Readers' photos on the theme of "railways".
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "railways", and we begin with this picture by Shashank Peshawaria on a train from Taunton to Minehead, Somerset.
Michael Ward-Sale: "This picture shows a steam loco under full power, at speed, crossing the water meadows, in Lewes, East Sussex."
Andy Beckett: "Taking a break and enjoying the view."
Juan Villarreal: "The tourist train leaving from Bogota is decorated at Christmas."
Lynka Belanger: "When we think of railways, we imagine iron and steel structures far from the delicate plants used by the Montreal Botanical Garden in this Mosaiculture display."
Tony Abbitt: "The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway is a narrow-gauge railway running between Hythe and Dungeness in Kent providing a regular service all year round."
Martyn Tattam: "The last goodbye. All six remaining A4 Pacifics stand on the pad at the National Railway Museum, Shildon, [County Durham,] before the two expat A4's go back to America and Canada."
Premraj MC sent in this image showing a commuter waiting for his stop on a train in Bangalore, India.
Ute Wiehler: "Travelling in Niassa Province, northern Mozambique, on a bad dirt road, crossing the railway tracks at least 55 times in three hours, many railway signs - but I never actually saw a train."

Fakrul Islam: "Huge rush on railways during a religious festival at the airport rail station in Dhaka, Bangladesh."
Emma Crombie: "A Metropolitan Line train leaves Barbican station off into the night. For me it is the red lights and bright white lights that really make the photo special. Plus the symmetry of the two commuters on either side of the tracks. My favourite aspect is that I took it purely on a whim as I was walking home."
And finally, a photograph by Eddie Dodd of a teddy bear waiting on a platform to go on a journey. The next theme is "summer", and the deadline for your entries is 2 September.
