    I only know about two shots of mine that qualifies, and the other one is terrible.
    This is from Daily Grind Over the Pass, near the end, descending from Truckee towards Reno & Sparks.
    Memories from five years ago :)

    It can be anything. Signalling failure.. motive power failure needing to be dragged... derailments... glitches or errors in the game itself.. anything :) ... Even fashion failures when the AI decides to dump someone in 1950s clothing in a 21st century scenario... literally anything.

    I usually delete those :) Anyway, for momentum's sake, here is that other one.
    I hope people returned from the sea to sweetwater and ready to share their much better ones :)

    "The stupid air pump quit again! What now?"
    ATSF Northern #2921 is extra cranky this morning, as her crew is forced to deal with a faulty air compressor in the midst of the Los Angeles morning rush. The train is scheduled to depart in just a few short minutes. A small crowd of onlookers have gathered to watch the crew members scramble to find a solution.

    How many blokes does it take to solve a signal issue?
    One up the ladder on the signal doing the actual work, 4 spotters (2 at either side of the bridge who are not visible here) and 5 standing around watching, nattering or checking their watches.

    Due to OHLE failures between Doncaster and York on the ECML, services are being rerouted via Leeds. This however creates a problem. There are not enough GNER HST units available to cover services over the diversion route across the non-electrified Leeds line so class 67s have been drafted in to pull the GNER IC225 units between Leeds and York and vice versa.
    Here we see EWS 67022 and GNER 91103 'County of Lincolnshire' passing Neville Hill TMD on the York-Leeds line so it is able to continue the service northwards to Edinburgh.

    Is there something about these Class 42 Warships? This one has had to be recovered from Teignmouth and is continuing the rest of it's service courtesy of a well worn but reliable Class 9F.

    The update to the Wherry Lines V2 with improved level crossing gates, causes a major failure for the OTS Harrogate Loop routed trains.

    OK.... well... this wasn't easy. SO many great entries that dealt with the theme brilliantly. Been visiting this thread on and off since 5pm trying to work this out, and I've arrived at the following.

    In 3rd place: With a brilliant Pendolino drag image, is cscarpenter.
    [​IMG]
    I loved fact that everything is virgin colours, and of course, the Vulcan Productions class 57 is brilliant and I'm so pleased someone used these assets in this thread. Well done.

    2nd Place: malakhit with his landslide image.
    [​IMG]
    Love the lighting and great use of depth of field. It's horrible to use in game, but when done right, it works really well for screenshots, and this image is a great example.

    1st place: Blazin with his West Somerset Railway image.
    [​IMG]
    I loved everything about this. The lighting, and atmosphere, the colours.. the composition... the correct numbering for the loco. Even the typical British workman getting his priorities right (cup of tea) LOL. Super screenshot.

    Well done all. They were all excellent, and it really was a nightmare to judge.
    Over to you Blazin. I look forward to seeing what theme you choose!
