    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Nature/Animals


    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)

    This isn't for the contest, but thought I'd share. Just came across this on the ECML (BR's by simonmd) a bit north of Hitchin.

    There is a good chance it's exactly the same on the standard ECML.

    True. Although... I just consider these threads as nice, thematic hubs for some screenshots.
    The winners are subjective but visiting these a few times throughout the week and pressing like on those I do is a nice little community interaction. Bonus for seeing several great entries. Were it a pure race, this thread would be absolutely void of likes. Heck, being a competition might be causing more salt than joy. But it's a motivator to participate I guess.

    There is a winners compilation thread over yonder, bookmark that :)

    I'm being hand-on-Bible God-Himself-as-my-witness honest when I say that at a very quick first glance, that could quite possibly be mistaken, for a split second, as an actual photograph.
    This one is also very well composed.

    I have to agree, it's a serious candidate for winning. It's similar to the winner of last week anyway, but I think it diserves it

    Woohoo! Thanks guys! When I was taking this screenshot, my original intent was for it to be a shot of the train going over the bridge just beyond the tunnel outside of Elkhorn, but once it passed I jumped ahead to the front of the train and caught the lightning and depth of field at just the right moment. It was a split second shot.
