    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: United Kingdom


    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)


    T&C:
    • Please refer the terms and conditions for this competition here:
    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)

    I skip this contest now when they have changed the time you have your winningpicture only 1 week on loading screen
    If they had not put news about new routes on loading screen then the loading time would not be a problem.
    I hope they change it back as it was before with only winning pictures on the loading screen.

    That's annoying - I was going to the exact same thing (but with a steam railtour). In the spirit of things I'll think of something else.

    I'll have another go as I like this route and what I know nobody have ever won the contest from this route(I think)?

    It is a foggy spring morning in the Scottish highland and a passenger train between Helensburgh and Crianlarish passing a maintenance house/shed(I guess).

    Route: West Highland Line South

    Loco: WHL Class 37

    I am starting to feel the same, with the new -fastload update you are lucky if you see more than 2 winning screenshots & have noticed that only the last 2 winners are included in the rollover display when there used to be 4. Reckon this might be my last week also.

    Is that not just because Fastload leaves less time for others to appear?

    Yes.
    I'm used to seeing just one or two pictures as I'm usually playing old content.
    There is an effort / reward in participating these threads. I'm actually considering to stop publishing my weekly selections as well, apparently nobody likes them. I stopped participating here for the same reason. I like about half of the posts, and yet DTG keeps selecting weaker ones about half the time. I keep taking and sorting them for myself.

    I noticed in the Screenshot Comp terms and conditions that you have to be a resident of the UK or Germany to win? If that's the case, that narrows it down quite a bit? Or is it open Globally?
