    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.

    • 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!

    Considered one of the fastest freight trains, a Santa Fe "Super C" makes its run thru the Arizona Wilderness somewhere west of Flagstaff on a late summer afternoon in the late 60's. Bringing up the rear is a Santa Fe CE-1 class caboose.

    Route: Arizona Divide
    Locomotive: N/A

    Screenshot_Horseshoe Curve_40.49313--78.43000_09-25-58.jpg
    A pair of Pennsy Centipedes in helper service shove a freight up the eastern slope of Horseshoe Curve on an nice fall morning sometime in the 50's. The caboose on the rear of this train is a N8 Cabin Car, which the Pennsylvania Railroad built 200 examples of it in the early 50's.

    Route: Horseshoe Curve
    Locomotive: Baldwin DR-12-8-1500/2 ‘Centipede’

    bit difficult on freight trains to use a cab car. In fact in Steam days a special van was used usually situated behind the engine in front of the train. German railways were fully braked from the late 1920s and the Zugfuhrer ( man in charge of the train) was more of a Conductor than guard. Late in Steam days some engines had “dog houses” built onto the tender for this man and in modern traction days he rides in the rear cab. Which is why there are no screenshots entered of German “cabooses” or brake vans.

    I was merely explaining why there are no screenshots of German brake vans or cabooses entered. I believe that to be on track.
