    Rules:
    - Screenshot should be in some way (can be very tenuous) linked to a theme. Otherwise anything goes.
    - You can enter up to 3 screenshots, posted as separate posts. You can delete and replace if you wish.
    - 3rd party content / Reshades / Reskins etc. are welcomed but are not mandatory.
    - Previous week's winner to decide winner (can't enter themselves).
    - The winner chooses the new theme for next week (and becomes the new judge).

    Entries will close at 20:00 GMT on Friday 1st October and will be judged by me- duchess33
    In the event of this weeks winner not responding by 9PM Sunday 3rd October a new thread will be created using the theme with the highest votes in this weeks poll.

    This weeks theme will be: Under the Wires

    Good luck everyone!

    An East Midlands Trains Class 222 'Meridian' departs Matlock Bath station about to pass under the Heights of Abraham cable car before terminating at Matlock.
    Screenshot_Just Trains - Midland Main Line_53.12342--1.55717_10-24-13.jpg
    This was a special service put on by EMT for the Royal visit to Matlock by HRH Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Phillip on the 10th July 2014 as the Royal Train could not go down the Derwent Valley Line.
    This scenario is available to play as part of JT Derwent Valley Line extension to the MML Derby-Sheffield.

    I had the idea last time we had this theme. Sadly someone beat me to it then.

    under the wire us
    Just in time: “Nancy mailed off her application, and it got in just under the wire.”
    From horse racing, in which the wire marks the finish line. (Dictionary.com)
    20210427182504_1.jpg
    The good people of Lymington trust the Lymington Flyer to arrive at the pier smack on time, and with seconds to spare it does not let them down, making it just under the wire.
    Loco:- AP South West Trains Class 411
    Route:- South West Mainline / Southampton - Bournemouth

    Headlights ablaze, LMS Jubilee Class 5573 races towards York with a railtour underneath the telegraph wires which are barely visible with the smoke and the trees.
    Thought I might as well join the Harrogate Loop Appreciation Society, and jolly well pleased I did.

    So there was lots of great entries this week with a few of you thinking outside the box. However...

    The results are in....

    So in 3rd place (which could have easily been 2nd)...

    We have NickFarrant with not one, but two GC HSTs, a brilliant shot of the two passing and a throwback to the time when they did run these services.

    In 2nd place we have...

    Nick Y with a clever take on the 'Under the wires theme. Really liked this one and it did remind me of the many times I have been to the Heights of Abraham.
    upload_2021-10-1_20-26-14.png

    Finally in 1st we have....

    Craigie-C with his shot of a Network Rail 31 and Tamper. Loads going on in this photo which really does bring the lineside to life in T.S
    upload_2021-10-1_20-31-48.png

    So congrats to Craigie-C Nick Y and NickFarrant. Well done to everyone else, it was very hard to choose a top 3!
    I now hand over the controls to Craigie-C and I wish you all good luck for next weeks competition.
