Right, seeing as the forums are really taking off now, let's get this show on the road!


Here's the idea: Submit us a screenshot based on a certain theme, and we'll have a poll for  your favourite. We'll then use the winning shot as the forum banner for the rest of the month! (Though we may veto the winner if we think one of the others would fit better - don't worry, we'll still let people know you won!)


The rules:

  • One submission per person
  • No voting for yourself (when we open the poll) - please be a good sport :)
  • You can interpret the theme however you like, in any sim you want
  • You cannot win two months in a row. By all means submit another shot after winning, but we won't us it. This is to make things a bit fairer on everyone.
  • No obscenity, rampant racism, etc, etc...
Deadline is the last day of each month. The winner will be picked by the staff within the next week.


As the forum is taking off, this month's theme is Beginnings. Make of that what you will!

It's 5:00 in the morning, and a lone passenger waits to begin her journey on the X35...

[EDIT: Higher res version. Also fixed missing balustrades. And yes, I waited until there was one woman waiting at the stop again...]

It is 5:30am and CE63 NZF leaves the depot to begin operating the 92 to Penarth, while the driver of CN64 FWK is making some final checks.
Oooh, very atmospheric!

Background Info For Post Above(The edit time ended):-The last MB O407 ever to be operated by DB heads towards Tettau to take a train journey to the local scrap yard. DB has now started to use modern Volvo 9900's, much to the disappointment of the local community. In 5 years time, DB will leave behind their Tettau operations, due to a major drop in passenger numbers. This wreck-less action leaves 50 people unemployed, and no services for the locals. All because they rattle too much for DB's inspector's likings. :( -_-

Edit time? That will never do, I will have to change that :)  I wanted there to be no edit limit so you could always edit first posts


EDIT: The setting was set at 5 minutes after posting but I have changed it to unlimited, this will be good for WIP topics :)

Transdev's Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TL 3613 (BF63 HCG) is pictured here on Totnes Hill, whilst working service 36 to Paington.


The recent changes in BOTW have seen Transdev take over the highly profitable 36 service which runs between Totnes and Paington via Berry Pomeroy. This has seen a new, striking livery and fancy leather seats which passengers have warmed to quicker than expected.


New destinations have also been screened, advertising the free wifi and sockets available, and to show how fast the route is (Pangton in only 30 minutes!)
