This will be an extremely difficult decision. Each photo that I center up on my screen, makes me want to vote for it.

Each and every one of them would look fantastic as our header & footer during the upcoming Holidays!!!

A very difficult decision as there are some superb engines but the one that hits the brief most for me is the Wilesco turbine it has more of a Christmas feel about it.

Yes, there are some truly great entries this month.
I have already decided I will not be voting for my own entry!

I've cast my vote.

Much as I would have liked to vote for my own entry, I had 2 selected that would be considered first. After substantial deliberation, I went with the 1940's Jensen #20 Big Power Plant with the blue horseshoe generator.

My second choice and by a very small margin is the Wilesco Turbine under steam.

I like early German engines but this time I voted for the early 4 bolt Jensen, an impressive plant.
