    Rules:
    - Screenshot should be in some way (can be very tenuous) linked to a theme. Otherwise anything goes.
    - You can enter up to 3 screenshots, posted as separate posts. You can delete and replace if you wish.
    - Entries to be submitted by 9pm Friday (GMT).
    - 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).

    Seeing as we are a tad late getting up & running with this weeks contest, submissions may be entered up until 21:00 GMT Friday 28th May to give you folks more time.
    This week the theme is Hard Work and will be judged by me, Craigie-C.
    Good Luck everybody.

    After a lot of hard work was put into the rebuilding process, two specially painted Norfolk Southern AC4400C6Ms are hard at work hauling a train up to the summit in Gallitzin.

    Not sure who is working the hardest 37017 or Heysham Power Station?
    Both are candidates for the Clag Of The Year Award (Twin Exhaust Category).

    For a little battery powered loco this is damned hard work, but "Hey" they were trying to help solve global warming back in 1921. l:)

    I am posting it here as it matches with the theme, but it is ment to show off the wonderful UP repaint from Chris and Jerres for the wonderful AC6000CW DTG model. Maybe they aren't great screenshots but damn this loco looks powerful Screenshot_Sherman Hill_41.30037--105.59690_12-04-25.jpg

    That's it folks, your time is up.
    I have the awful task of trying to weed out a winner from all these fantastic shots you have uploaded.
    Honestly the quality gets better every week.
    A decision has to be made, so in my Judge wig wearing mode I declare the following.
    In 3rd place:-
    cscarpenter with your wonderful little battery powered loco, I genuinely felt sorry for it, Great shot.
    [​IMG]
    P.S. I also loved your Class 37 shots as well

    In 2nd place:-
    Buynot for this fantastic shot of days gone by US steam power, you can almost smell the steam and feel the power.
    [​IMG]

    And our Champion of the week in 1st place:- Masire_
    for this excellent image of a Grange & Caledonian 812 snaking a freight train up the welsh hills.
    You really managed to capture the steep gradient and the sunlight on the bushes really did it for me.
    [​IMG]

    Congratulations Masire_ I award you the the honour of posting next weeks thread, with a theme of your choice, of which you will have the honour of selecting a winner. Good Luck :)
    Also a massive well done to everyone for all of your contributions they just keep getting better week by week, keep it up :)

    To be fair it was a quickly made free roam scenario for the purpose of the screen shot. It wasn't too bad but being honest I was only in the scenario long enough to take the shot and exit so the frame rate never came into play.

    Congratulations to the winners.
