This will be my last entry until September. Sadly I’ll miss the mountains theme next week:(, but will be researching a few real ones in mainland Europe:D.

Here’s my Trains and aviation entry:

Squadron Leader Bill Boards swoops upwards, having easily outrun a 9f travelling though the southern English countryside.

At lower altitude is Flight Sergeant Charlie “Penguin"1 Harris who is having trouble gaining altitude. This could either be due to his vast previous experience of only having flown Mahogany Spitfires2, or an acute need to lose a considerable amount of weight.

World War 2 UK slang translations:
1 Term for ground officers with no operational experience - a bird with wings that can't fly.
2 A desk "flown" by "penguins" and "ground wallahs".

It is a very nice natural screenshot.

c'mon cascade, use your mouse , change the view and look from the other side like I did and you can see it's a broken down bus parked under the tree.

Toby and the Dragon...using GIMP filters. I can re-take the picture if the filters are too intrusive.

When most think of Aviation, the thought of a Huge Shinny Boeing 747 or a Sleek New Military Fighter Jet flying high and fast comes to mind....

I hear Aviation, and I think about the first plane I ever flew in...a crop duster. Here we see a farmer receiving a set of brand new Crop Dusters via a local freight pulled by a PRR A5s!

During WW2 a British DC-3 circles overhead while DONJ No.2 Uppland pulls away from the goods shed at Dyjrn.

Submission closed. The voting is here (http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?91189-Voting-for-Screenshot-of-the-Week-7-15-2012-to-7-22-2012).


Nice shot. You might want to display the image directly in your post, however, as this is more convienent to voters than having to click a link to open a seperate webpage with the image. If Facebook does not offer the ability to share a direct link to the JPG image file itself (not just a webpage showing the image, as you have linked to above) or does not provide "Forum code" to copy and paste into your post, then you may have to upload the image to an image hosting website, such as http://hostthenpost.org/.

Since I do not believe the issue of regular users being unable to edit their posts here in the Competitons forum has been fixed, I would have to change your post for you. PM me as soon as possible if you want this done.

Oh, you can keep your shot but I thought it meant to have both trains and planes in the same image...
