Remember..... Shameless self-promotion is allowed here so if you have a couple more pictures or a video of your engine feel free to post them


The poll will run for 20 days from the time it was published so may end at an off time on July 31. (like after 9 pm eastern)


I am still thinking about what to do as to if I should show all the entries not drawn.

Lovely selection,  is it OK to point out that it should be Mersey and not Mercy?   

Cheers Sandy.

What a wonderful 1st ever EOTM collection , some very nice photography & background scenes , this is going to be a difficult choice that will require more time thinking on my part.

Each one a worthy winner. Cheddar plant just did it for me.

Particularly nice to see the thought / care that has gone into the composition of the picture.

Well done each of you.

It was a tough choice and whilst i really like the nickel plated twin beam with boiler, the Cheddar Westbury won me over since it is a superb photo. I'll try and put an entry in for next months poll depending on the category.
Your nose is before your eyes, so trust it first!
