'Scenes of Scotland's Railway' photography competition

Our first ever amateur photography competition has been a great success with over 300 pictures entered by more than 200 keen snappers.

The panel of four judges, which included one of ScotRail’s graphic designers and a train driver who is an award-winning photographer in their spare time.

Images submitted across all four categories were of an exceptional standard and reflected the variety of communities served by ScotRail as well as our nation’s stunning scenery.

We're delighted to now reveal our winners. Thank you to everyone who entered!
