I Love a Mystery Photo Contest! (Transit Trivia #3)

Monday, October 14, 2013 12:29 PM | Ed Graziano (Administrator)

(This contest has ended, but you can read the answers here.)

We all love a mystery, don’t we? But our readers especially seem to like our mystery photo contests, so we thought we would try another one. This time, we have upped the ante with 15 new puzzlers for your consideration.

As usual, the entrant with the best overall submission will be the winner. Please get your submissions in by midnight (Central time) Monday, October 21, 2013.

The winner gets a copy of the CERA book A Rainbow of Traction.

Some of you seem to prefer writing about your guesses on public forums. You do so at your own risk. You might just provide another entrant with the winning answer.

Good luck figuring out our puzzlers, which are all from the Chicago area this time.
