    Rules:
    - Screenshot should be in some way (can be very tenuous) linked to the 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 9:00 PM BST on Friday, June 24th and will be judged by me - cscarpenter

    In the event of this weeks winner not responding by 5 PM Sunday, 26th June a new thread will be created using the theme with the highest votes in this weeks poll.


    This weeks theme will be: Electricity.
    Feel free to interpret any way you wish, from a loco to a light bulb or a power station, let your imagination run riot.
    Good luck to all.

    This Metro-North Kawasaki M8 is about to cross over from 3rd rail to overhead lines, the first pole visible just at the end of the station.

    Same story, different place. This Class 33 - being diesel-electric itself - runs past the end of 3rd rail territory.

    Oh wow, that just screams winner, IMHO it is going to take one heck of a shot to beat it. In all my time on here, that has to be one of the best shots I ever seen, regardless of theme / thread. Well done.

    Hi all, the deadline has been reached & a decision has to be made.
    Yet again a collection of brilliant shots from all, but I have finally decided to go with :-
    In 3rd place - triznya.andras with this cracking Kawasaki M8 heading for the OHLE
    [​IMG]

    In 2nd place & runner up for this week - trainsandgames with this head on 3rd rail 379 shot.
    [​IMG]

    Finally I just had to go with this amazing shot which just captures the theme perfectly.
    Everything about this shot is superb, from the clever use of depth of field, to the centrally positioned distant class 86, the vertical OHLE posts at the perfect 90 degree angle, to me this is just the spot on all round brilliant screenshot.
    Well done Pookeyhead, I award you the honour of this weeks winner and our judge & Jury for next week.

    Would also like to include a special mention to Craigie-C for the humourous "Panto" shot.

    and to Nick-Y for this beautiful landscape perspective shot.

    A great selection of shots from all, thank you for taking the time and effort to contribute.
