    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 23rd and will be judged by me - PaulC

    In the event of this weeks winner not responding by 5 PM Sunday, September 25th, 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: "Engineering/Unusual workings"

    Good luck to all.

    Route: Dresden-Leipzig. Train: CD 162.
    Not sure if it counts but it is a unique train heading for Leipzig led by a czech locomotive subsituting for a failed DB BR 155. (I love czech locomotives, their sound is beautiful). Its not a very common occurence considering its going trough germany. *inspired by youtube thumbnails* Screenshot_Bahnstrecke Leipzig-Dresden _51.35756-12.60571_12-16-10.jpg

    Screenshot_Clinchfield Railroad - Elkhorn City to St Paul_37.29883--82.31882_10-51-13.jpg Since DTG seems to forget about official contest, I may consider starting to post in this one.. Hopefully it counts
    (Fictional) So here we have UP and BNSF SD40's on Clinchfield Railroad hauling mixed freight as bad weather is causing odd diversions.

    The same train as in my previous picture but this time with a view of "59 005 Kenneth J Painter". So much nostalgia. Screenshot_Chatham Main & Medway Valley Lines_51.20852-0.40424_12-10-58.jpg
