    By the way can you see the pic I posted? There were people having problem about that so I uploaded it on Imgur this time. Hope it works...

    Most of my screenshots are with locomotives that have a third party payware modification that makes the headloghts look super realistic. Would this be considered cheating?

    Nope.

    Presumably you have a Steam log-in. Haven't tried this but could you not upload your screengrab to Steam then copy/paste the URL in a post here?

    Edit: Oh wait- in the original posts. Yeah. Sorry- bit hard of thinking.

    But I didn't copy/paste URL this time. I simply uploaded it here.

    The only US route I have is Sherman Hill which limits my options a bit (I presume Castle Rock in the Workshop is off limits) but I'll give it a go:

    No doubt someone will explain why this line-up at Cheyenne is completely inauthentic. I could never get the sun in the right place- either I can't read a map or Wyoming is south of the equator.

    Can I suggest that entries should have a caption mentioning at least which route has been used in their creation and perhaps any other assets. Without knowing much about US routes my impression was that most if not all of them involve slow, slogging, endless freight trains and Sherman Hill largely satisfies my appetite for that experience but no few of the entries here look quite different and appealing. I can identify some routes but have no idea about others.

    I echo the congratulations to this weeks winner BTW- a nice scenic view. No idea where it comes from though.

    The US routes are many varied just like the UK routes. NEC, the NJ transistor routes are long distance commuters running both Amtrak and NJT locals. New Haven route is both commuters, amtrak and freight so you have high speed passenger and moderate speed freight. Feather River Canyon is a beautiful freight mountain route that will challenge to no end for freight and does have the California Zephyr for passenger. All very different from the Sherman Hill experience.

    The new Raton route is again a challenge to your railroading skills especially with the very quick transistion from the 3.4 % grade up to a very short “summit” then hit the 3.0+ down grade —again good, but slow fun.

    Hope that helps a little and I do agree that captions should b part of the contest.

    Oh no doubt but, as a foreigner ill-informed about US railways, it's impossible to judge what will appeal just from the list of DLC in Steam. Of course the communities here and on Steam are quick to offer recommendations so I can, and yet may, ask but when something catches my eye it'd be nice to know where to look into it. It was the inter-urban EMU that particularly caught my attention here BTW- easy enough to find the route thanks to the caption.

    Thank you for that.
