.....how about this? Somewhere between 2nd and 3rd causeways. I wasn't even going to bother, after seeing the above!

Cheers all, great stuff, I really enjoy looking at all the great shots from just about everywhere......Rickhttp://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a616/rickf77/rickf77_20140715_0000.jpg~original

BR 61933 acts as substitute for a K4 on the Jacobite to Mallaig. The K3 has managed to traverse Scotland in the few weeks preceding her retirement, and here she proves finally that her class will be able to live on, in memory at least.

The local passing through a supercell thunderstorm. The local is only 4 cars long, typical for a Sunday.

Thank you for your very kind words.
Gosh, isn't the competitions getting fierce with so many brilliant shots from everyone....... a great challenge!

Good morning ARhian7;

Fierce is right......but still friendly! I'm sure like most, my main interest is the area I'm working on. In my case it's the area where I live. Lately though, I have been looking at routes from everywhere. I spend a lot of time checking out the screenshots section. Boy, folks from all over the world are doing amazing stuff in Trainz.

I may never win, but getting a vote now and then is great! It sort of makes me feel like I'm on the right track. What the heck did I do wrong last week (tropical)? I stunk up the place! Not even 1 vote! To make myself feel better, I'm saying I'm doing such a fine job on my route that it's impossible to make my northern home look tropical. Yeah, that's got to be the answer!

I tried my hand at a "funny" shot. I have a train passing some spotters. Not one of them even noticed it pass by. If you like, check out post #1041 in "The Canadian Thread" in the screenshots section. If you get even a little smile from it, then I too will be happy!

They may be kind words, but they are also true words!

It may be some time before I have shots that are really worthy of the competition. Until then, I will just have to work with what I have. Next year ladies and gents, be prepared to take it to the next level!

If you have never tried the contest before, give it a go! If you get a vote or 2, it will make you feel like all your work has not been in vain!

Cheers ... Rick

Sorry, back again; Hey, Boyerm25.....If you hit the F5 key, you can get rid of the menus. Hitting it again will bring them back. If you want, I think it's OK to replace your shot with one without the menus. Nice shot! I just learned about the F5 key myself about a month ago.

Cheers ... Rick

A quick break for a couple of weeks from the real world (my annual summer technology detox!:D).

Thought I'd throw one in whilst I'm around ..

Wow, wow, wow! So many beauties!

Conrail; I have always loved your shots. Your's always make me do a double take. "Is that real or is it Trainz?", I often say to myself. I think this time those flowers made me realize that it's really trainz this time. Still, it's way up there on the top of my list! I've yet to choose grass and wildflowers for my route. I had a real problem with them on my first attempt.

Some of you other "grand masters" Have sent in great shots that have a realistic look or have that super real look that some painters have achieved.

Peter's shot gave me a good feeling this time!

Good luck all, I can see just about everybody getting a vote this time!

Cheers ... Rick

Don't worry about that, Nicholas, I needed more time to look them all over!

1. ARhian7

2. Conrail45 To my eyes, this one would be first, hands down. I just could not buy the flowers. I think without them, I'd still be wondering if I was looking at a photo of the real deal! It's ALMOST perfect!

3. peterwise Felt like I'd like to take a little hike around that area!

I don't believe there was a dog in the whole bunch! With people having different tastes, I can see all of them getting a vote or 2.

Cheers ... Rick
