Ive Seen the adds for this on trains and on gunzel sites and entered a few myself, but what makes me wonder is who is running it and why?
It seems that CRRC is running it for the following reason
CRRC is a global rail transit provider with a world-leading product platform including high-speed EMUs, urban rail vehicles, high-powered locomotives, and railway wagons. Its products are used in hundreds of countries and regions across six continents. 2019 marks exactly 20 years since CRRC began serving the Australian rail transit market. CRRC’s metro vehicles, EMUs, locomotives, trucks, and other rail transit vehicles are being used all across the vast Australian landscape including Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland and more. CRRC is proud to be part of the Australian community and continues to work hard promoting its mission of, ‘Connecting the world to benefit humanity’. CRRC works to improve life and make it more convenient.

DD707 should be pleased; photos currently there have a distinct bias to Victorian gauges (1600 & 762mm). Hope for us yet?

CRRC is the company that built the Waratah trains for NSW.

Do we need to commission background checks on the Mods here? Can’t have Chinese influence what gets posted on RP, now can we.Laughing

I can confirm firsthand that I am working for the CCP right now. I have sold my soul and country out in order to expand these gauges with help from the 'one belt, one road' initiative and all the cheep sweatshop labour. I have been tasked with subverting this very internet forum pushing it towards China's Influence.

I think RP could beat this project and offer a much better service. Time to relaunch the photo comp with sponsorship?

The results are in.......well not quite.......

The top three have been selected, but the order has not been announced. That is being held over to an awards ceremony in Melbourne in a week or two's time.

I happen to know one of the lucky winners (third prize even gets you $1500) who will be heading down. Apparently it's meant to be a glamorous night of nights, though how they are going to get non participants to attend I know not.

@bevans - as for getting sponsorship the majority of our tight-arsed rail industry wouldn't have bar of it, especially when most of the numpties in their PR departments expect to get their images for free
