Greetings.

Well the original plan for this week was "Christmas", but that's been done alot of besides just about anything qualifies as a Christmas shot - even the ones without snow. So instead say hello to our fun-sized cousins the narrow gauge railroads from around the world. Please send your theme suggestions for subsequent competitions via email or Skype by clicking on the little icons below my username.

One screenshot allowed per entrant. Screenshots must adhere to the theme and the Trainz Forum Code of Conduct.

Submission closes on December 27 at 12:00 noon UTC/GMT/Zulu time (http://www.everytimezone.com/).

Cheerio,
Nicholas

The 3ft 6 gauge (42") is used by several National Railway Systems, New Zealand being one such Railway. One of the main advantages of the narrower gauges
is that it is far better suited for hill, and mountain, terrain, i.e. laying shorter radius curves, primary industry lines,etc.

Although the scene above is fictitious, it is prototypical of many Station/yard scenes found during the 50's & 60's in NZ.
Featured are twin (GM)Da engines, and a K class 4-8-4 (NZ built) locomotive.
Respects to Fender849 (NZ), and the late Billegulla (Aus), for their great NZRTS engines. And also 'Rugrat' for his URL logging cars.

Voting for... edh6.

I though you always granted us 2 votes for 6-10 submissions (1 for 1-5 and 3 for 11+)?

Hi Onno. I thought that was a bit too "narrow" so I'm trying spreading it out a little to help make voting a bit more competitive for low-entry weeks; 10, 15, 25 for 1, 2 and 3 votes respectively.

Some very excellent shots this week. I would have participated this week if I'd had any narrow gauge stock.

A Shay, a decent screenie of narrow gauge in India and a Garrat leaving a shared public road and you only give us one vote?

my, my, the times, they are a-changing.

well, I had to stop and think about flyboy559's screenie, for I realised it is a Shay with a decent level of detail and a hefty load behind it.

captainkman and the darjeeling screenie. A set of contrasts, modern India and old; the bus has luggage on the roof, the road is narrow, the cars behind the loco have that distinctive Indian Railways design of permanently open windows (how do they keep the carriages warm in winter? I know, wear kashmiri shawls! ) And then the train is passing the abode of a rupee millionaire who certainly has a view. A garish abode, nonetheless.

And then we have Ffestinog Heritage with rather unusual (for me) railway crossing boards, the Welsh version of crossbucks and the service is leaving a shared roadway - and of course, the image makes you look closer to see where the Garrat is going. You spy a platform. And to think I lived 30 minutes from Blaneau-Ffestinog 20 years ago and never went down there to have a look .... tsk, tsk.

Well, I will make up for my Blaneau-Ffestinog mistake and vote for peterwise - under protest, only one vote - my, my ... ...
