    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Slow Summit


    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.

    Competition Rules:
    • Limit is 2 screenshots per person; 1 screenshot per post.
    • Include in your post the route the screenshot was taken on as well as the name of the train (if applicable).
    • Screenshots must be in a 16:9 resolution, at least 1920x1080 pixels.
    • Screenshots must fit the theme of the week, as stated at the beginning of this post.
    • In order to qualify for the competition, screenshots must be taken from products published by Dovetail Games that are currently on sale.
    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.
    • Winner's Prize: The winning screenshot will appear in the game as a loading screen for 1 week!
    (Please Note since the new update which changes loading times we have decided to change it to 1 week)

    https://dovetailgames.com/competition-terms-and-conditions/
    • Note that by submitting an entry to this contest, you are consenting to us using your screenshot as a loading screen and showing it on our social media channels (such as Instagram)

    "Are we nearly there yet?" The Bernina Pass route has some of the most brutal gradients on any conventional railway in the world. Here an Abe 8/12 Allegra must be glad it's approaching the head of the pass on the Bernina Pass: St Moritz – Poschiavo route.

    A heavy Union Pacific coal train makes its way to summit, passing thru Kyune sometime in the late 90's to early 2000's. Some Ex-Southern Pacific SD70Ms are seen on the point, and a group of Ex-Rio Grande Tunnel Motors can be seen as mid train helpers in the background, which still operated out of Helper for the UP into the early 2000's.
    Route: Soldier Summit: Provo to Helper

    Britannia Class 70018 "Flying Dutchman" with the famous Torbay Express near Churston towards Kingswear.

    I don't think this is high enough resolution to qualify- pictures need to be at least HD sized. Hope you read this in time to post a higher resolution version or something else.

    I thinks it's not entirely obvious how to add photos here - think it took me a week or two to work out how to include the images inline.

    Maybe it was originally higher res, but he just clicked the add as thumbnail option?

    If you:

    1. click Upload a File, navigate to, and click on your image, You'll see it load and be visible below, then

    2. place your cursor in the appropriate place. eg, I am pressing Return after this to leave a gap, then

    3. I click on the "Full Image" button and you image appears in full, proportioned to the column width, and full size when clicked:
