    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.

    It's May 1989 and the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To commemorate this, they have arranged for a variety of visiting locomotives, and festivities. Two notable visitors are Southern Pacific 4449, and Union Pacific 8444. As part of the festivities, the two engines are taking part in a side-by-side photo run by on the lead tracks into LAUPT.
    Route Used: Pacific Surfliner

    Screenshot_Clinchfield Railroad - Elkhorn City to St Paul_36.91665--82.29639_15-03-27.jpg
    We now jump to November of 1992. With the help of UP and CSX, a challenger locomotive thunders along the Clinchfield once again. Union Pacific 3985 has been brought in from Cheyenne to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of CSX's Santa Train. Here we see it roaring by a large crowd, eager to snatch up the goodies Santa is throwing off the rear platform. (In real life the 3985 was dressed up as Clinchfield 676, however since there's no official version of 3985 in that livery I cannot make it fully accurate).
    Route Used: Clinchfield Railroad - Elkhorn City to St Paul
    Locomotive Used: Union Pacific Challenger

    "So this is why these trains take so long eh?"
    Screenshot_Feather River Canyon_39.51258--121.55170_12-05-44.jpg

    It's an overcast day at the Oroville Amtrak Station in 1978. On the left is the Amtrak California Zephyr, waiting patiently at the platform for a Western Pacific manifest to pass by, on the bypass track. The train is also flaunting some of Amtrak's brand new Superliner coaches. Meanwhile, the passengers are getting antsy, as the CZ has been waiting for over ten minutes.

    Route: Feather River Canyon
    Locos: GP40-2, SDP40F

    Did you write that out by hand, or copy it from somewhere? Kudos to you if you typed it by hand! :)

    Trivia note: the letters "ll" represent a sound not found in English or other European languages. It's basically the "Hhhhhh" sound followed by an "L". So "Hhhhlanfair" would get you the right pronunciation. The "ch" is another sound also not found in English, but is similar to the "ch" found at the end of the German word "schlacht".

    Anyone from outside Wales who can pronounce it correctly deserves a medal.

    What do you mean sometimes? That glitch has been in the game since Donner V1! It always happens when you derail in a yard/tunnel or stretch out a train too far. I have a screenshot on my old PC of an E8 flying through the air after derailing in a tunnel, does anyone know why that happens? It's fun though, when it's not messing up a scenario. :D
