    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Railway Maintenance




    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)

    Are we allowed to set scenes in the editor (such as placing people in the shot that aren't on the route by default) if we use Steam assets, or do we have to leave the route completely vanilla?

    Seen many shots with additional assets. I see why you're asking, though (the banning of workshop routes). Many winners come from custom scenarios with specifically placed trains, no harm in an extra dog, or twenty. Heck, temporary speed limit boards and trucks are scenario-specific scenery upgrades. :)
    Otherwise, that UK shot with the big crew maintaining a set of points under a set of signals just autowins (again). :)

    Screenshot_Horseshoe Curve_40.48131--78.47710_12-00-13.jpg

    A Pennsy K4 is seen stopped near MG tower after the fireman noticed one of the engine's bearings was running hot. As the two look it over, the conductor shows up to see what the problem is. He would then ask the tower operator to flag down any trains that might show up behind them.

    Creating a workshop scenario and felt that this screenshot just about qualifies for this contest.

    Very early morning at Southall Depot and traction inspectors give one final look over Black Five 45407 'The Lancashire Fusiler' as she prepares to haul a railtour from Ealing Broadway to York.

    Route: Great Western Mainline
    Loco: Stanier 5MT and Class 37

    And because the previous one can be argued as not exactly "maintenance"...

    Some S&T staff test points after a long night shift while a Class 66 rolls through. Multiple units wait eagerly in the background for the possession to end.
