Thread: French TGV line (Marseille - Lyon - Paris)

  1. #1

    Default French TGV line (Marseille - Lyon - Paris)

    Hello everyone,

    In this thread I want to show you some pictures of my current project, a recreation of the TGV line Marseille - Lyon (- Paris, possibly). Much of the section Marseille - Lyon is already finished. The route is not true to the original, it is a bit shorter for instance.

    Some pictures of the station Lyon Saint-Exupéry (Airport):











    The station was designed by Santiago Calatrava, who has designed quite a few really cool looking stations. I tried to recreate this one using various assets I had installed.

    Looking good! Will we have the first good TGV route on Trainz? Can you post more screens?

    It looks fantastic!
    Did you create the model of station Lyon Saint-Exupéry ?- It looks superb.

    Cheers,
    Roy

    Thanks for the nice comments!

    @Roy3b3: It's made up of various assets that aren't mine.

    North of Lyon:











    Some areas are still a bit empty, I will add more details there later, such as the fringes.

    Further south the terrain gets more hilly

    It's great to see another European high speed line being made for Trainz besides anathoth71's "London to Lille" and the fictional German "Schwaningerland" (still in beta) routes! I however used to be a big TGV fan about 15 years ago, but I then got deeper into the German ICE stuff, but I still find more high speed lines for Trainz new and exciting nonetheless!

    The route is going to be much longer than the Schwäninger Land HSL. Performance should also be better as there are no speed trees. Performance was really an issue for me when I tried that route. I need to have a look at he London to Lille route.

    My computer isn't powerful enough to handle high graphics and that's one reason why I dislike speed trees. I do however like the first two screenshots from your last post which somehow reminds me of the Frankfurt-Cologne high speed railway which only has an MSTS adaptation so far.

    Thanks guys!!

    @er9m: Yes it will be released. I finished about 80% of the section Lyon - Marseille. I am thinking about releasing that section early as I haven't started work on the section to Paris yet. You can tell me your opinion about that if you like.

    JonathanEckloff, great!!! Ok, in my opinion, i would like to see route before line to Paris. It's superb, that you're planning that branch, but it will take a long to built it, and i can't wait to drive this route
