    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.

    • 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.

    Don't like being the bearer of bad news but if those are G-Trax's lightweights behind those F units, that disqualifies the screenshot due to those not being available through Steam.

    It's alright. And it just disqualifies the screenshot itself. From how I understand the rules, you can put as many entries into a contest as you want, just so long as overall, you only you have two entries, meaning you can take down entries and replace them with new ones you view as better, or, as in this case, are within the limits of the rules.

    Just delete your post with the screenshot you don't want, then post another. There's no point including a dud in your two screenshot limit.

    I felt that Clapham Junction encapsulated a busy mainline scene. A sort of modern recreation of the famous steam era image.
    Route: PDL - Waterloo to Portsmouth
    Loco: (444, 450, 455 and 377 that came with route), Class 378, Freightliner Class 66 v2.0, Class 159, Class 442, Southern Class 455/8

    Most of the entries so far seem modern so I thought I'd do a scene from the early 1960s. A Rebuilt Bullied Light Pacific brings a Southern Region service from Waterloo into Exeter St David's as a GWR King class brings in a Western Region express for Paddington. In the distance you will notice an N15 piloting another Bulleid Light Pacific up the 1-in-37 climb towards Exeter Central.

    Route: Riveria Line in the Fifties
    Locos: (King from Riveria Line in the Fifties), Rebuilt Light Pacific and N15 30777 Sir Lamiel.

    DTG provides class E18 with Bm and Am coaches. The coaches in the screenshot would have been better in olive green and Berlin blue livery. That should fit the red livery of the V200

    It is the career scenario the picture is taken from.
    I'll have a look later and see about the other wagons.

    Since a lot of the shots are more modern, I've gone retro with a BR Green Class 27 and rake of five maroon coaches pulling out of Durham on its way to Darlington, on the Weardale and Teesdale Rail Network. No OHLE to spoil the nostalgic feel!

    If there's a little icon next to the IMG, just right click it, and you'll see the option to either load the image or load it in a new tab. I've had the same thing happen to me a number of times.

    Thank you to those of you that liked my previous offering.
    Sadly I have had to make a choice and decided to go with this shot of Milton Keynes Station on the West Coast Mainline South instead.
    I lived in Milton Keynes for 7 years and this image evokes memories.

    Looking for a bit of education. I am not fluent in US Railway but are Mainlines single track?
    Please correct me if I am in the wrong, but was of the understanding that Mainlines had trains running past each other in opposite directions.

    Some mainlines are, yes. In this instance, the mainline is double tracked for a good chunk of the route, but the East and Westbound tracks separate and pass over each other at several points along the way. This is done as a result of the grade and is meant to reduce the steepness for certain trains. It's very common to see on most mountain passes.
