    Thanks Jamie, that's quite humbling....


    Up Patchewollock Pass leaving Hopetoun. Yup, it should be a DERM, but my route my roulz

    Of more concern is the stock race in the background. Hopetoun must have had one, but every single photo I have is taken facing north from the station platform or north from the top of the silo, and there isn't a stock ramp to be seen so logic suggests it must have been at the south end of the station so that's where I've put it. I have taken the track though a junction off No3 Road, but it is at least as likely that it was fed through a slip off the No2 Road, but it's early days and it's a two minute fix if necessary if/when better info comes to light. Also the ramp is a very nice model, but of a NSW prototype. I know there's a VR ramp of the classic short platform with ground level yards type, I've seen it in screenshots, but blowed if I can find it so this was pressed into service temporarily.

    Spline grass still? Yup. TurfFX? I try, but there are so many sttings to tweak and it's still too thick, or too thin, never just right, and there's a fair concentration of tracks and roads and I just can't keep the stuff where I want it, so good ol' splines are back in service.

    And lastly the somewhat unbalanced composition of the shot is because everything to the right of camera is just bare grid...

    So, other than just about everything being in one way or another not quite right, imho not too shabby...

    Thanks Tom, ILUKA is new(ish) definitely post-VR and loads sand, there is a huge wind-break alongside the track to stop the stuff blowing away!

    Your link tho is a handy resource and shows a kicback siding off the end of No3 road exactly as I have it, so that's one box ticked.

    Thanks

    Hi everyone

    I'd like to announce that after many years of work, the NSW South Coast line map is now available to download on the DLS. Grazlash and I are thrilled to share our map with you all and look forward to hearing what you think of it. Sessions are currently waiting for processing and should be on the DLS tomorrow or the day after.

    Grazlash, this is great news. Do you have any versions of the route that is compatible with T:ANE?

    It's TRS19 SP3 and upwards, whenever that happens. All the more reason to upgrade. The scenery was started in TANE but very quickly upgraded to TRS19, where building became easier and faster.

    Thanks Zec- nice shot!!

    Meanwhile in North-Western Victoria, a more minamalistic approach to the provision of a goods service: a Y, a single wagon (doubtless superphosphate), and the obligatory Z constitute the Down Patchewollock.


    The half buried track is a feature of the line - in even the shallowest cuttings 'drifting up' was a constant problem as the incessant wind dropped it's load of sand. Earlier in the line's history the problem was constant, partly due to completely inappropriate agricultural practices imported from wetter, greener lands - specifically harrowing and fallowing, the twin practices leading to exactly the same problems as created the American 'dust bowl' of the early twentieth century, but also as a result of the railway's own early attempts at mitigation which completely misunderstood the problem: The wind dropped the sand in cuttings because the air pressure lowered as the 'void' was crossed, and attempts to sort the issue by building miles of 'sand fence' simply served to lower the air pressure in the lee of the fence even more, resulting in even more sand dropping out of the wind exactly where it wasn't wanted. Later attempts to solve the problem by growing trees and shrubs along the railway reserve worked better, but the best result of all was as the 'sand fences' fell into disrepair, the resulting 'lattice' structure actually worked really well, so the dilapidated fences remained in place long after they might otherwise have been removed....

    Lecture over!

    Later the same day, the Up Patche was caught crossing the Hopetoun-Patche Road just north of the previous location...
