    The goal is to release it to the public. Last shot for now, the aux tracks/roundhouse in its first iteration.

    DSP&P update ... Asking here as well has anyone got a better replacement for the engine shed at Boras Pass its spose to be sandstone and wood frame under construction has Turntable, water and coal within. Trying to keep it as low polly count as I can so no really dense forests for one thing starts with pines in the canyon and aspens for the rest, still working on wall heights even though basement will be no celin

    Has anyone got DSP&P #2 & #8 working in Tane, seem to run but no chuff chuff sounds from bogie.


    Any comments?

    default session has the trains that were used to show off the layot, freight you drive to Beckenbridge picking up helper at Como to Boras Pass, the mixed you drive back to Como and the passenger you drive from there back to the portal I have not put in yet.

    For those who have not seen the previous posts this is a layot I am building just to have some where to run the Mason Bogies that I will be happy to share if anyone wants it.

    Hey Tom. So I looked through Ben's DLS stuff to see if he'd built something like it. I also went and looked at a few track diagrams. That is wild that the turntable and other stuff is indoors.

    Best I could find that would fit the bill would be something like the single stall engine house made by Ben Dorsey or Pencil42. I tried reskinning Ben's single stall engine house into something similar to their roundhouse style.

    Sort of died on the table on me:


    If it turns out you like it I can put another hour into it but if not that's cool too.

    I still wonder if Ben made it and its just been lost in the shuffle due to it having a specific name. I suppose in a pinch (if Ben didn't make it after all), you could use a large open shed spline with a ton of construction materials around. Framing boards? Perhaps frames already built that can be leaned?

    Very cool layout Tom!

    As for my own project, well I got a little distracted



    Ok I got really distracted.

    Tom,

    I did two things to get sound from these locos. First, I opened the trailing truck cdp's and removed the "direct-drive 1" lines from the config files. That line should only be in the driver config file. Second, I opened the engine cdp and changed the config file replacing the original engine sound file with the engine sound file used by Ben Neal's Clear Lake #12, <kuid:96914:53016>. If you don't already have it you will need to download it from Ben's site. In the event you don't like that sound, you can replace it with another of your choice that works.

    Actually Tom that looks fantastic. Very nice kit-bash. I see what you mean but it might just be a matter of marrying the scene together, maybe changing the elevated coal staith out for some wooden ones on the ground?
