    You can vote for next week's theme in the poll attached to this thread. What is your choice?

    Follow us on Instagram (instagram.com/trainsim) to see your screenshots featured on our feed!

    How does it work?

    You can submit your screenshot to the thread, and every Friday we will choose which screenshots will go to the loading screens. Shortly after, we will open a new thread and announce the winners. Each week has its own theme which is voted for by the community.

    Other Rules:

    • Official content only. Please make sure anything that is not available on the Steam Store or Dovetail Store is not shown in the screenshot. - This means no reshade, repaint mods, track upgrades or workshop routes.
    • Your entry may be disqualified if it is deemed to not follow these rules. Please limit chat to only when absolutely necessary.
    • Competition closes at mid-day Friday (UK time). The winner will be chosen every Friday.

    20200515170433_1.jpg A crisp, sunny winter's afternoon in Darlington, 1963, taken from the foobridge between the station and the town's east end. ex-NER Q6 no. 63354, in decrepit condition, waits for entry to a yard with a short train of loaded mineral wagons while shunting. A noticeably grubby ex-LNER Peppercorn A2, in this case no. 60526 Sugar Palm, heads north with a train of vans (far from its designed duties of top-link expresses) while new Class 20s nos. D8058 and D8040 snake a heavy steel train out of the yard to head south.
    Locomotives: LNER Q6, LNER A2, BR Class 20
    Route: Weardale & Teesdale Network

    Xerxes, have a look at the list of prohibited content in the Other Rules section at the start of this thread. Marias Pass is one of these because licensing restrictions on the loco branding means it's only available to US buyers, so DTG can't use it in a world-wide loading screen.

    Possibly nit-picking a bit here, but this isn't a freight train - it's hauling passengers. Yes, I know the 7F is a freight locomotive, but I wondered if this is stretching the definition of "freight" a bit given that it isn't hauling freight..

    A Class 66 passes through the north end of Stafford station on the WCML Trent Valley route.

    About 12 miles from where I live and very well modelled.
