Greetings.

Everything in train simulation is just an illusion, making you feel like you're in a world bigger than it really is using smoke and mirrors. Or smoky engines, that works too. This week's theme is Smoke. 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.

Submission closes on November 14 at 12:00 noon UTC/GMT/Zulu time.

Cheerio,
Nicholas

. . . And on the topic of smoke, we've got some wildfires going on nearby, making things a little 'smoky' around here.

Another train enthusiast is leaving the "Big Smoke" of Sydney for his last journey from Central Mortuary Station to Rookwood Cemetary by NSWGR #5909. Rest in peace, ol' timer.

A small station somewhere in Sweden in the 40s.
The crew have begun to fire up some steam engines, and do a quick inspection before the duties begins today.

I'm more interested in the whereabouts of that gorgeous 2-6-4T. Any help in locating it would be appreciated. (PM me)

No, none of the items in that picture is TANE specific, actually, it's mostly old stuff made for TRS2004/2006/2009 (I build that route in TRS2006/2009, and have not made any major updates to it, after I installed it to TANE).

It requires a registration to get in, and a translator or fluency in Swedish. But it's well worth the while, because the content is utterly spectacular!

The second-to-last S3/6 from the time of state railways, BR 18.477 is still used for high-speed running, albeit with far less important trains. On this short special, her massive cloud of smoke trails off as she comes off the uphill gradient.

A Chessie System coal drag comes smokin' around a curve heading northbound in run 8. The train is taking this run of track at speed to get a run up for the hill to follow. The trailing engine, C&O 8643, throws up some smoke as the train accelerates.

Hello, May I ask you where you have found this S3/6 ??? It looks amazing...
