View Full Version : Cayuga Jct.

December 23rd, 2006, 04:14 PM
well this is at WCL i finally started if anyone hasnt seen this route yet heres the map.



warning to all:eek: i accidently made Farewells go insted of SW to the portal it now goes SE to the portal this map will probly change big time as i have put the area in a fictional part of the US/Canadian border so things will change.
industrys are unknown at the moment but the mainline (most of it) will be controled by CSX but the Canadian mainline will be controled by CN just for WCL ;). branches will be US companys in the US and Candian in Canada. mainline passenger in US will be Amtrak (did i spell it right?):confused:
Canadian will be Canadian National.
untill i get another map planed out i will continue northward to Canada.

now to screens this is after an 1hr and a half of work on one baseboard:eek:
(god i didnt know it was going to go this slow!)


an overview of the small yard.


finaly the map of the one baseboard


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from Cayuga Jct!!

um, is it just me or does the map look like sirgibby's Murchison layout?


December 23rd, 2006, 06:31 PM
um, is it just me or does the map look like sirgibby's Murchison layout?

My first thought as well???? :eek:

December 23rd, 2006, 06:37 PM

Its the same thing!!! >:-(

Dude! At least come up with an original Idea!!!

December 23rd, 2006, 07:20 PM
thats why i said the map will change drasticly

originaly posted by titaniclover:

this map will probly change big time as i have put the area in a fictional part of the US/Canadian border so things will change.

i said that as you can see. this was the original idea scince the route started out backwards (oppps on my part) the entire layout plan will change untill i have a vauge idea of whats going on in the route which i do so wait and a new map will come.
just give me time to make a new map idea. the names might stay the same but over all the layout i originaly had is going to be scraped.
i am dreadly sorry sirgibby for this i took the map idea (laying it out on graph paper from you) this is a total acident a new map will soon come.
members stay relaxed an d a new map will be out shortly. thank you.
anyway what do you think so far?

December 23rd, 2006, 07:29 PM
How do you copy an entire route, and call it an accident? Just wondering.

December 23rd, 2006, 07:34 PM
this was one of my best ideas and put it on planing to change it then never did. the idea of sirgibbys was excelent so i started there putting my own touches, i didnt realy finish. then i put it in the border that screwed me up even more then relizing this really screwed me up.
so im starting from scratch yet that town is my start point so i will be doing a totaly different map. so chill out it will change i promise.

December 23rd, 2006, 09:42 PM
heres the new map ive been working on.


the key


well thats it what do you think?

December 23rd, 2006, 09:46 PM
It looks much better.:D


December 23rd, 2006, 09:48 PM
Looks great. I'd like to see a little more screenshots though...

December 23rd, 2006, 09:53 PM
i havent started to much yet i mean i got one baseboard done at the moment! plus im going to do a bit more in this town until i move on. i will post screens when done with 3-5 baseboards. so dont expect much from me for a bit plus its days before chirstmas and i havent gotten my christmas shopping done!!

December 24th, 2006, 06:36 AM
Looks great! Hope to see some screens of the progress. :D

December 24th, 2006, 09:02 AM
yea me too. im going christmas shopping soon so not much will be done today.

December 24th, 2006, 11:21 AM
ok i have a plan formulated to get me through this.:D
1. ill do the mainline just general track, important buildings, ect.
2 after the mainline is done i will back track adding detail and fixing errors
3 next i will do the branch lines in the same way.
note: each branch line is a different company giving variaty.
4 i will start with the coaling lines again in the same way.
5 next is passenger yep you guessed it following step 1and2:rolleyes:
6 finally NG doing exactly the samething again.
as you can see its a pattern so it will keep me i hope on track;)

also i will post picks of progress every Saturday and give a update of changes and other things.
meantime please keep posting ask ?'s comments or concerns i will always get back to you during the week. now for the final screens untill Saturday:
2 worker waiting for a loco guys there wont be locos for sometime so stop standin there!!!

the town is now a small fishin vilige called Iron River.

looking up the river to the town.

do not post to be continued....

thats my progress. what do you think so far? this is a total of 3 baseboards so far.

December 24th, 2006, 09:31 PM
Looking pretty cool, think this will be up for download when you finish

December 25th, 2006, 12:48 PM
hope so and when done i will need Beta Testers.

December 25th, 2006, 06:16 PM
I'll think of testing if it will work with TRS2004, although TRS2006 for Mac should definitely be out by the time your finished, which means I'll have it, but as I said, I'll consider

December 25th, 2006, 09:10 PM
im building in 2006 as thats the only version i have.

