    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 UTC on Friday, September 16th and will be judged by me - Pookeyhead

    In the event of this weeks winner not responding by 5 PM Sunday, September 17th, a new thread will be created using the theme with the highest votes in this weeks poll.


    I have decided to go with one of the themes from last week's back up poll: This weeks theme will be: "Night"

    Good luck to all.

    Funny story, I`m actually sat at Weaver Junction waiting for the emergency brakes to release as I was too busy composing a screenshot to notice the AWS alarm was active for the junction approach control, the boss will not be happy.

    Apologies for not doing this last night, but I didn't get home until quite late.
    Ok... so many interesting images. Why did I pick this theme? :)

    Here we go.
    In Third Place: I'm a railfan obviously and his wonderfully atmospheric shot from the West Rhine line.
    [​IMG]


    In Second Place:
    NEC Railfan. A really great atmosphere to this shot, and the lighting is great.
    [​IMG]


    And in First Place: paulc and this great night time scene. I thought it was a great location for a night time shot with the track side lighting and there's just enough residual ambient light to convey darkness without any complete blackout areas. I love it.
    [​IMG]

    Well done everyone. Lots of entries this week, and pretty much every shot was good. I'm glad I picked this theme now. Really interesting images from all.
    So over to you paulc. I wonder what theme you will choose :)
