    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 2100 BST on Friday, August 12th and will be judged by me - cscarpenter

    In the event of this weeks winner not responding by 5 PM Sunday, August 14th a new thread will be created using the theme with the highest votes in this weeks poll.


    This weeks theme will be: "Before the Year 2000"

    Good luck to all.

    ............... and a little while later, with a maximum permitted speed of just 45mph, a trail of Limestone dust rises from the wagons on their way to Ravenscraig via Carlisle.

    In the twilight of both the 747's and the 111's careers, 111-151 trundles down the Klosterheim branch only a couple years before locomotives and n-wagen were replaced by 426s on the branch.

    Hi all, it's decision time again.
    As always you never fail to disappoint with your entries, they are all high quality shots that are, yet again, all brilliant.
    However I have to weedle out a winner so here goes.
    In 3rd Place - Craigie-C with this cracking 86, dust trailing wagon shot.
    [​IMG]
    In equal 2nd place and runner up:- DrTrenchcoat
    for these amazing shots which, while completely different, both some up the pre 2000 era perfectly.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And in 1st place & winner of week 31............................. paulc
    Just love everything about this Class 37 shot, one of the most hard working locos of all time and a stalwart of the pre 2000 era.
    [​IMG]
    Many congratulations paulc, I happily hand over the master key for you to take us all into Week 32.
    Looking forward to your choice of theme.
    Also a massive thanks to everybody who contributed for taking the time and effort to create & upload your shots.
    I personally just love seeing how you all interpret the theme of the week. Please keep it up.
    Cheers
