    The last shot from overhead shows the engines working very hard on the grade. This will be fun to drive!

    thanks Heinrich ,you are ,as always, positive and encouraging and I do appreciate your comments.
    Busy self isolating and working my way around the route, the darned login for the app isn't allowing me to upload content as I have much to add to DLS before I can upload route, my pw works on MyTrainz, forum and online DLS on FCT , but isn't being accepted by the software itself, despite me making no changes whatsoever, go figure.

    in lieu of uploading, I'll see if i can modify Paul's portal textures today to give a bit of variety.
    Be well everyone !!!! So far South Australia isn't seeing huge increases of locally transmitted cases of virus, mostly people returning from cruises , many of them actually went after it was obvious that they were incubators of the disease, a lot were elderly and many are now complaining that they are being put into quarantine ...... incredible .......

    Dangavel,
    Great shots as always. You really capture the "wide open spaces" on this route. I'd hate to break down out there. It's a long walk to get rescued.

    I really like the close-up on the last shot. The track details are so neat!

    I've been busy adding telegraph lines to the 30 in section, Klinger didn't have any in the original, in these wide open arid areas, it gives something to focus on I've also added a sprinkling of rocks and boulders , just enough to make it look like the winds have scoured the soil from them, or the builders part unearthed them during construction.

    There are about 5 logging centers on the TR , might be six, i lost count, here one I added two or three years back, just revamped it.



















    Busy uploading rocks and trees and cliffs to DLS , will also be uploading content from Uintah,there's an overlap between both routes. But you won't need to download it all to get this route to work.

    Dangavel,
    Wow! Just noticed the burning brush/scrap piles. What a neat touch.

    The logging camp looks just right and the background scenery is perfect!

    I'm completing the last sections of the line ,these were not part of the original route, merged them recently ,but actually made them years ago , I've rebuilt this a lot, but still a few things to do. Firstly this branch serves a coal mine and a logging operation and i steeply graded, anything up to 6% grades.

    One of Ben neals C-18s , paired to one of Togog's ,leaves the coal mine on the way to the logging operation with some empties.


    Below, K36 488 passes underneath the other consist, taking a load of coal off to the steelworks of Irontown.




    the top line off to the logging camp




    The bottom line snakes round a low ledge on a 4% descending grade.

    Passes through some narrow cuttings and S bends.

    Dangavel,
    The shots are wonderful, as always! The sky looks particularly ominious - I really like the look. Are those from environmental settings?

    The detail on the rock facings in the deep cuttings look particularly realistic. The steep grades also keep things real and will keep engineers on their toes when driving up and down them. Did the railroads double up on the longer consists or did they just run more shorter trains?

    Great work as always.

    i haven't completed it yet, so no, there aren't any . Also the other timber ridge versions on the DLS don't have the extensions I've added, and as far as I am aware there aren't any sessions for them either. This version is a very different route. I do not really have the time to do sessions when this is completed ( which if all goes well ,will be this month ) , but as far as I am concerned anyone is free to do so.

    dangavel: It is a bit dark and doomy but that could just be because there is a storm nearby.
    jjanmarine3: I believe you downloaded the original Timber Ridge Line V4 by Klinger. Send me a pm with the missing kuids and I will try to help you find them.

    I completely forgot that i'd made this section 30 inch to join up with the original 30 inch branch on the Timber ridge, been working on this a bit more its now about 95% completed, and i ran a train using Ben Neals 30 inch 2-8-2's last night as a test run.
    Potential users of the route., Bear in mind that I can try and get most route items onto the DLS but a lot of the 30 inch gauge stock is not situated there but on external sites. I will try and get links to these but cannot promise anything as i cant remember where i got all of this from anyway.
    Perhaps if others who have got these items can post the links here it might save me some time trying to remember.
    down on the plain, this double header is taking skeleton log cars to the upper logging area.
