FOND DU LAC BRANCH

Trials, Tribulations, Triumphs and Thoughts on creating and running this route in Trainz 2009 and 12, and now T:ANE.

  1. GENERAL OVERHAUL

    It's been 18 months since I did anything with the Branch. The COVID-19 epidemic is providing lots of free time so I've started a general overhaul of the route and sessions in T:ANE to improve appearance and try to improve performance.

    • Alignment and track are not involved so existing sessions will continue to operate. The only track change to date is the Mayville Metalworks spur. The 60-lb rail previously installed is invisible so has been replaced.
    • All portal consists have been

  2. Industry, leave my train brake alone!

    However, you can generally prevent this from occurring by adding the 'Advanced Industry Load Configuration' rule, and then configuring the industry to not take control of the trains. Please note that in some

  3. SATURDAY MORNING YARD JOB on the DLS

    FDL Saturday AM Yard Job <KUID:373500:100044> has been approved and should be downloadable within 24 hours.

    It's been tested in SP3 94916 and the latest beta, 97285.

    97285 has blown out Maddy's YARN T Intersections, it seems. There is one on the route which causes a loading error. If you click "Continue" everything runs with no issues, but I've prepared an update to release when HF1 is final anyway.

    Let me know if you find any issues.

  4. FDL FRIDAY AM For T:ANE

    The session FDL Friday AM has been ported to T:ANE, uploaded and approved. It will be available for download within hours.

    Due to a power shortage at Horicon, today's early patrol will be Eastbound sans caboose. First we have to make up the train and take care of an odd job in the West Yard, then do some light work on our way to Horicon.

    This is the first import from 12 to T:ANE SP3. The experience has improved in that there are fewer ghost consists needing attention; the

  5. FDL Fond Du Lac For T:ANE - Route Update

    Version :2 has been uploaded to the DLC and should be available to all within a day or so.

    Track alignment is unchanged and the sessions I've uploaded for it all work with the changes without issues.

    Chief improvement is the replacement of nearly all track with procedural track and removal of nearly all the separate frog assets. Management also decided to upgrade the Rock River trestle at Mayville with a much more substantial structure, in view of the increasingly heavy