December 26th, 2006, 10:41 PM
oppps i did it again. well lets start from the top.
i was making incredible progress with the route then i sat back for a little bit and relaxed well i downloaded this route i cant remeber the name but it started with a "C" anyway it would load or start at all in Trainz so i said "you dont work you dont stay" well in my haste to get rid of the route i accidently deleted Cayuga Jct. so all that progress poof gone up in smoke. well i said i wanted to start somewhere else. i havent exactly started as the main city Baudette is in the middle i decided to start there. im currently making track plans for the enormus yard so the pic are to be posted until next week. well im deciding to make it much better so dont worry about it. anyway that progress is gone but as i say no pain no gain. plus im working on my track work and other techinces so it will be a bit messy. untill next time see ya!
Happy Holidays & A Happy New Year from Cayuga Jct.!!!

December 26th, 2006, 10:50 PM
You've gota be careful! (how can you be wishing us happy holidays from cayuga jct. when it's gone?:rolleyes: )


December 26th, 2006, 10:59 PM
because i restared it! ive got the mainline done mostly in the yard so far depends on how i layout the yard one station and the mainline at the moment. is that enough progress to say that at least?

December 27th, 2006, 07:35 AM
I'm starting a small route (I'm a little less then 13, just to tell you) called "Pithcfork Island." It's a small island with a few industrys, and mainley 3 commuter rail lines, all starting at one main terminus. I'm off for the week, soexpect a finished product SOON!!!!!!!

December 27th, 2006, 07:56 AM
oppps i did it again. well lets start from the top.
i was making incredible progress with the route then i sat back for a little bit and relaxed well i downloaded this route i cant remeber the name but it started with a "C" anyway it would load or start at all in Trainz so i said "you dont work you dont stay" i have alot of routes that have had that fate on my system too:D

December 27th, 2006, 10:10 AM
it sucks dont it to relize you deleted something you didnt want to delete.

December 27th, 2006, 11:37 AM
Sorry for your loss. Make sure to backup the route after each time you build on it. If you don't burn it on a CD, atleast put it on a USB-stick, a map writes quick to a USB-memory.

Cheer up!


December 28th, 2006, 12:43 PM
yea im going to do that!!!

December 28th, 2006, 06:44 PM
great shotz!!!:)

December 28th, 2006, 10:56 PM
thank you but those shots are if you can say are history as thats was accidently deleted what you are seeing.

December 29th, 2006, 01:05 PM
well i have nice progress but its going slow. the US portion of the yard is almost finished but i need to tweak a lot of the track work which ive been teadely working on. as far as that there has been no advancedment. whats worrying me even more is that this project will never be completed....:( and even worse i need to find a station and a place to put it in there. am about to abandon the project but i started it and i will finish it so ill keep pressing onward. no screenshots my computer is acting stupid and i cant get in to photobucket.com just my luck. well i better keep working.:)
ive been thinking if i could seperate it into sections like the mainline and branchs the the coaling lines and so on then merge them together. what do you guy think or should i do it my original idea way.:confused:

December 29th, 2006, 01:08 PM
Just make a circle track and call it your route....Add some tress and bldgs and there...Your all done...Then if you loose it you can easily make another one and not complain about your big loss....

December 29th, 2006, 01:11 PM
Yea start with something small. I know it sounds good on paper but it never turns out that way if it's your first time.

December 29th, 2006, 01:28 PM
good point ill work at from time to time while working on smaller routes. yea thats what ill do it i will still be making it but it wont be my main focus.

December 29th, 2006, 04:38 PM
good atitude, keep pushing on!


December 29th, 2006, 06:48 PM
thanks john i will. you wont see me post here for a while so relax if i dont post for sometime. i will though come in and out of the forum often to see whats going on and what new content is being made and help people in need.

December 30th, 2006, 01:21 AM
oh, ive done that before! except i didn't look at the forum... then the great forum crash hapened right when i came back!

December 30th, 2006, 01:35 PM
well that suck not to have support from other members.
and while the slow process begins im going to do somethings to Toronto Rail Lands 1954, which was included in TRS2006 and modifie it i just need permision from the creators.

December 30th, 2006, 02:10 PM
Just don't re-release anything if you modify it. It shouldn't matter then.

December 30th, 2006, 03:08 PM
what do you mean re release TrainMan12?

December 30th, 2006, 03:09 PM
If you completley change the Toronto Raillands, just don't upload it or hand anything out. You said something about modifying it and getting the creators permission- you won't need to if you don't upload it or anything.

December 30th, 2006, 03:11 PM
but im will proble upload it. so i will need there permision right?
