The aim of this thread is for you to obtain a real life picture and copy it in as much detail as you can, then display both pictures. Good luck!

If you are going to suggest that, wouldn't it be better to let contestants provide their own picture to copy?
Most of the potential candidates that would otherwise be capable of doing so might not be interested in that particular subject matter.
Also, why don't you start off with your own matching efforts? Let's see your favorite prototype picture and your Trainz copy together.

I'm no candidate to be entering the contest, but I must say, as an observer, it'd be more impressive for others to post the screens & the contestants have to match them. Anyone passionate about their current proto-route can probably post a picture of the real-life case and how well they matched it. It takes different skills to copy a picture you've never seen before.

That is outstanding work. I wouldn't be very good at this sort of contest, but there are those out there with the talent, such as okhiu. Thanks for the shots.

Love the steel works, Phil Skene's routes have that atmosphere. :cool:

Currently doing the route I've always wanted to do, the neighborhood I grew up in, which of course no longer exists because things change.

That building was originally an ice house, had two spurs on trestles coming off the C&NW Galena line, about 5100 West Lake Street. Mechanical refrigeration made roof hatch loading reefers obsolete, the ice house became a column mold factory, later an auto wrecker.

In my fantasy world it's once again an ice house.

Dunno what this is now, looks abandoned - originally a coal yard, later an oil company. Double tracked coal dumping pier, some of the trestle supports can still be seen.

That's the way I remember it.

Pipe supply company last I looked, might still be. When I was a kid this was a lumberyard;

For some reason it had a switchback, the loco would come down the grade, brakemen would open the gate and flag traffic on Lake Street (this is at 4900 west, Lamon Avenue, I lived in one of the tenements on the left) so the switcher could drag one car at a time out of the warehouse and push it up the grade.

Happy memories, standing under the L tracks with a train going overhead every few minutes, trains going by on the NorthWestern, watching the switcher work the lumberyard, coal yard, and ice house all day. :D

That's a challenge...

OK, a couple of shots from work in progress. Some bits still need tweaking...

Another one from me as I consider my second one a bvit of a cheat - only three items in it, and pure luck that the two cars are on the DLS...

Interrupted WIP at Heathfield to get this one...
