    You are doing some beautiful work Graeme. Even Goorambat looks nearly ready to move in.

    Keep it up mate, cheers,
    Roy

    Thank you Roy, really just the basics done so far with a lot more fleshing out to do.
    cheers

    Grazlash,
    Wonderful jobs you are doing on the "renovations." Morristown overlooking the depot looks amazing, especially with the seasonal shots after your upgrades. The one of the town in Winter was stunning. I really enjoy your seasonal shots for comparison, as they really make your work shine. I'm really looking foreward to when you kick these babies out the door for us to play with.

    I ran into a little problem with the Colbinabbin branch where a creek and a major irrigation channel intersect. I was stumped to begin with and Google earth gave only a few clues, but as it was a bit of an engineering marvel there happened to be a photo online which confirmed my suspicion. They built a sump!




    There is still a fair amount of tidying up to do around this area and I've now found a use for huge concrete wall splines.
    cheers

    It looks almost real to me, Graeme.

    Your creek/river bed textures look great too.

    Great stuff mate. Cheers,
    Roy

    I agree with Roy3b3. I thought you'd taken a picture at first. It looks great!

    MORE RENOVATIONS

    EAST KENTUCKY 3
    The first step was to swap out the billboard trees for speedtrees, using a mix of RMM and Mcguirel trees to broaden the colour range and the route has a good cover of grass with sparse trackside shrubbery. The track was then swapped to a Samplaire track with matching PBR ballast






    The next step was to make a picklist of the ground textures, as after placing PBR textures it can be difficult to select a texture for replacement from the route. When that problem is encountered, I grab the texture from the picklist and drag to the Bulk asset replace tool.









    There is still plenty to be done after applying the PBR textures, updating roads, fences and spline point adjustments. I've noticed that some older routes don't take kindly to TurfFX, spreading mirrored TurfFX grass in unwanted places. I'll have to see what this one does. There are a few signals which will need adjusting or replacing and level crossings could also do with some work.
    cheers

    Thanks Mick, here's another one of Andy's for you.

    EVANSVILLE WESTERN RAILWAY

    There's not a lot to do to renovate this route as it's excellently detailed - PBR textures, speedtrees, track and a few minor repairs are really all that's needed to having it running and looking great in TRS19.











    cheers

    Those shots were coming in from the Evansville portal Mick. I found the problem with the level crossings is easy if time consuming to fix. I just need to rename all of the ATLS controllers. I also found Andy's post from when he shut down Checkrail, now that he has lifted distribution restrictions I'm happy to share these publicly when they're done. They are too good to be left to rot on the Wayback Machine.

    Nice work sir! I see you've become a master of the Four Seasons. I almost expected a chorus of "Sherry" or "Big Girls Don't Cry"!
