Much Appreciated Andrew!Really nice modeling work, George! These are some really good models, congrats on making them! And very beautiful shots, everyone! I love seeing how you've changed up the SnC Alex, it really is for the better
I very much like the sound of a pre-grouping S&C overhaulMuch Appreciated Andrew!
I haven't done half as much to make S&C look newer as you have. I just swapped the older track assets for one of Nexusdj's excellent track selections and supplanted the older environment textures with a mix from both Euromodeller's and Clam1952's outstanding ground textures. (God rest their souls..) The rest is just me running TRS19 on moderate performance instead of bare bones settings.
I've been thinking about overhauling the route as a whole but I am more interested in the idea of doing a Pre-Grouping S&C instead. The idea of running Midland, LNWR and NER Content has become something of an interest for me and if I ever get around to it that's probably what I will do. For now, it's just a fun little thing for some leisure running when I get burned out on route building, nothing more and nothing less.
The SR Project is first and foremost for me though. London Charing Cross isn't going to build itself after all!
Hi Forester! It would have been a nice ride!I can't wait to get off in Ashby and ride that double decker!
Hi SRKing783! I'm building the Midland Railway route from Leicester - Burton, running through the coal and clay rich counties of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Ashby is pretty much in the middle of the route and is a junction for the Melbourne branch to Derby too. I'm modeling it on the 1880-1930s period. I know it's a pretty big time gap but I it covered the busiest era of the MR and LMS.I'm really enjoying how Ashby's coming along! Not sure if you've ever said this, but where and when is the route based on?
And honestly I'm not sure exactly how anyone can be sick of this route, it's coming along really nicely and I love your attention to detail!
Everything is looking outstanding George! I've been gradually gaining interest in the Midland Railway and the other Pre-Grouping Companies of the LMS through my own independent research and my work on projects with my good friend Barney. (Particulary the L&Y, LNWR and especially the NSR.) As I was delving into research on the MR, I found a few different resources that I think you might like.MR timber station building for any pre-grouping fans... Based off real photos. Seems like quite a widely used design.
