Train Sim World photo contest. [ENDED]

Unread postby artimrj » Sat Mar 18, 2017 9:16 am

DTG has given me 5 key codes for TSW. They like us here. So let's have another contest.

The theme for this photoshoot will be pre CSX. Submit screenshots of any pre CSX liveries. Like the ones that eventually became CSX, Chessie for instance and all the others.

Standard rules apply. No alterations. Attached to this thread not an outside site. A caption to go with your shot.

Nothing but screenshots in this thread until contest is over.

If you already own TSW you can still enter and give the key code to a friend.

You have 5 days. Contest ends Wednesday the 22nd of March at 10 pm EST.

Good luck and may the force be with you.

My feelings are going to be hurt if I don't see at least one entry with my B&O F's.

I remember as a kid sitting on the trestle next to my house watching this exact view of UBoats thundering across southern Iowa, although wearing Cascade Green. The smell of the smoke, the vibration of the old wooden trestle, the sound. Ahh, that was a childhood.

Anyway, no Cascade Green here but the colors of C&O, but gaze with me through the smoke, feel the world underfoot tremble, and smile.

New Haven No More....

As sun lit clouds slowly pass high above, ex-New York, New Haven & Hartford sister FL9s soak up the last rays of sunlight at Cedar Hill before enduring yet another harsh Winters night.

On a late summer day, a pair of SCL U36Bs lead a grain train down the Adriana County Line. Notice the caboose on the end of the train around the curve.
