Here is a thread for a man we all like. The idiots of this world have forced him to give up a loved hobby and we have lost a loved friend.
Thank You so much Dermmy, you were a personal friend of this community.

This thread is in his recognition so post pics of his routes for his legacy.

What's happened?

Dermmy has gone on an apparently indefinite (although he could come back any time) Trainz-break, due to real-life circumstances. ;)

Regards.

download the jointed rail signal coronas.
Type safetran in the scenery section.

I come to the Forum almost every day to keep on top of what is happening in the world of Trainz. I do not recall seeing anything about Andy's leaving but if that is the case, then I hope that whatever the reason, things work out well for him.

He of course has created some of the best routes in which Aurans tracks have been laid on and just about all of us in the world of Trainz has benefited from his creativity and talent. Whether it has been through screenshots of his routes or the routes themselves downloaded (I have enjoyed both) his contributions have been both admired and respected. Time heals all things they say, so maybe we will see him again.

Thanks Andy for what you have given me personally in Trainz. Good luck my friend.

The Case for his retirement is about a week ago, his site was hacked(probably by a fellow trainzer by his hints) and he almost had it fixed, but it was hacked again. So no longer is he trying. His rules for his content still apply. Anyone have any pics to keep his legacy alive.

Here I thought I could blame my local residents who fit this term.

Another feud? Seems like once or twice a month someone wants to feud for some reason.
Site hacking makes as much sense as spamming and sending viruses, it just shows whoever did it has a desperate need to get a life.

If it is true that the site was hacked (whether that is the fact, or not) ... perhaps installing a "Register a UN & PW" to "Log In" (like what JointedRail and TPR require), would prevent hacking ?

Unforutnately it doesn't matter because he has retired uncertainly.

If I read his comment correctly he was threatened with legal action of some kind over his site or the content thereon, enough so that he consulted a lawyer. Since all lawyers advise you to shut up publically about whatever the problem is until it is legally resolved I think that is exactly what Dermmy is doing at present. I would venture to say he will be back at some point in the not too distant future.

I would hope so. We both knew him well. and it would be a shame to see him go, but he did state there was never a problem with his domain, or rights.

And here are some from EK3, I used the V&O engines, simply because they looked so natural in that setting!

for some reason those last shots of EK3 seem like the last run on he Afton Division of McClelland's old layout. Seems to fit here too... :(

It kinda does, but either way those are some great shots.

The VM (Virginia Midland), a fictional railroad, did have a route into eastern Kentucky that stopped at Hazard.
VM was a railroad that merged (in fictional history) with the V&O and the AM.

So in theory, that isn't entirely inaccurate!

Good start Josh. Here's a few from me on EK3:

Correct. V&O, AM and VM trains could be used on EK.

This is the EK3 with UP & MNA power. The route also reminds me of Southwest Missouri and Northern Arkansas landscape.

I think these photos really show the detail and dedication Andy put into his routes.

Well now thats why the V&O power looks so natural in East Kentucky!

It does look natural, but it is some fairly generic scenery.
