Some good friends of mine made a cracking addon for Train Sim:

Really good fun and some interesting scenario ideas we got working together.

If you like 'Phun' then this is for you!

Cho Cho chaps!

South Church

This model and it's textures took around 10 hours, the most interesting thing about them was I made them on the train to Chatham and back! I have a 50 minute section of the journey which allows me to get the lap top out and do some extreme modelling!
The Church is not really that close to the track but I had to make it. I will use the texture to make a few generic churches for the rest of the route.




I have copied over the 101 and the class 37 which will be 2 of the included bits of rolling stock. There will be a few more surprises too, (more on those later) but seeing as I made these for this route many moons ago they just had to go in. (maybe a shunter too... ;) )


Next up I am focusing on Piercebridge Station, I will be looking to make each station bespoke but with 40 on the route that will be a challenge!

more soon.

Ok so less of the Running! and more about the Route!

Some real progress made at last!

Anyone still read this blog? I know I have been rubbish but I blame work for keeping us to busy!
A few images to follow.

But in the meantime a question from Stuart...

If anyone has any photos of typical signalling on the line, and particularly and signalling layout diagrams please let me know.
We are aware of the SRS preview diagrams, but there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to order them, and they don't seem to give full coverage of the area in question anyway.

Can anyone point to any books of the area that give good coverage of the subject?

thanks in advance,
