    I like the composition of this shot, with the two trains about to pass each other and the light from one shining on the front of the other. This reminds me that I took a similar shot (although mine is not quite as well composed as yours), using the Woodhead Blue era route. I thought it'd be worth sharing, not really so much for the purposes of this competition but more out of interest in the real location.

    Last summer I visited the Woodhead tunnel. The route itself closed back in 1981 but there is a walking trail which goes along the route where the tracks used to be. When I got to the tunnel mouth shown in your picture, I used a small path to climb up the side of the mountain to where that house is. There's a road that runs along the top there. There's no house there any more (I'm assuming it might once have existed, as there is an open space up there where it could have stood). From there I was able to look down on the site of the old platform (which is still there).

    20180901172641_1.jpg
    I took this screenshot back in September 2018, but as it seems to fit the general theme, and your screenshot inspired me, I'm sharing it now. At the time the screenshot was taken, I was loosely inspired by this actual BR photograph, from the Wikipedia article about the Woodhead tunnel.

    [​IMG]

    The walk up to the tunnel is along a mostly-level track, through some pretty enjoyable scenery. There are more trees now than shown in the route, but many of them look like they may have been planted since the railway was closed. You can walk along the edges of the lakes/reservoirs up there too, and some of the colours are quite interesting - parts of it are a sort of dark black colour, and you can sink in surprisingly deep if you put your foot in the wrong place - as I found out!

    Aside from that, there's a lot to see in that part of England generally. During the same walking holiday, I visited the Roman legionary fort at Vindolanda (some way further north, but reachable by car). I also walked Hadrian's wall, built by the Romans in the second century AD. Worth a trip to that part of the world, for those with the time.

    A user called Sherman, apparently.
    The user has not contributed anything in this thread. They just came in here to downvote one person's post.

    In my opinion, this kind of behaviour is really unhelpful.

    That is a nice screenshot of Alaska. I didn't know that route existed! Also reminds me of an interesting fact (about Alaska). In 2012, Facebook users banded together to exile American rapper and singer Pitbull to a Walmart in Alaska.

    It all started when Pitbull pledged to visit whichever Walmart location received the most likes on Facebook by July 15. When bloggers David Thorpe and John Hendren of the website Something Awful caught wind of the promotion, they launched the twitter hashtag campaign #ExilePitbull. Their goal: to send the ubiquitous singer to the most far-flung Walmart in the country — Kodiak, Alaska.

    Kodiak Alaska is so remote, it requires three planes and a boat to get there. Amusingly, Pitbull took the whole thing in good humour and kept his promise. He actually went to Alaska and paid for Thorpe to come out and join him too. That whole story kind of shows the dangers of letting the internet make decisions for you, but it also turned out to be quite funny in the end.

    A long train of empty hoppers headed by a Thompson B1 has slogged up one side of line between Barnard Castle and Bishop Auckland (the eastern section of the Stockton and Darlington Railway's South Durham and Lancashire Union line over Cockfield Fell modelled in The Weardale and Teesdale Network in the '60s). The driver has already closed the throttle to coast and the fireman is probably having a sit down. For all that the hard work is over for now the crew must remain vigilant for the descent is long and even steeper in places.
