View Full Version : Something Dutch

August 8th, 2009, 10:32 AM
Hi All,

These are mainly to see how far I could get making a dutch landscape with the available content I've collected all over the place the past year(s).

En route.

Arrival at some small village, time to stretch the legs.

View at the end of the platform.

Exiting the station.

Going for a photo opportunity

And another one.

The village road with greenhouses at the other side.

A last look along the line.

Walking back taking a shortcut through the greenhouses.

On board again on the way to the next stop. Note that the name on the signal box doesn't really mean the real place looks like this.

Hello Jananton,:)

Nice to see some good screenshots from your country. May I ask you where you found these dutch semaphores? (are they available for 2004?)

Bonjour Frédo,

Thanks for your kind words.

Hello Darkdan,

The semaphores will become available, don't ask me when, but these are from a bèta testset that was available via a dutch trainz site forum. It will be a large set since, as you might know, signalling in the semaphore days was based on the route taken through switches. So instead of the todays daylight signals that often just show a number for advised speed, the semaphore's position of one arm in combination with others for the same track gave an indication wheater straight through or divergence is set and so speed reduction was indicated. The set that's created by RikJ will have all possible combinations and a rule that needs to be included in the session settings so it will all function as it did in real life. I presume its name will be something like "Signal NS 1937". If you want to read more about semaphore signalling in the Netherlands go here (http://www.seinarm.nl/seinarm/Armsein/tabid/56/Default.aspx) (in dutch) and someone mentioned the definite anouncement of release will be found here (http://www.selsmakke.nl/index.html).(dutch too I'm afraid)
