    Welcome back to the Train Simulator Screenshot Contest!

    This week's theme is: Subways and Undergrounds



    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 Monday 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 Monday (UK time). The winner will be chosen every Monday.
    • 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)

    A Class 313 emerges from the South Moorgate underground system into the daylight at Drayton Park on the East Coast Main Line London-Peterborough route. Here it will have to switch from third rail to overhead power.

    Great shot CSCARPENTER. I thought this was the favourite to win when I first saw it. An interesting composition with good use of light and dark. Well done.

    Thanks IronBladder much appreciated, it has been a while since I contributed to this thread but this theme just floated my boat, massive scope for interpretation.
    On hindsight I wish I had not bothered because it seems nothing has changed, close of play Wednesday and no sign of my winning shot appearing on the loading screens. DTG Jamie We were having this conversation over a year ago, deja_vu.com springs to mind. :(

    Some people just aren't cut out for the fast paced cut throat world of Train Sim screenshot competitions I guess.

    I'm too busy driving the dlc, building routes, repainting and ....... to bother.

    Would you please rethink your opinion on the fast paced cut throat bit of competing in this thread!!!
    It is my first time since Christmas (which I apparently won but my shot was only displayed for less than 1 week, pass me the grapes please (Shiraz if you have them LOL))
    At my age 1 posting a month is becoming a major issue, 2 is becoming even harder as I can't remember if I even posted the first one.

    There is usually a rotation of 3-4 pictures at least (promos included), but of course it's rare to see with fast loading times.

    Try PMing him. You shouldn't have to, but it's sometimes necessary.

    [EDIT]
    It is now nearly 20:30 UK time Thursday and I am currently still waiting for my winning shot to appear at all on the loading screens.
    Do I at this juncture just have to accept the fact it is not going to be uploaded?
    If that is to be the case then so be it, but why announce the fact I had been successful 4 days ago and then provide no further communication or explanation as to why it has not been visible?
    DTG Jamie I apologise for launching my rattle across the room but I find It really de-motivating and In my opinion totally wrong to supposedly offer a prize and to then not award it.
    I admit it may only be a bit of a fun screenshot sharing competition, but if the small prize on offer is not going to be honoured, or a reason provided as to why, then maybe some re-thinking is required as to how this thread is going to continue to be supported.
    Not a happy bunny :mad:
