I feel honoured to be the winner of this month's competition despite the amount of entries! And a commendation to those who came very close! :D

Thanks again to everyone who participated and voted. I think the "vote for three" method went well but I'm going to put a poll up to decide if I should continue it for when there are more than 10 screenshots.

And as a final thanks, have some bonus screenshots from me :)
This was my other option that I considered for this month's competition: the Muallt Viaduct. One of the busiest lines on Darren Island crosses this viaduct near the city of Llanfair-ym-Muallt. Local third rail EMUs are seen sharing the track with steam powered freight and passenger trains.

And here's the Tredegar Viaduct in 1940, when it was still part of the rail network. A passenger train is seen crossing it, while more trains pass through Tredegar station on the mainline.

To continue the theme of my screenshot, the theme for July will be Abandonment
For transport infrastructure that is no longer used, in disrepair or has seen better days...

good luck and get abandoning! :D

I congratulate with the victory you, Jake :D . Great job on the organization of the competition. I liked the bonus screenshots. Beautiful :)) . I fully support your view that we should give the right of choice in the amount of three votes, when the number of screenshots exceeds 10 :D . I hope that soon we will have lots of screenshots, as this time.
I like the new theme. Excellent choice. Very important at all times. The theme is quite broad for the imagination. I think every future member already has a lot of ideas in head for the implementation of the current theme. So go ahead gentlemen friends :)) .

-------
Changes on the Wiki (TT Screenshot of the Month) I also made recently :D .

Congratulations on all the players who enter these competitions whether you win or not.

I haven't entered any yet and hope to start in coming months.

The 3 votes great idea as some images hard to choose which one like best so being able to vote up to 3 makes it more interesting. Probable if 10 or less, still good if have to vote for at least 2. When it is 1 vote I imagine some players who entered the competition would only vote for their own, So voting a minimum of 2 no matter how many entries gives every one a good chance.

Cheers all

A post-war town, once a vital transport link, has been left to abandon and rot. Scrappers have started pulling up sections of track, while the road infrastructure and buildings crumble and decay. Vehicles, no longer needed, are left abandoned in the streets, rusting away.

The ex Low Speed Train Network is replaced with buses and a High speed train but there are still two trains on the heavy damaged tracks.
There are tow Planes on the abandoned Airport.

Is something off with the perspective of that screenshot? It totally gives me motion sickness.

Except it's not moving.

How very weird :shock:

As it turns out, I got a screenshot in my current MP game that works great for the Abandonment theme.

Quote:
The Cockburn branch, built in 1921, is one of the most distinctive pieces abandoned pieces of infrastructure built by the legendary WEWRailroad. Now obsecured in the city of downtown Cockburn, the original station was the first passenger service run by the WWR

Originally built as a shuttle service to connect nearby cities to Cockburn airport, the line was extended northward to Lyon division creating the first connection between WWE's northern and western divisions. Due to single track operations, and sharp corners, only a few trains could pass through day at low speeds over the distinctive twin bridges. The branch line was electrified in 1942, lasting only until 1950 when the new Cockburn station was developed in the south, and passenger service was discontinued to Cockburn Central. The Lanstrend Act provided government funding to build a new dual track line now known as the Empire Connection, bypassing the original 1920 alignment. Goods service lasted until 1960 using the northern division tracks when the Empire Connection was finally completed.

The only sign of the Cockburn branch on the north division is a single crossover near a fruit station.

Despite nearly a decade since the last train rolled over the Twin Bridges, Cockburn Station itself remains in operation serving as a passenger waiting area for streetcars. The tracks and some of the original semaphores have been left in place, though parts of the rails have been stolen by scrappers.

Would you mind posting the rotated version? (not for entering, I'm just curious to see what you did to it :wink: )

It's like one of those magic eye diagrams. You look at it and you can tell something is off but you can't tell what. o_O;

File comment: The newly opened Glasgow Transport Museum houses the very first train that 'Don't Freight' purchased.

A 0-8-0 Freight Engine used to carry coal from the nearby mine, over to Stirling Powerplant - but at 25 years old, it now lives a peaceful 'abandoned' lifestyle in the Museum.

My entry for the month:

All that remains of the train station in the village of Geringswalde are the platforms. The station was modernised in 1976, however, was soon abandoned in 1978 when there was a mass exodus from the town following the collapse of the local mining industry. Whilst trains still thunder through at speeds exceeding 200km/h, they no longer stop in the sleepy village. Over the years, the shelters and passenger information displays have been removed, and the steps to the underpass bricked up. Upon closure of the station, the loop line, which allowed express trains to pass stopping trains here was also taken out of use, and whilst officially still a part of the network, is now devoid of track, having been stolen by those hoping to make what little cash there is still to make in the village. The little bus that now services the village every Tuesday (to allow people to the Market in nearby Gundelsheim) can be seen just underneath the railway bridge, whilst a Regio Express train, on one of the services that used to stop here, blasts through the site of the former station.
