    Apologies for the late reply and judging of this weeks competition.
    It's a tough one this time (it usually is) as there's some amazing shots.

    Here's my choices for the winners:
    In 3rd place: paulc with his shot 66711 on an aggregate run during a heavy shower.
    [​IMG]

    Joint 2nd place: Craigie-C with the NSE class 411
    [​IMG]
    and the P&T tamping machine DR73101
    [​IMG]

    And finally, in 1st place and the person who gets the honours to judge the next unofficial screenshot contest is: cscarpenter with his very wet Alexandra dock yard and the class 37s (got to love a good class 37 image).
    [​IMG]

    Congratulations to the winners and thank you for entering this week.
    Also, it was a close run thing as this image of 2 freight locos on the WCML north by cscarpenter deserves a special mention as it was this or the actual winning image above.
    [​IMG]

    I now hand over the master key to cscarpenter and look forward to seeing what the subject will be this week.
