    I've seen a post like this on steam, and thought it was a pretty interesting idea. As i haven't seen a thread about this on these forums i thought i'd create one.

    Post your comparisons as well :)

    And since this week's screenshot contest theme is "interior", i thought i'd look up real pictures of coach interiors and compare them to tsw.

    And people complain TSW doesn't quite immerse them (need to go to the optician / eye hop)

    I swear, I truly have to do a double-take on many of these to determine the real from the sim ... amazing.
    Kudos Ninetofive925 on staging your screenshots so effectively to match. :cool:

    Isn't it interesting that the usual naysayers have ignored this thread? (I hope that this comment doesn't draw them, but couldn't resist noting their much appreciated absence.)

    I've voiced my disappointment with TSW in many threads, but I've never had a complaint about the graphics, they are indeed very good, but graphics are not everything.

    Ah Germany, just lovely I'll be seeing that beautiful space soon. Looks so peaceful and it is, no crazy rush hour like the UK.
    Those photos are spot on, the PIS screens are actually single not double.

    Really enjoyed playing a bit of peninsula corridor lately, so here's two comparisons:

    An MP36 next to an F40PH, both in Caltrain livery, in TSW vs IRL

    prpic_364_Caltrain_Centralized_Equipment_Maintenance_and_Operations_Facility.jpg

    An F40 just chillin' in san francisco on a clear morning in TSW vs IRL 20200225215002_1.jpg caltrain.palo.alto17-14mar15.jpg
    (notice how i lined up the shadow to match the IRL pic lol)

    Here's a quick one, really enjoy making these i don't know why lol.

    An F40 in San Jose in TSW vs IRL
    20200302214422_1 (3).jpg caltrain_f40ph_2cat___919_at_san_jose_diridon_by_foxfan1992_d8cltcd-fullview.jpg
    Did my best to line up the shadows, but there aren't many services on the right platforms, so that's as close as i could get. (Also didn't notice until now but that clipping snow plow ugh)

    it makes me wonder why DTG never moddled the steam shed at Bishops Lideard on WSR which is clearly missing and the white fence is moddled wrong as well.

    I think that this is the best thread that I have ever seen, on any internet Forum or Channel, ever......well, for over twenty five years or so... Yeah - so...., um, that's basically for ever....!!

    Wow. Um - this is better than the Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff threads (depending on your preferences) of the late 1990s, back when Baywatch was a popular TV show, and people bought colour TVs just to watch it in its full glory, and educational standards took a nosedive because everyone wanted to be a lifeguard.... Back when it took ten minutes to download a low res photograph of The Hoff on a 14.4kbps dial-up connection.... Which was always worthwhile. Best things come to those who wait, etc.

    This thread has really made my day, my weekend, my week, possibly my year... and the way things are going - it will probably rank quite high up for the decade.... and I am an optimist and I fully intend to enjoy the 2020s as much as I possibly can.

    Epic.
