    As usual I'm bad at following rules so I'm just posting once. In my book, the above shots already won :)

    1) This dusk shot from the NJCL was well received when I first posted it, but it was a while ago and not here, so...
    20210405110630 - WS - NJ Transit 2611 (GWD318) - Scenery - Cloudy Fall Dusk.jpg
    2) I really just find this one curious. From my pool to share later. I remember taking ages to optimize the angle.
    20210403114538 - QD - Hoboken to Bay Head - EMD GP40PH-2B NJT - Clear Fall Day.jpg
    3) There is a well hidden train in this shot, I tell you, on its way to Wearhead.
    20210516112449 - FR - Durham to Wearhead - Scenery - Clear Summer Day.jpg
    ps) There really is

    Another week has passed and again we see beautiful pictures. As always, the decision is difficult. Well, here are the places 3 to 1.

    [​IMG]
    3rd place goes to cscarpenter , nice shot of a Stanier Mogul on Western Lines of Scotland.

    [​IMG]
    2nd place goes to Nick Y , nice shot of the Class 185 in the water on the Doncaster-Leeds-York route.

    [​IMG]

    First place goes to Craigie-C with a nice shot of the vR E03 (Pro Line) with the TEE (Trans Europe Express). I still know the original, I'm just an old dog....
    Here we go Craig, you're on....

    Yahoo!!! thanks Joerg.
    Must admit I have a major soft spot for the TEE it was my first HO scale model train that I acquired in a car boot sale (LIMA brand) and started me off on all things DB. I have since got rid of the LIMA model & replaced with far superior ROCO. Just love the older DB stock.
    More to the point, dragging myself back on thread, next weeks comp is up and running.

    I have chosen the theme "Sunrise / Sunset"
    Good luck to all

    Thanks :)
    Initial hunting for nice angles evolves into finding nice and/or interesting views. It enriches the game a lot.
