Greetings.

This week's contest is brought to you by 22alpha and our topic is of the intermodal variety; transloading! Please send your theme suggestions for subsequent competitions via email or Skype by clicking on the little icons below my username.

Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shipment) from one mode of transportation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transportation) to another.

One screenshot allowed per entrant. Screenshots must adhere to the theme and the Trainz Forum Code of Conduct (http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/index.php5/Code_Of_Conduct).

Submission closes on April Fools' at 12:00 noon UTC/GMT/Zulu time (http://everytimezone.com/).

Cheerio,
Nicholas

I'm guessing transloading is an American term, what exactly does it mean?

So transloading can involve taking a container from a train to a truck?

YES.



Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shipment) from one mode of transportation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transportation) to another.


Since container from train to truck fits in that description, then yes, it fits nicely in this week's theme. Trainz community is made up of members from all around the world, there will be no such thing as "US only" or "UK only" rules.

Sorry about the hassle I caused!

Here, we see some transloading happening from one of the carriages of a Glauston bound 'Northern Belle' service.

Guys, I think transloading is meant to be transferring freight not intermodal trains just traveling.

Transloading is when you take freight and transfer direct to another mod of transportation. Truck to train, ship to truck, plane to pack mule, ect... A transloading facility would be anywhere that that would happen.
