My selection this time is from John Dew's "Granby" layout.

The urban setting and the run into the station over the viaducts looks incredibly realistic.

Thank you Peter that is very kind of you but in all honesty (and no mock modesty)  I believe my nomination of Michael's "Market Square" to be a better choice.

I'm going to be a bit contentious here.....
This is a marvellous view of John's hotel, and a worthy nominee.





But
I would choose this as my photo of the month,  Current and an absolute master class and easily my favourite image of the build......

I give you John's hotel..... from the front.  I love the way it echoes buildings around it and, deliberate or not, the square tucked away now looks even more interesting and realistic.  A busy, bustling, beautiful scene.  And it's got the Tardis!




However, I fear this will split the vote.....


Michael

Ok no reply from Alan ( think hes busy this weekend  :thumbs). So we had a dead heat between Granby and Kent Coast Railway. 
Both also had more than one picture nominated so I did some market research, long statistical analysis and other in depth studies and finally came up with a winner ( slips coin back in pocket)  Ok actually I couldn't decide so it was declared a dead heat. . BUT Granby won back in October of last year with one of the two pictures nominated this Month so I'm sure John wont mind at all that this Months winner is Michael with his 





A worthy winner I'm sure you all Agree  :Happy


Cheers

Thank you, I'm both chuffed and surprised.  I feel a bit of a fraud, "winning" though, as John's superb hotel got more votes overall - it was fantastic from both the front and the rear!

Michael, you shouldnt feel in the least fraudulent (other than with the continued absence of mooring lines :lol::pedal)

Its a brilliant scene and definitely deserves its place at the top of the page....many congratulations from Granby:cheerss
