    A Pennsy F7 heads up a merchandise freight as it passes by a GP7 heading up a passenger train at Cresson. It's May of 1960, and sitting next to the passing trains are strings of dead steam locomotives awaiting their fate. For some, preservation in a museum. For others, the torch.
    Route Used: Horseshoe Curve
    Locomotives Used: EMD F7, EMD GP7, USATC S160

    During the winter of 1963, Hymek D7066 makes a dash along the coast towards Newton Abbot on the Riviera Line in the 50s route. The winter of 1963 was the coldest for more than 200 years, with temperatures lower than -20 °C. Many passengers will have been relieved to see the trains running again.

    *This locomotive is included in the Western Hydraulics DLC.

    This probably would've won if there weren't those stupid licensing restrictions.

    Yes, but I can see reasons for having them. I assume our winning screen shots are being displayed to players all over the world, so DTG won't want game content being displayed that violates the licensing arrangements they've got with the IP holders. They also won't want players in other territories being made aware of content they can't buy, as that only leads to frustration.

    Perhaps the problem is that US players don't realise that some of the content they can access isn't available worldwide, but the rules are clear:
    Maybe the link should be made bolder?

    A British Rail Class 37/0 approaches Currour with a Fort William to Glasgow Queen Street service in the early 1980s on the West Highland Line South route. The loco is finally able to take a breather after it has had the long slog up alongside Loch Treig.

    Can i ask a question for the possibility of future entries. TS doesn't handle exposure in dull conditions very well and ultimately just takes what a photographer would class as an under-exposed image. Are we permitted to alter just the exposure values of an image - not colours, saturation etc and so forth? Although I'm being contradictory with the example I've provided attached which has had a full set of post-processing tweaks, the ability to affect exposure is something TS lacks natively.

    I thought UP SD70ACe qualified as the loco and Donner Pass as the route. Am I mistaken?

    You can't post entries once it's over. Plus you actually have to write what locomotive and route you used in the post.
