    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Moving Coal


    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)

    Two NS coal trains pass each other on the NS coal district. The trio of Dash 9s bring some freshly loaded hoppers down from Bailey Mine as the duo UP SD70Ms are being borrowed by NS to take an empty train up to Bailey. A railfan in a white pick-up truck watches the meet.

    I assume those are the hoppers off the Searchlight Simulations' website. As far as I know those are not for sale on Steam and therefore can't be used in this contest.

    A big thank you to those of you that liked my class 37 offering, sadly I have decided to change it for this one as I thought it more appropriate for this weeks theme.
    Power stations need coal and this Class 58 "Bone" is helping to keep the lights on in Nottinghamshire.

    [​IMG] After the other mainly rural settings I think it's time for some urban chic. Here a DB BR294 works a train of coal filled Falns wagons along the Munich - Rosenheim route. If you are familiar with Munich the ADAC building behind will be very recognisable. ADAC is the German motoring association.

    Nottingham & the East Midlands have a steeped heritage of the coal mining industry, there are six colieries included in this route alone, sadly all of the pits are now closed.

    A DB BR245 heads a train of Falns wagons along the Wutachtalbahn: Lauchringen – Immendingen route. This is the section where the track doubles back on itself with a series of spiral tunnels. When originally constructed the primary purpose of the route was military, so gradients were kept easy for the heavy payloads; twisty-turney was the compromise. The route is now predominately heritage, but it's maintained as a strategic asset, so this traffic isn't impossible.

    These hoppers are sale on the Searchlight's website for free but they come also with the AC44 from the steam library.

    It's the spring of 1960, and the Pennsylvania Railroad is as busy as ever. Here, a trio of GP7's take a string of loaded hoppers downgrade to Johnstown, where they will be sorted into other trains bound for various points on the Pennsy system. Below, a passenger train and a freight train also just so happen to meet.

    And I deleted my own pictures because they were not good enough for this weeks contest.
