As we all know, some people still try to keep alive the steam era. Below a shot what is trying to represent that...

And on a similar theme, here's my entry:

It is the late 1960s. The Glyn Island Railway desperately clings to steam power, using whatever equipment is still available to work the freight harbour. They even went so far as to build diesel-shaped steamers for the appearance of modernity on their heavy freight runs. Meanwhile on the mainline, a shiny diesel pulls into the station with the express.

As for the voting, I think we have enough entries and we've waited long enough. I'll put up the votes in a few hours, tomorrow at the latest. :)

From my spacious archive I dug up this, the Sørheim Steel work anno 1901. Plenty of steam here, thanks to Andy's gorgeous creations.

A steamy day at the seaside town of Kellogg. Regular passenger services run to and from the train station, hauled by powerful 4-6-4 Hudson locomotives -- one of the newer, streamlined models is just pulling in.
A paddle steamer approaches the docks from a distance as fishing ships pull up alongside a freighter nearer the harbor. A mighty Short Empire seaplane has just landed, and its passengers will soon alight on the pier amidst the cries of circling seagulls.
To cap it all off, a majestic Hindenburg-class airship dominates the skies over the sea. Truly, there is no more glorious craft in all the earth, and its majesty may very well never be surpassed.
An earlier model of airship also flies over the town -- unable to compete with the Hindenburg-class at passenger duties, it has been converted for ferrying supplies to far-flung industries. Farmers and miners across the nation are treated to regular shipments of needed goods via airship.
One might theorize that surely this scene represents the pinnacle of technology, but the winds of change are yet blowing. The Electro-Motive Division has begun shipments of its E-unit locomotives for express passenger duties; dual pairs of these locomotives are already in express passenger service and might one day pass through Kellogg station...

Thank you, STD, and thanks to all who voted for my screenshot. I feel grateful and honored.

I am also very pleased to see that it's possible to win this competition without showing off massive and complex train stations :)

If I may suggest a theme for the next round, I'd like to go for Shipping.

I am also glad for the quick choice of theme. I hope that this time will be at least 4-5 screenshots. The theme is a general and extensive. Good choice, leifbk :D .

One of my favourite harbours, the Stakskog bulk terminal and scrap yard compound. The year is 2173, and the harbour has recently been expanded.

Just to confirm, the theme this month isn't solely restricted to ships, but also the shipping of goods, cargoes, etc?

I was primarily thinking of shipping as "transport on water", but then, I don't make the rules around here :)

I realise that "shipping" in a broader meaning may cover any kind of transport, but then the theme becomes so diluted that it won't make much sense at all IMO.

Or in air... I mean airships and spaceships... They have the "ship" in their names :D

Don't forget about the four-legged ships that go "baa".

Actually everyone's been wrong so far; this month you're supposed to pick your favorite couple/OTP and argue intensely in favor of the pairing... :roll: :wink:
