Hey all old people ( And lots of new people ? )
Kane98, I went looking for my copy of Ropes Creek and found a very old ( Very crap to my standards of making ) version but if you dont mind id like to give it another go at finishing it myself, If not your more then welcome to take the stupid thing off my hands.

Scott, Havent seen any of your Brisbane photos since atleast a year ago when i was running it for you and dayum its great now, Love the grass detail.

Will get photos up if i can remember how to do so.:)

Great to see a few non Aussie's doing some Aussie routes


I agree wholeheartedly. It is nice to see how people from other parts of the world see us Aussie's. Nice to see one of the more talented Yanks turning his attention to Australia, too. Should be interesting to see how he interprets the info he has available.

Also, before i go, could i ask what year livestock traffic was finally phased out in NSW? I can't find the info anywhere, and i'm sure i've seen a photo of a stock train dated in the mid 80's.

There is also the "UK Bullhead" track on the DLS... different versions for Trainz/TRS/TS, and also has rusty equivalents to cater for lesser/non used sections. I'm biased, as I love this track. Reckon Muliebuck can back me up too.

Warning however, is don't use it in conjunction with Speedtreez. It's one or the other, or your frame rates take a pummelling.


Also agree with the non-Aussies having a go at Aussie Routes. What a great community this can be.

railway simulation,
What the other guys are trying to say is:- when you quote peoples posts, if they have pics in them, use a hyperlink as explained earlier. This helps those who have slower computers than others load pages easier. They aren't loading the same pics two or three times. If you want to ask a question about a specific piece of content in a pic/screenshot, delete the others and keep the one that has what you want to ask about. Hope that makes more sense for you.

Matt.
I remember working livestock trains as late as 1987 but that would have been about it. In 1988 I transferred to the suburbans and I remember taking a road trip to Parkes and being surprised that there were some South Australian wagons carrying cattle albeit in what looked like a containerised sort of wagon. The Homebush Sale Yards were closed in about 1989 as well so that would have been pretty much the end for hauling livestock.

It wouldn't have gone into the '90s anyway.

Railwayz

Railwayz,

Thanks for that info. Yet another tidbit to file away for future reference. I am currently working on a fictional route set in the late 80's to early 90's, so it's not going to stretch credibility to much if i run the odd livestock train, then.
If it does, then there's always the good old theoritical question 'what if?' In this case, what if the railways decided not to give up an entire traffic (and it's associated revenue) until the early 90's (about '93-ish?) I think that will be my way out of this one, because i want to run livestock trains!

Anyways, on the subject of my next route, here's a screenshot.

http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/6385/nswcoastbellsckoil.jpg (http://img204.imageshack.us/i/nswcoastbellsckoil.jpg/)
The isolation and lack of road access mean that a boat trip is the only way to take pictures of trains along the Bell's Creek section of the Main Northern line. Such a trip has enabled this snap of 8104 and a sister engine, both in candy livery, to be taken as they haul an oil train south on a wet morning.

If that's WIP, Ghosty, the end result promises to be pretty special.

Davido,

That is some simply stunning work! It looks so incredibly bloody realistic. I keep thinking 'Mullet Creek" every time i see it. You have said though that it is a route that is only 'inspired' by the area. Mate, if that's what a fictional version looks like, i'd love to see what an actual proto-route looks like. Because, as i think i've said, i live in the area, and you do it justice, mate.
Really, those shots are just...... well, actually, words can't do justice here, i'm sorry to say.

Thank you for making my day with these shots.

Raichase, to answer your question: If Davido didn't make electrified routes, he wouldn't need the V-sets. So pipe down, please, before you go upsetting people!:p

Bearcat,
Can you expand a little on the bit about the QR sparkies. I don't quite follow what was going on there and I get the feeling that there is something in that, I could learn.
Thanks
Glen
Well it was a statement about using or building end of class locomotives as test beds

The last 86 class loco built in sydney was bulit not having 2 Co Bogies but was built with 3 Bo bogies - therefore a tri-Bo as it was/is called. It was built as a test unit being the first tri-Bo in Australia.

The data gatherd went on to assist with the enginnering for the first QR sparkies.

This unit was retired with less than 10 years service IIRC, which for a locomotive is very young.

Just a pity that Frieight Corp killed the sparkies in NSW.

46 Class 4601-4640 40 units
85 class 8501-8510 10 units
86 class 8601-8650 50 units

85 & 86 could Mu with each other but the 46's could only Mu with members of it own class if running with 85 or 86 needed 2 crews. None of the sparkes could Mu with the smoke blowing fleet.

Enkidoh,

We all feel that way here, when our works are held up to the light of such Surveyor Gods as Davido, Muliebuck and Forest_Runner.:eek: The trick is to judge based not on what they might think, but rather on what you do think. If it looks alright to you, then post a few pics. You may be surprised at the reactions. Take me for example; i posted my first shots a few months ago, thinking they were crap, and said as much. But i have been complimented on my work by several people. So much so, i've put three of them on the DLS!

And anyway, if it does need improvement, this (the Aussie) community is by far one of the best and friendliest, when it comes to offering advice and ideas for improvement.

So go ahead, take the plunge.

Hi Trainzers!:wave:

Today was very exciting. I took a train trip from Robina to South Bank at 9:00am to see an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet at the QUT.... yay, Shakespeare!:sleep:

So anyhoo, on the way up I saw NR29 in Pacific National colours towing a couple of freight cars, somewhere near Moorooka. Then on the return trip, (I was in the IMU 160 series for that one:D ) I saw QRNational 2836 at the head of another train in Moorooka/Clapham yards.

So that was my day, and I hope you enjoyed it.
Happy Trainzing,;)

So it's not, then? I assumed it might be,because it meets the req's for this comp: Transition era, coal, mainline junction etc. It's all there, and it does look pretty good. I didn't mean to pressure you, Jamie, so don't go entering it in the comp if you don't think it's good enough.

Jamie,
Those shots, for me, looked pretty good. The greenery around the tracks looks realistic, its wild and thick and open country. It looks to be a track forged through the countryside which in the days of steam it was. It was men using dynamite to blast cuttings through hillsides, working with pick and shovel. If you can't guess, I like it alot. Out of those shots, two of the close-ups have gone into a folder I use for my desktops.
Keep them coming folks

Nice screen shots, hope you liked it. I am close to completing the actually full branch line. I decided to make it a full branch, as it was so better than my other fictional I have going. Over all I got about 15 kilometers, 3 small stations and the port itself. I have got a basic Session to run along side it, with some freighters working away and passenger service running back and fourth every so often.

Thanks for posting the screen shots, quite enjoyed seeing them :)

July 16th, 2010, 08:43 AM

it comes down to the track used, and how you are laying out the turnouts. some creators make 1m or 2m repeat track for this process. the dls has several guide tools that help layout turnouts, check under the username natvander i think he made several tools for this purpose. i hope that helps.

Hi everyone,

I must say there are some really great screenshots of recent, I have no idea of where to start in Congratulating all those posting. So I'll just say

"Congratulations to all on your screenshots, great work"

Jamie, I am rather impressed with your work, congratulations on some fine scenery detail. In the shot above I would try to fix the crossing though I know that is not easy. I can never get them to be exactly right but maybe a little more "playing" around can help out.

For your question about the weeds near the tracks, I would think that they should not be so close to the tracks. I would have thought that with the passing of trains they would "naturally" die near a track or they would be cleared a distance back by track gangs to stop any possible fires. Just a thought.

Hi guys,

Some nice pics on this thread the last few days. Rastis, i like your shots there. A good way to use a good site. Well done.

Pete, good to hear you finally got the silo's good enough for upload.

Anyway, a few shots from my WIP.

Hello Cjgeddes, You should have mail in your inbox shortly :) just finished up a part before I send it to you. Still needs some work. But the small industrial area is now able to operate as well. Thought I would finish that before sending you a copy. Be mindful, still aways to go with this route yet. But it is functional as it is.

An aerial view of my small industrial area - no where near finished, basic building placement, tracks etc. But a lot of small detail left to do.

Those are reskins of the 47 class into the liveries they are in today. Try searching for "47 Class", and if that fails, they are listed under their engine numbers "4717" and "4703". The former is the red and white one, and comes both with and without "R&H Transport" logos, and the green one comes with the option of LVRF logos.

EDIT: Also, some screenshots of a new silo to replace the VR one on my route-in-progress. Note that I got a bit carried away taking screenshots, and I forgot to set the catch points!

It's hard to find any significant info online. The best bet is this book, which is incredibly comprehensive.

Coal, Railways and Mines - Brian Robert Andrews

I ended up getting two copies. The revised edition had some more material, and I'd almost used the first one to death... Unfortunately both are back in Australia, but the second edition contains some more info. There are a few other books out there, but this would be considered the ultimate 'gospel' of the Richmond Vale Railway. It's an expensive book, but there's a very good reason. Incredible photos, info, maps, grade diagrams... Everything needed, really.

I was working on the RVR (or at least the track over DEM terrain) before moving to the UK. It's a shame I don't have that. I had one version based in the early 80s before it closed just going to Stockrington, and one with the track at 'full' extent based in 1955.

I really ought to get that computer shipped here...

I do hope the author is continuing his work on a simillar book on the South Maitland Railways.

Hello Goanna,

Bearcat is correct they are Natvanders signals, picture 3 is 3asp Auto and picture 4 is 3asp RD (Right diverge) signals. All are on DLS and I think most are included in 2006, 2009 and 2010 if I remember rightly.

Thanks axe, glad you like it. It's developing slowly and steadily, by extending the line out as well as some improvements and tweaks to the original module. Hopefully it evolves into something meaningful to release at a later date.

Hey guys,

Good to see Pete's silo's finding homes on a few routes. Now we just need a few shots of the Flour Mill. Some more nice shots from Tanvaras and Forest_Runner, as well.

Rastis, nice pics, however i do have one tiny criticism. I'm not trying to be a know-all here, as i'm sure there are exceptions, but every time i have seen the 81+48 combo, the 81's have been leading. I'm just saying, and as i said, i'm sure someone can think of a few exceptions to the rule.
Nice shots all the same.

Well, there you go! That explains a bit, then. You've learned something new, then, and as i said, someone will probably come up with exceptions to the rule, with photos to back it up, knowing this lot.:D Love the pics anyway. Keep it up.

mattm and rastis - I was just about to congratulate rastis on his awesome looking plains (the last few screenshots are the best, especially the sunset shot), and to congratulate rastis on hiring a gunzel crew! mattm, a crew will usually prefer to drive the nicer locomotive, which is why you normally see the 81 leading. However, if the 81 class has a broken dunny, or perhaps the crew wouldn't mind getting out and taking a photo or two, it's not uncommon to see a trailing unit leading... Happens occasionally with the R&B crew at Clyde putting 8050 on the Kandos cement as an "extra" loco (normally rostered for a single 81 class), and then the 80 finds itself in the lead. Not something I've had a chance to photograph, but I'm looking forward to having a crack one of these days! Love those 80 class - I'd love to see a Freightcorp and/or a PN model in Trainz. You can bet they'll be leading my 81 class wherever they may wander!

Jake,

I told you so!:hehe::hehe: Raichase, thanks for proving a point. I take it by 'nicer', you mean the loco with all the mod-cons? Because i prefer the 48's myself. Don't know why, i just do.

Also, at what point would the crew be in any position to take photos when working a train? Sounds kind of, well, not negligent, just odd, is all. I mean, aren't they supposed to be concentrating on other things?

Of course we do, we're train buffs! I'm sure a lot of the crews have a soft spot for the 48 class. However, if you've got to sit in the thing for 8+ hours, and it's only 3 degrees outside, you'd probably pick the loco with a working heater, comfy seat and reasonably draft free, spacious interior ;). I know I would!


Also, at what point would the crew be in any position to take photos when working a train? Sounds kind of, well, not negligent, just odd, is all. I mean, aren't they supposed to be concentrating on other things?

Time and a place really - obviously you couldn't pull up at Woy Woy and jump out for a photo, but when your train is waiting at a red signal in the middle of nowhere, or when you've broken down, or you're waiting for wagons to load before moving, etc. A number of friends of mine take some excellent photos "on the job", at times when they would otherwise be sitting around playing with themselves or throwing ballast a fence post or something equally pointless!

Fair enough, i suppose. don't know why that didn't occur to me. It would get fairly boring sitting round doing nothing i guess. I don't know why you chose that first example though!

mattm and rastis - I was just about to congratulate rastis on his awesome looking plains (the last few screenshots are the best, especially the sunset shot), and to congratulate rastis on hiring a gunzel crew! mattm, a crew will usually prefer to drive the nicer locomotive, which is why you normally see the 81 leading. However, if the 81 class has a broken dunny, or perhaps the crew wouldn't mind getting out and taking a photo or two, it's not uncommon to see a trailing unit leading... Happens occasionally with the R&B crew at Clyde putting 8050 on the Kandos cement as an "extra" loco (normally rostered for a single 81 class), and then the 80 finds itself in the lead. Not something I've had a chance to photograph, but I'm looking forward to having a crack one of these days! Love those 80 class - I'd love to see a Freightcorp and/or a PN model in Trainz. You can bet they'll be leading my 81 class wherever they may wander!
hi

it sounds like you like the 80 class. i've saw it on the lead of the kandos cement. here is a video i got of it leading. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPWDFk-7rI0, i hope you like it.

Never heard or these can you describe them better, were you have seen them and what do they do.

Never heard or these can you describe them better, were you have seen them and what do they do.

Whoops, my mistake. I meant tonnage signs, as opposed to signals. They are fitted to signals at the foot of a rising grade, to prevent heavy goods trains stopping at signals on a grade, which could cause them to stall.

It basically says that trains of either 75% of full load or trains over prescribed load (as set out in working timetable) must wait until the signal the sign is attached to shows either full clear or medium, depending on the sign's location, i'm guessing.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

Jake,

I told you so!:hehe::hehe: Raichase, thanks for proving a point. I take it by 'nicer', you mean the loco with all the mod-cons? Because i prefer the 48's myself. Don't know why, i just do.

Also, at what point would the crew be in any position to take photos when working a train? Sounds kind of, well, not negligent, just odd, is all. I mean, aren't they supposed to be concentrating on other things?

Matt.
Matt,

There have been many times when 81's and 48's have worked together but as Raichase says, it's usually the 81 class leading because it's more comfortable. Interestingly though the 48 class should lead because the traction motor long term amperage rating on the 48 class is lower than that of the 81 class.

With the 81 class leading it is possible to burn out the traction motors of the poor little 48er, which I've seen happen. That's the way it was supposed to be back in the good old days anyway. I've got to admit that there weren't many time when I had the 48 on the front although I think they both are the best two locomotive classes ever built!

Thats intresting as I was always taught that you had the higest power Locomotive on the front and lower rated ones to the back, the reason being if the samller loco wheel sliped you had less chance off pushing them off the track. Well that was 20 years ago.

Intresting things are loco cabs the 45 class cabs was not as cramped as a 48 but just as bad in the wind due to draughts. And let not start on running a 44 with the B cab leading.

I hadn't heard about the wheelslip problem though. B end? Did you come from South Australia or Victoria originally? That may explain the different teachings if you did.

And you're absolutely right about the 45 class cab. Nice a roomy. Nice and chilly too. I always liked the 48 class cab because it was cramped and cosy. Except when the window beside you didn't seal propely. Then it was hell on earth in winter.

Beautiful shot, mate. First time I've ever seen a 48 leading an 81, and it looks kinda weird. Probably cause I'm so used to seeing the 81 leading. I like it though, and may use the combo a bit more on my route.
Nice use of the silo and mill, too.

Hi Matt,

Yeah I find it weird seeing it that way, but since some were talking about it I had to load one into my route and take it for a run. I like the 81 class a lot, Probably my favorite loco. Have had a few runs in one when I was younger. It was a blast.

I have a book that I like looking through, it's called "sketches from beside the line" by Kenneth G Bowen. It has wonderful sketches of all things railway. Some of you may be familiar with his work. Sadly he is no longer with us. Anyway I was looking at a station scene of Gilgandra NSW and there was an indistinct building in the far background. Luckily he did a sketch of the building a few pages on. It's a sketch of McLeods Mill, which also is no longer with us as it burnt down in the 70's

You will have to allow me some poetic licence here as it only gave partial views of the sides facing the tracks and not the back. So based on the sketch and again using known object sizes I have come up with this.

http://pics.victrainz.com.au/ad602000/mc%27leods%20mill%20gilgandra.jpg

this will allow you to have a couple of different types of mills.

Looks good. Another must have item. There are to few Aussie mills for trainz, that i can find anyway. The only one i know of is the built-in Allied Mill. I look forward to this one, as will others i'm sure.

Anyway, 'nough yapping. I thought since i started the discussion on the 81 vs. 48 locos, i had better post a few shots.

As with Trent's shots, the areas shown are under construction, so you'll have to exuse the rather basic texture job, and lack of trees/buildings/signs of civilization.:D

Forest Runner,

To a large extent, urban areas have non-native trees, especially in parks or generally open areas. On a train from say, Newcastle to Sydney, you're in the bush for most of the time. Then you start to see more non-native species in folks back yards, and then perhaps a park.

Of course, there's still going to be plenty of native species in urban areas with parks. Just more diversity.

Really, i don't know why you worry. There is very little to criticize in these shots, and believe me when i say i looked.:hehe:About the only thing i would suggest improving is the sandstone cutting you have there. To break up the uniformity, try rotating the textures as you apply them, and apply one or two darker textures over the main one, using a smaller cursor radius. Just make sure they match up fairly close, so they blend in better.
I know how hard it is to get a realistic looking sandstone rockface, because I have several in my current WIP, and I'm still experimenting with them, trying to get them right.

Other than that, it looks pretty good, in my opinion anyway. I'm sure someone will be along soon to criticize further, and point out all the errors that I've missed, but what the hey. We all have our standards, and we'll never please everyone.

As usual, nice screenies all. Similar to Alco, I get a kick out of seeing updates each day.

I think I might be getting the hang of this Outback gig at last.

At Flinders, there is no "loco"... locomotives are watered and "serviced" on either the Main Line, or in this instance - the Crossing Loop.
The track behind the locomotive is a lay-by track, which features; a small coal stage, 25,000 gallon water tower along with attached water treatment facility (behind), and the track maintenance sheds.

Could also depend on the drawgear capacity of the wagon itself. I've heard that during initial tests with the 57 class, there were a few couplers that were ripped out of the drawgear pocket on the leading wagon, and that following this, a major program of drawgear strengthening on wagons, and possibly locos as well, was undertaken. If this is the case, then I suspect that there would have been a few rules as to where a 57 should be marshalled in respect to other locos while this work was being undertaken.

Alright, i know they aren't much at the moment, but i feel happy that i have reached this point of my route. After nearly two weeks, and having laid 15 K's of track, and landscaped/textured ~20 baseboards, i finally got to a point where i could start putting down some urban scenery.

To you more experienced route builders, this may not seem like that big an accomplishment, but to me it is a fairly significant milestone. Having managed to arrive at this point is a boost to my confidence that is very welcome. With all my other routes, apart from Leycester and Wallah Flats, obviously, I had given up long before the 5th baseboard had been placed. I think that now, it's not going to be so easy to give up. I will back up my work so far, though, just in case. Can never be too sure.

A traffic jam at Runcorn, where's the cops when you need them???

Keep up the good work everyone.

That is closer to the truth than I like to admit Ryan. Particularly at that crossing. Is better now after the trackworks added the extra line but you can see some cars come close to this pic at peak hour sometimes. Good work as always Ryan. Would love a run on that layout myself still. Good work too Ghosty as always. Good luck for the comp.

Glen

P.S. Had a second look at that image and was wondering; where did the SC plate come from and the sparkies interior? Thanks.

Hi Glen

The interior is by PEV ('QR SMU Interior' IIRC). There is also an IMU version that has a speedo that can show 140kph. She super control sign is very old, but I remember getting it from the DLS. It was in a pack of various station signs found in Brisbane (bus interchange signs, etc).

PS - Yes, I've felt my morning express braking very, very hard approaching that crossing on a couple of occasions over the years, I suspect we may have even hit the skids once.

Thanks for the kind words.

Hi Forest Runner

What track are you using for your narrow gauge division?? Looks good. When I eventually get 2010, yours n Axe's n everyone else will be the first thing that I download!!!!

Thanks, SARRailways :D:):D:)

I'd download all of elvenor's "3ft 6in" track from the DLS, if you're genuinely interested in 1067mm. The rails of all of his track versions match up really well too... so you get continuity with bridges and rails only type transitions. Kuid is 63290.

The specific track I have on Flinders Plains is "3ft 6in Dirt + Weeds Ballast" - kuid 63290:38093.

Ok, it's been nearly 24 hours, and no-one seems to have noticed, or we're all being polite and hoping the error corrects itself without prompting. Have another look, and you will notice that 4497 has been incorrectly identified as 4897. There, I said it. It's out in the open now. It has been bugging me since i saw it yesterday afternoon.

Alco power/D9007 Pinza
the 422 class was introduced in 1969/1970, In 1980, 42220 was rebuilt by Clyde Engineering, having its generator replaced with a EMD model AR16-D14, and equipped with EMD's dash-2 electrics and “Super Series” wheel slip technology. It was in effect, a test bed for many of the features incorporated in to the 81 class. IIRC the livery applied to 42220 was modified to suit the nature of the loco.

there are very many non accurate events happening within the sim ( coned boilered 53's & 55's with commonwealth tenders is a pet of mine - all the surviving standard good's classes had been reboilered well and truly by the time the commonwealth tenders were introduced), but at the end of the day it is only a sim (game) - and users and content creators can create and use what they want, how they want

Hi Pete. It's incredibly flattering to pique the interest of one our Content Creating legends around here. Wow!

Similiar to my Melton Valley/Vale modules, I'll be releasing this narrow gauge effort in the short term future. I've been getting some encouraging PM's and e-mails on it, as it seems the different and obscure is raising some eyebrows.

Also, I'm considering "lapsing" the little projects I'm involved in and trying to get my hands on a Quorn to Hawker DEM. I know it's a sizeable project of very little scenic variety and proto operational possibilities, but it's just an impulse right now.

I have been having problems with computer thats why i havnt said much about the stockinbingal line at all unable to work on any thing due to the system shuting down all the time when on the game.

Dont know what it is but iam going to try a low profile layout to test the problem to find out what it is iam going to make a small route from my mind thats going to be in the outback australia.

I may need to buy a new bigger system for it.

My #1 recommendation to any Aussie 09/10 newbie would be to download axe's Georgetown-Tarin Rocks Route, mate. It's complete, perfectly balanced, offers infinite hours of operational fun & excellence, and inspirational for the prospective route builder young & old.

Should be, and would expect it to be, a built-in route for the next edition/version as far as I'm concerned... provided content in the route is not inexplicably obseleted to something lesser and/or unsuitable for the route as they did with some TS2010 offerings.

Could not agree more Forest_runner. One of the best routes I have downloaded and still use today :) It's a great inspirer in surveyor to look around and get some great ideas from this exceptional route.

Axe1970's masterpiece is a keeper and if you haven't already downloaded it - "Your missing out!" Download it now, you wont be disappointed.

Great screenshots all round as usual :)

@ Hert, Great screenshot :) To upload, locate your route file in CM3.2 and right click it and choose "Upload" which will move it to the upload tab on the left hand side. From there you can proceed to upload it to the DLS. It's fairly simple once you get the hang of it. Look forward to seeing your route soon.

I have recently started on a Narrow Gauge route using SAR and QR Narrow Gauge content. One of the QR Narrow Gauge items is the QR BRM NG TRS Wagon. It is not NG, But more like SG. GLT0145 if you are still out there, could you please fix the bogeys or something, because I am not that great at fixing and creating.

Forest_Runner,

I had quite forgotten about Axe's spectacular Georgetown-Tarin Rocks route. It has been some weeks since any pics have appeared in this thread, so it slipped from my mind. Nevertheless, i stand by what i said earlier, in regards to both your work, and that of Tanvaras. They would be the first '09 items to come from the DLS, followed, of course, by Georgetown-Tarin Rocks.
Also, going back to pics of said route not appearing, it hardly needs to. There is some spectacular work appearing in this thread of late; the two of you producing some brilliant results, as well as Jamie's efforts. And i agree with Mitch456yui, in his assessment of Hert's work: For a Yank, it isn't half bad.

Keep it up guys.
