One screenshot allowed per entrant. Screenshots must adhere to the theme and the Trainz Forum Code of Conduct (http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/index.php5/Code_Of_Conduct).

Down at the Docks.
The Scene:
As the steam special on the bridge at left is heading past the fishing dock towards the port behind our view, the scene unfolds of a traffic accident down on the dock road.

A Morrie Minor has for some reason crossed the centre line and piled into the little 2ft Davenport Diesel hauling empties and derailed it.
You guessed it, Granny was at the wheel!!
Did Granny have a bit of a turn, was she distracted by something, was the sun in her eyes, was it mechanical failure of her aging car, just what did make Granny crash. As she is being tended to by ambulance staff, the police are getting a statement from a passer-by who was walking his dog and is currently pointing at the car as he explains what he saw as the on-lookers being to gather. Enjoy :hehe:

By the way Ian, can I ask what locomotive is crossing the bridge in your shot, and what it's pulling? The locomotive looks like a 9F.

A wet summer morning in the east, while the local passenger train glides across the rail/road bridge. (Rail/road, get it?) :hehe:

Yes, I have waited for so long for this to be the theme!
Here we observe a Plymouth ML-8 and a 44 tonner in their natural habitats.

The story behind this street running is that it takes up a lane, so traffic can drive in the other lane. If it was in the middle, the train might take up the entire narrow city street, which would be very congestive, and in a few decades after this picture being taken, NIMBY-angering.

Based on a picture my grandfather took when he was young. (I haven't seen that picture in a couple of years, He says he can't remember where he put it)

At Porthmadog in North Wales, traffic waits for the train to cross from one side of the road to the other to stop at the station.

Kieran.Hey Kieran, its a rusty old A1. Instead of posting some pics in here, I'll post some in the UK screenshot forum in the next day for so.
Cheers

Thanks, Ian. I'll look out for those shots. I don't think I've seen a rusty A1 in Trainz yet.

I know that Paulz Trainz has some rusty British locomotives. That may have been where he got it.
EDIT: Never mind, I just took a look at the picture. I was completely wrong.

It could be one of Camscott's engines reskined. I know he made an A1.

Wow, some of these screenshots are fantastic!

I have considered that Trainz does an excellent job on wilderness scenes, but not a convincing job of city streets and downtown areas. You folks are proving me wrong!

Okay, my vote, based on my opinion of photo composition, lighting, and realism:
