    Default Transport Sydney Trains 2020 Project (Work in Progress)

    Back at the end of 2006 I had a thread going called Cityrail 2007/2008 where I had created the entire Sydney rail network for TRS2006
    Whichever station you wanted on the Sydney rail network it was in my route.

    Then disaster struck and my backups failed at a time where I had hardware issues..... and I lost the lot.....2 years of work.

    Got back on the horse and started again rebuilding the project...... then life go in the way and I had to concentrate on work and health. That was 10 years ago.

    Today I am announcing that the project is reborn as Transport Sydney Trains 2020

    10 years ago I was using Google Earth to place the track as well as track diagrams from the ARHS NSW Bookshop. I notice that they have a newer version of the track diagrams but they are on DVD....and well my computer does not have a DVD player.

    However for the Transport Sydney Trains 2020 project I am now using using track diagrams directly from Transport NSW last updated May 2019 to create the rail network.

    I am currently developing on Trainz A New Era as Trainz 2019 currently costs around $89 Australian and I will wait a bit before buying.

    Will post screenshots of the Transport Sydney Trains 2020 project as it develops under TANA........



    Project Status:

    The Goal : 210 Railway Stations.....447 bridges covering Sydney,Blue Mountains and the Central Coast

    Starting 20/Jul/2019 Rail connection between Chatswood and Hornsby

    I have seen some outstanding screenshots of other routes created for Sydney....... have not worked out yet if someone else has created the entire Sydney Rail Network yet.

    Good luck with your Cityrail 2020 project.

    There are several people currently working on different aspects of rail, not only on Sydney, but throughout NSW. You can keep up to date on that through the "Australian Screenshots" thread.

    Back in 2010 I started a Sydney Central route which included the City Circle and Sydney Harbour. It incorporated a number of helpful assets which were produced by Steve123, Davido, Memeboy and NSWGR_46class.
    The route was driven by a dozen portals to provide plenty of activity in and out of Central Station. Here's one of several video clips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWUMHcSUnOQ&t=188s

    My route was not uploaded to the DLS because there were a few Sketchup assets with extremely high polys. However it is available, if you 'PM' me with your email address. I'm happy to send you a copy.

    Currently I'm working on a 1950s version with no Opera House, and,... which will include the Sydney trams, ferries, red rattlers, NSW 19 Class steamers for Darling Harbour goodsyard , plus a few diesels of that era.

    The route is limited from Waverton Station in the north, to Newtown in the west, and to Erskineville in the south.

    I have no intentions to extend it any further, mainly because I was only interested in capturing rail activity on video and screenshots.

    Cheers,
    Roy

    Thanks Roy.... When I saw the other Cityrail work out there I thought maybe I could do a different time frame....... but will still do the entire network as of 2019/2020

    By the way I'm Roy as well so this could get confusing.

    First thing to do is check all my content created for Trainz a decade ago........ this swimmig pool for example needs some work to fix some issues with it.

    Another piece of my content to be changed will be the travelpass sign where travellers purchased a blue metro ten for 10 trips on a bus and a red metro ten for 10 trips on a bus or train.

    The metro 10 ticket was phased out in 1992 so this is actually obsolete now. I had originally built the object to put on railway station walls....... this I will change and will be replaced with a model for an Opal Card machine.

    Hi Roy J,

    I don't have any issues with your swimming pool mate, it's an aerial texture and serves a purpose.

    Anyway, if you are interested in a copy of my Sydney Central & Sydney Harbour V4 route and sessions, just send me a PM with your email address and I'll forward the cdp files to you.

    Cheers mate,
    Roy
