    - 3rd party content / Reshades / Reskins etc. are welcomed but are not mandatory.
    - Previous week's winner to decide winner (can't enter themselves).

    Ok, so since my initial theme doesn't seem to be doing too hot, I've decided to change the theme to mainlines. Hopefully this encourages more entrants!

    They just conspired for me to take 1st, 2nd and 3rd place all at once! :D
    (Or I pulled some strings to ensure no one else can post. You'll never know!)
    Highball was fine, there wasn't much activity in the official screenie thread the last day or two either.
    I hope everyone is busy planning their shots. It would be neat if some route actually had a high ball. Or a balloon (Pacific Surfliner). Or a signalman waving a green lamp / board to wave a train off, we still have this tradition in my country.

    Well this competition started out slow, but we got plenty of good submissions this week! So, without further ado, here's my top 3 picks for the week!

    In 3rd, we have triznya.andras with some vintage Pennsy action on the NEC

    20200407080258 - WS - South Amboy Local - PRR GG1, 1949 Autumn.jpg

    In 2nd, we have cscarpenter with a nice shot of a class 91

    20211014141151_1.jpg

    And in 1st place, we have Matthew Wilson with their shot of a busy 1980's London. I'm a sucker for photo recreations, so I just had to choose this as #1!

    20211013020903_1.jpg

    Great submissions this week, everyone!

    OOh thanks very much for the win, I wasn't really expecting it but I enjoy the challenge of recreating real-life events where possible. Now, to choose a topic for the next competition, my choice of theme is.......

    Monochrome - subject matter can be anything you choose, but the end result must be in black & white.

    Congratulations, it was indeed a great shot or a lovely scene.
    That scene would be a slideshow on my PC, but it's for shooting anyway, right? :)

    ps.: Are you creating the thread or would you like someone to do it?

    Congratulations Matthew, superb shot, as you say could have been copied from a real life photograph.
