Here's some of my screenshots
Some screenies from my travels this week.......
Nice ones The second is almost lifelike. And the fourth is very Skyrim-like.
It has been ages since I shared my screenshots on this thread so thought it about time I rectified that fact.
I have been battering the sales again, First up the California Zephyr, what a fantastic piece of US heritage transport.
Secondly the BMG Jubilee Class although not on sale just had to be had.
and also this to die for class 9F
More to follow...........................
Welcome back to the gallery!
A trio of shots of the AP Class 37 with a rake of AP MK1 maroon coaches on a run from Carlisle to Dumfries.
Cheers mate, only just realised how long it had been since I last posted, good to be back.
1) A string of ore hoppers is moved to Ehrang under cloudy Autumn skies
2) A train of loaded coal hoppers passes some road works and a vintage car during its descent to Provo
3) A UP GP35 pulls a string of hoppers South of Dover, Ohio
4) A vintage BR Blue Class 101 on a stopping service from Darlington to Newcastle
5) During times now being history, this lady traveled by train down the ECML towards Peterborough
I picked up the Arizona Divide route a few days ago since it's on sale, and I must say it's a very scenic route! I've been having a lot of fun driving it. (Also I really really hope someone's out there working on extending the GCRY section all the way to the south rim.)
Am having so much fun with this Rail Tamping Unit, it makes such a change from the normal A-B rolling stock.
This week's Official Screenshot Competition centering on Heritage, here's a recent capture of a Caledonian Railway Class 439 carrying passengers on West Lines of Scotland:
ICE 3 high-speed trains.
BR DB Black class 101
Went a bit foreign this time around.
Messing about with some third party reskins I recently found.
RBMN F7s from RWA
RBMN SD50s from Chris & Jerre's Paint Shed
A CP SW1500 also From CJPS
NS's Veterans and First Reponders units also from CJPS
All shots were taken on my wip route
PRLX 4834 leads a BNSF run-through manifest to Miami and meets a rock train
Oh my. Health and Safety's gonna have a field day with that one. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
ABB Alp-44s made a return on the Morris & Essex Line
Leaning through the curve
Network Rail Class 31
1) An Amtrak P30CH duo arrives to San Diego
2) Caboose at the rear end, Pennsylvania Railroad is working the branch around Johnstown
3) A DB / Siemens Eurosprinter duo takes an ore train to Ehrang during early Autumn

Now something more northern, late 1950s Teesdale, summer dusk:
Fictional Heritage line between Middleton and Piercebridge:
I tried to re-create this famous photo of Broomielaw Station:
Metro North morning commute to GCT
And a painting style edit of the same screenshot:
wow, that is very cool!!!
Wow, good job!
Just raided Steam Sounds Supreme for this little Gem - the Stroudley Terrier
Though I have my weekly set prepared, going to delay it in favor of a pair of GG1 shots - haven't seen them here in a while.
Morrisville Yard I think:
Lastly, an accidental by-product of the Unofficial 3rd Party Screenshot Competition
I've not captured any truly memorable TS images lately. Here's an older image. It's fairly basic, as is obvious. However, I find it makes an excellent Win10 desktop wallpaper. By sheer happenstance, my many desktop icons frame the cab front window well-nigh perfectly. Except at window bottom, where no icons reside. The image is captured along Lenton-on-Sea SteamWorkshop route. Sadly, I neglected to annotate which loco this is:
Looks like a possible 14XX to me.
A few screenshots showing my recent 'travels'.
It's 1990 and the daily Brighton-Plymouth service rolls down the incline between Exeter Central and St Davids. The 33s will come off and shunt to Exeter New Yard to await the balancing working...
...to be replaced by more substantial traction for the slog over the Devon banks. On the right, another 'Hoover' rolls into platform 1 with the stock for an Exeter to Waterloo express, whilst the fuel point can be glimpsed in the background.
We jump forward to 1994 and see a Crewe to Bangor working, headed by a 'Ped' (most likely deputising for a failed 37/4.)
Slightly more recently, a FGW Sprinter (still in its Wessex Trains livery) is captured pausing at the delightful Freshford, while on a Bristol to Westbury stopping train.
The 150 is then seen departing Trowbridge, a station rebuilt in the early 90s and unrecognisable from its original form.
Lovely shots, Limeyfox.
1) Mandatory red-green-blue shot from Koblenz-Trier.
2) Touring the Class 33 pack, seeing a /0 here with a Durham-Wearhead stopping local.
3) As the early lush gives way to hot, dry days, we look at the rear of an Amtrak Desert Wind and a truck
4) Resting on the rear end of a train on another continent of another era is a GWR Toad braking van
5) CAT is parading big wheels attached to yellow machinery while an NJT local passes by on its way to Bay Head (near miss of F40PH pun)
My latest TS loco acquisition, Digital Traction's LNER J70, seen here in GER livery traveling Payne & Warrborough:
I'm quite pleased with it. When not used as a tram with 12mph speed limiter, it's a surprisingly speedy loco. At least it is on relatively level track. I've not yet tried it on any long, steep inclines.
Some shots of Searchlight Simulations and JointedRail's fantastic SD40-2
1) UP Extra 30 West, led by a GTEL, approaches Dale westbound on Track 3 on a colorful Fall evening
2) An Acela from Philly departs Newark Penn for its last leg to New York Penn on a cloudy spring evening
3) NJ Transit ALP-45DP takes commuters from work to their New Jersey homes under ocean spray on a spring evening
4) A PRR Alco RS-11 duo takes a mixed load across the mountains (Donner Pass)
5) One of BR's shiny new HST sets takes travelers from Kings Cross towards the north under clear Summer skies
Two train class 377's
Tried to work something out on NS's N-Line for my second entry for this weeks Screenshot contest, it didnt work out, but here are some pics of a NS C39-8 running LHF.
Also, I noticed a billboard with Cheerwine on it.
Some really great shots in this thread.
Now we find ourselves in a well-known valley in the West Riding, where a Cravens DMU leaves a smokey haze as it awaits departure. The morning mist is beginning to lift, signifying that a lovely summer's day is in store.
I'm quite taken by the LNWR 2-2-2-2 "Greater Britain" in Lavender & Cream livery, seen here traveling West Highlands Line Extension.
1) Amtrak's Desert Wind, led by an F40PH duo, descends to Provo on a clear summer morning
2) An NJ Transit local is stopping at Belmar on its way to Bay Head
3) Rio Grande's Kaiser Steel K-train is about to leave a busy yard at Helper, Utah
4) A Union Pacific GP35-DD35 quartet is seen traversing valleys between mountain passes
5) A BR Blue HST sprints after a stop at Stevenage towards its next stop at Peterborough (simonmd's BR's ECML)
Wait so how does a 2-2-2-2 wheel arrangement work? Looks like a 2-4-2 to me.
Designed by the LNWR's Chief Mechanical Engineer Francis Webb, it was basically a compound where one low pressure cylinder drove the first axle, and the outer high pressure ones drove drove the second, they weren't too successful due to their mechanical complexity and overall unreliability. After Webb's death, they were immediately taken out of service.
Very interesting. The British loved to experiment during the 1850s to 1890s with their designs, huh?
