 and 2016 images combined.
