Greetings.

Your train left the station 2 hours late, was held up at a jammed switch for another 1, and is now being let out of the hole after waiting for a lowly freight to pass. What you need now, then, is some speed. This week's theme is Speed. Please send your theme suggestions for subsequent competitions via email or Skype by clicking on the little icons below my username.

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 July 19 at 12:00 mn UTC/GMT/Zulu time (http://everytimezone.com/).
Please note that beginning this week there will be a slight shift in the cutoff; it is now 12 hours earlier at UTC midnight instead of midday.
Also, after consideration of received feedback, it is now a requirement for all users who enter to have at least 1 registered Trainz version.

Cheerio,
Nicholas

After replacing some failed E-units on a crack passenger train, PRR T-1 #5540 Roars past a signal tower at a scorching 145MPH trying to make up for lost time.

Hello, this is my proposition:

28 march 1955 : world speed record at 331 km/h (SNCF CC 7107 with four coaches) Sixty years ago, the actual speed of TGV every day !!!!

As seen through a farmers eyes while moving his sheep on that eventful day of July 3rd 1938 at milepost 90 1/4. Little did he know what he was witnessing, or know that driver Joseph Duddington, with his fireman Thomas Bray, and inspector Sid Jenkins on the footplate were about to make history.

Sorry Stu, I just could not resist putting a BR Duchess at more or less the same spot on my Revised Rosworth Vale (WIP). Am I forgiven?

Stu, I think we are only allowed one shot per week in the competition, leave the Coronation Scot. If I had raised your bid with the King, it would have been with a couple of Jubilees or Patriots double heading. So a pair beats a King any day... ;)

I see you have your Rosworth on the DLS, I keep trying to get mine there, but each time I do, I find something else to work on. Wonderful original layout though, been around for a long time now.

Regards,

Dave

A PPR blasts from a smoke filled tunnel heading for Somewhere.

Under stormy skies, two aging Canadian Pacific 4-6-0s (the D4g #492 of 1914 and D10h #999 of 1912) hustle a secondary passenger train through the rain in hopes of reaching the station before it turns into a severe storm. Note the head end cars leaning into the curve as this train rocks and rolls past a coal pile well above normal speed.

I know that I've overused this by far, but I just love this little intersection so much for some reason.

I hereby place the following votes into the mix:
(Listed in order of appearance in this thread)

1. GIRAUD: An excellent re-creation of SNCF CC 7107's record-breaking run. I don't think I'd ever find the time to place all those figures! And I also like the smoke effect - dust whipped up by 7107's incredible speed, I assume?

2. Blackie11 - the scenery on your Revised Rosworth Vale route looks very realistic.

3. Rail4Pete: I assume that's a T:ANE shot? The lighting is amazingly realistic!

Honourable Mention: Generalman. Anyone see why? :hehe:

Kieran.

Honourable mention must go to cascaderailroad who must have been on speed when creating that scenario, even though it gives me an irresistible urge to push a TGV up it at over 300 clicks just to see the result. :p:hehe:

I do! :D Guess my shot wasn't "speedy" enough for everyone this week. :hehe:

By the way, have you worked on that anymore? I never could figure out that issue. It was only on the driveable version(s).

Sorry, I haven't really had a chance to.

By the way, the shot could have been speedier if you'd used a certain bus. ;)
