    - Previous week's winner to decide winner (can't enter themselves).

    Does it have to be BR Blue, or just any blue?

    A Bit of Blue anything and any shade of.
    I thought it would offer a wide variety of interpretations. This comp is not as rigid and serious as the official comp.

    All down to personal interpretation. Personally I quite enjoy tenuous links. As long as you can justify your screen shot being somehow 'a bit of blue' then you'll be fine. Being honest people are very unlikely to challenge anything.

    Wondered if you would spot it? LOL,
    It most certainly is, and might I say most enjoyable. I do admit I did have the cheek to swap out the 73 for the MKS super duper reskin version but I know you can't upload that version to the worshop, so in answer to your question it is a big YES. :)

    Glad you enjoyed it (it was just something I quickly threw together). The other day I dramatically decided to delete all my workshop items from the past eight or so years as many of them were terrible. Slowly making and publishing new and better ones now.

    That 50 looks incredible.

    You beat me to it, LOL and granted the AP50 is a stunning piece of kit I personally went for the AP MK2 b coach set throughout but have to admit I give way to your shot, absolutely perfect.

    Figured I'd throw my hat in the ring for one of these unofficial contests this week.
    Here, we see a C&O passenger train, headed up by a pair of E8 units rolling through the Waterton Station, past the nearby yard and roundhouse for the RW&A.
    Route Used: RWA Lakeside
    Locomotive Used: C&O EMD E8

    Amazing, pookey, just like an old photo.

    That would make a fantastic postcard.

    Sorry, only just saw this... didn't get a notification for some reason. It's cool, yes.. it's a ReShade plug in, so I can actually play the game looking like that... at 12fps LOL. It's a bit over the top, but interesting.

    Congrats on the win Pookeyhead, and if I can't have the winning entry then it's a close second to have something I made for the sim front and centre in the winning entry. Really enjoyed doing the 86s tbf, even if the cast numbers were an absolute pig.

    A great livery for a great loco.

    Right. Well then... what shall we have for the next week's theme?
    "Seeing Red"
    You
    can interpret it as you wish - no link too tenuous... so long as it exists.
