Georgia Valley Railway passenger local 323 East pauses at its namesake station at the head of Georgia Valley. Virtually nobody ever uses Georgia Valley station any more. It is 1959, and the end is near for the Georgia Valley Railway.

I didn't make the route. Also, I think what you're referring to might be the side of the table.

I'm not quite sure how that was done, I've been trying to figure it out myself.

Hope this helps.

@Nascarfan100
Ah, nice. I've seen that done before, and I honestly don't know how to accomplish it either. I know I've seen assets (And have at least a few myself) that are built to do that. I think what goes on is that they're set up like Tunnels, where they make all the Grid/Terrain beneath them, or within a certain area invisible. Then you just have to put an HO-Scale -> Real Scale "Table Height" on the edge of what you're trying to model and add that asset to it.

@Eso
Yea, I'm in the same boat as the other fellow, what route is that? It looks outstanding.

@Mezzo
Same as @Eso, lol. That route looks incredible. I'm not normally a big European Rail Fan, but that route would be a good first step I think, holy smokes.

@Perrock
I have to ask, what locomotive is that?

@Conrail45
Same as @Eso & Mezzo. Holy smokes... What route is that?

Awesome pictures ya'll, including those I didn't have questions for,

@RSKraus,
Thanks, oknotsen. I appreciate your invitation. However, I don't know how to upload my screenshots. I e-mail my screenshot competition shots to nicky and he posts them for me. If you can help me do it myself, I'd be grateful. I use a Mac.

It's really easy to upload a screenshot. Just visit an image hosting website (imageshack, hostthenpost.org) and upload your image there. Then, when you're posting on the forum, click on the "Insert Image" icon and enter the URL of the image you wish to post.

Steve Lerro and his 2716 in the sunset. Nice job!
MezzoPrezzo; I'm not a fan of spanish stuff, but that scenery is awesome!
Rail4Pete with some mechanics on the S2. I also really love the film strip background.

Honorable Mentions go to (these are not my votes):

S301. Love the awesome steam effects!
Conrail45. What can I say but great work!

Keep on Driving,

Thank you very much to those who voted for my entry and the kind remarks.

I almost didnít take part because I thought Iíd missed the deadline. Then I realised that it was 12:25 British Summer Time, which made it 11:25 UTC. Got it in with thirty five minutes to spare.;)

@chris2001trainz2010
@Falcus

The image is from a route I've been working on for some time. I built it from scratch (no DEM because itís imaginary), as a representation of the northern Italian lake and mountain areas.

In trying to improve on frame rates I've been giving it a bit of a makeover, reducing the number of individual assets and deploying textures wherever possible. The distant buildings are few and far between, but give just a hint of there being a village out in the distance here and there.

The mid and far distant mountains have only three textures. They've been rotated and varyingly scaled to provide a more believable terrain with the undulations of the baseboard terraforming providing additional depth with the Trainz automatic shading.

Still a work in progress!

Cheers
Casper
