    Who knows what new forms of stupidity lurk in AI drivers' brains. Return loops and ovals test my patience too when an AI driver decides that backing up is the answer rather than proceeding in a forward direction. As for backing over direction markers that should be something that just shouldn't happen and has to be some kind of bug in the software.

I had another situation where a train stopped between signals and wouldn't go any further, fixed by taking out a signal. Now finding despite putting a sequence of markers around the reverse loop, train will not go all the way round and instead reverses back out against the direction markers and continues to propel on the rest of the route.

    I thought it was only MSTS which had problems with looped track and reversing loops, appears it confuses the hell out of Trainz, too!
    Since TS2019 is N3V's current wonderchild and is supported by N3V (unlike earlier versions) you could submit a bug report about this. Whether anything might be done about it is another matter entirely though.

    My apologies for the late reply I missed seeing your post. The locomotives I used are by Paulz Trainz and are from his Uk 3ft gauge range. My ones are very much modded and fettled though to run well on the advanced steam controls. The wagons and coaches are by Steve Flanders and are from his Irish 3ft gauge range of models.

    Hello Franck. I'm pleased you like my little garden railway. If you want to mod it in anyway go ahead and have fun.

    Hi back in March 2020 I thought I would make a real garden railway but I hit two problems. One was the wife "your not doing that to our garden" and the other was the large slope. Now I could probably have got around either or one of the problems but not both so it never happened. Fast forward to Jan 2020 and lockdown 3 (in the UK) and I find your thread. Brilliant idea, I've bought Trainz literally to build a virtual model railyway. However I'm literally a real newbie to Trainz having only purchased it a couple of weeks ago and the download station seems a nightmare to find what I want.

    How do I find your model?

    Thanks for that I've given them a download and will check them out later.

    Finding stuff doesn't seem easy with Trainz.

    I've got another version of Euromodeler Gartenbahn almost done. I'm planning on releasing it on my birthday, the 16th.

    Ain't that the truth. Often the best way to find things is to see what's been posted here in the "freeware announcements" section of the forums, rather than trawling the hundreds of thousands of assets available on the DLS.

    Hi,
    If you use the content manager, try the following:-

    At the top there's a menu box.
    Select "custom"
    NowA use the little right pointing arrow, and create a new filter row.
    Now use the "+" to create another...
    I use a custom filter saved as "routes and sessions"; this uses the filters like this...
    1) on DLS =true
    2) category = "routes"
    3) OR
    4) category = "sessions"

    That will filter out everything except routes & sessions.
    You may want to add a column (right click on the right of the last occupied column) and add version number. 4.5 and higher were built/saved from TS19, ignore any route less than 3 - it may require lots of work to import and work correctly.

    The FCT needs to be activated before it will let you have unrestricted access (speed & quantity)... You'll need to enter "my account", then find the FCT page and activate one ticket. You can buy more than one, unused ones will sit there until you activate one (remember that they will expire).

    Enjoy,

    Colin

    Default Freeman Locomotive Works Present: Garden Railway USA

    Freeman Locomotive Works presents a sneak peak at another version of Euromodeller's Gartenbahn: Garden Railway USA. I changed the route from being located in Germany to being located in America. This will be released tomorrow, which is also my birthday. I have also changed the gauges to 30-inch (non-procedural track), 36-inch (procedural track), and standard gauge (procedural track).

    Default More Info

    The 30-inch gauge loop is named after the fictional Big Stone Gap & Southern Railroad (BSG&SRR), a predecessor of the Norfolk and Western Railroad which ran from Big Stone Gap, Virginia, to Bristol, Virginia/Tennessee. The line also features a passing siding named The Trail of The Lonesome Pine Siding, named after the novel The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, whose author, John Fox, Jr, and some distant relatives of mine, lived in Big Stone Gap, Virginia. My mom was also born in Big Stone Gap, Virginia. Big Stone Gap, Virginia is also home to an annual outdoor stage play based on this novel, which is considered the longest running outdoor drama in the United States. Tennessee State Route 70, which runs thru Rogersville, Tennessee, which is where my Grandmother on my Mom's side, my aunt, and one of my cousins and his family all live, is named Trail of the Lonesome Pine Road, which comes from when it was an auto trail of the same name that ran between Detroit and Florida in the early part of the 20th Century.
    The 36-inch gauge line is named after the fictional Big Valley & Western (BV&W), a predecessor of the Denver and Rio Grande Western's narrow-gauge empire, which ran from the town of Big Valley, Colorado, to Alamosa, Colorado. The name 'Big Valley' is a homage to two things: The ABC Western TV series The Big Valley, which ran from 1965-1969, and the Alaskan fishing vessel Big Valley which today, January 15th, 2021, marks the 16th anniversary of its sinking. It's sinking was covered on the first season of Discovery Channel's TV series Deadliest Catch. Out of six people on board, only one person survived the sinking of FV Big Valley.
    The standard gauge line, the Boulder & Garden Village (B&GV), is a fictional predecessor of Union Pacific's Denver to Wyoming mainline.

    Thanks for the background Jordon412! It will be interesting trying it out with those thoughts in the background!

    Nice scenario but the central building is too big!
