View Full Version : TER Winter Route(s) (Large Pic Warning)

December 18th, 2006, 09:25 PM
Well, i have just about finished my Winter Route.

I will have 2 versions, one with Snow Drifts and one without. The reason for this is that the snow drifts are simply a change in elevation, i raised the ground to simulate snow drifts. It will look good with a rotary plow (Mine should be ready soon i hope) at the front, and with Prowlers K-27 Small Plow, but because of the limitations of Trainz, the snow will not disapear, so it may be annoying to some users, hence why i made 2 versions

its a simulated HO scale layout, its based around a 4x10 board. Although it is a bit wider on all sides, the track is spread withen a 4x10 board, with some mountains, trees, and other objects (like backdrops) outside the board

Still a few things to do, although its a very simple layout, so hopfully people will enjoy it

Note: I have not taken pictures of the layout without drifts, they will come soon, when i finish all the details on the layout with drifts, i will remove them and save it as a seperate layout

almost done now, just have to do the Config file and add in the thumbnails, course first i have to get CMP to stop crashing....that alone is a hard task....

should be ready by the weekend at the latest (course i have been wrong before)

Here is my semi custom temp Rotary Plow, Ex OSL #762, renumbered D&RGW #OT, and converted from Standard Gauge to Narrow Gauge for service on the Rio Grande, although you can see its previous markings bleeding through the new coat of paint :D

I used Prowlers K-37 Tender Trucks, which are standard gauge trucks with the wheels pushed togather


And here is the Layout WITHOUT Snow, as compaired to the 3rd picture from the bottom in my first post

and here is a good shoot pushing the Rotary near a road crossing
