    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Double Headers


    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 was wondering when steam-centric screenshots would show up. (Insert Twitch LUL emote here)
    But on a more serious note, wonderful shots you two.

    Given how last week's winner didn't match the theme, i.e. no animal was on it, unless you mean the loco is a beast...
    I'm just posting two wagons with pumpkin heads. I mean, double header. Super fun pun, I know.
    Anyway, enjoy the shot, have a laugh.

    RhB ABe 4/4 IIIs head a mixed passenger and freight train over the Bernina Pass. Glorified trams (street cars) may not be the muscle traction everyone is posting here, but two of them are needed to pull longer trains up the ridiculously steep Bernia line.

    It's the late 80's and it's race day in Del Mar, but it's not for the the horse race that locals have become accustomed to. A set of double headed F40's take an extra capacity running of the San Diegan to Del Mar, filled to the brim with eager motorsport fans as they head south to witness the IMSA sports car series, who have set up a temporary street course in the parking lot of the Del Mar fairgrounds.

    Have a question about this route.

    Why is it allowed in contest when only USA have markings on the locos but the rest of the world do not have?

    Because the route itself is still available worldwide, and you can use non BNSF equipment in the screenshots, such as the Amtrak one in the screenshot above. Its the same for Chicago and Arizona Divide.

    So what about following routes?

    Cajon Pass
    Castle Rock Railroad
    Hedborough North
    Seebergbahn

    Cajon pass isn't listed on the banned list so it really isn't, but one would have to jump thru hoops to get it if they live outside the USA. Its also a very dated route so it isn't likely to win a contest anyway.

    The other 3 are no longer sold on steam, so they are not allowed in the contests, this also applies to Portland Terminal and the Bessemer & Lake Erie Routes as well.
