    Great work everyone.
    Roy, that route is coming up a treat. With regard to the cliff splines, check out Dangavel's DG series of cliffs on the DLS. More than we'll ever need!
    cheers

    Thanks Graeme, I'll check them out/

    Cheers mate,
    Roy

    PS: Well I downloaded about 30 of Dangavel's cliff splines as well as a dozen textures he's created and boy, how do you pick from them. I'd have a field day if I was working on a country route. I can see some of these being laid on the South Coast Line.

    Here is just one of his textures, so sharp you can literally feel yourself strolling (or climbing) through it.

    Great shots Zec and Tim.


    I have uploaded the NSWGR Fairmont ST2 trikes to the DLS. They should be available within 24hrs.

    Initially imported from the US, the Fairmont ST2 was first deployed in NSW in 1949, and was a fairly common sight up until the mid/late sixties. Interestingly, the 2 speed gearbox did not require a reverse gear. To move in the opposite direction the motor could be stopped, and then restarted spinning in the reverse direction (apparently a skilled operator could use the last kickback movement of the motor to do this on the move!) The put-put sound of the unmuffled 2 stoke 10hp engine could be heard coming from a couple of miles of. When I first played with Dave Snow's model (on which the NSWGR version is based), and heard that put-put sound, the memories came flooding back!

    There are two versions of the NSWGR Fairmont uploaded. The second has a roof, although to be frank, I have not been able to find a photo to confirm the existence of roofed version of NSWGR ST2. However I did find photo of a roofed Fairmont M19, taken at Koorawtha. I also found a photo of a Volkswagen trike with a very similiar roof to that on the uploaded NSWGR Fairmont ST2 (The Volkswagen trike operated around the same time). Customisations of trikes were apparently quite common, and I have taken modellers license liberties in also reskinning the roofed ST2. If anyone can confirm the existence of such a configuration, chime in below. If its a load of rubbish feel free to send me a personal message :-).

    I'm trying out some of Dangavel's textures (thanks Graeme for pointing them out) in some areas of my route. In the right place, they look almost real.


    Just noticed, the bridge track doesn't line up with what I'm using. Better fix that. Screenshots tell the story.
    And yes, Waverton is getting a little more treatment. Waverton platform buildings were somewhat different to other stations; and each platform was different.

    First stage on the buildings - In TANE they've come out much too light and bright so will have to tone down some of the textures.
    Cheers,
    Roy

    Nice progress there Watsup976. If your trackwork is close to perfect, that's half the battle. Then you can settle-in and take your time detailing your layout.

    Well done mate.
    Cheers,
    Roy.

    I've located another bridge with a good sized arch; and it also allows me to use my choice of track, so there are no obvious differences in track width now.


    I've also toned down the textures of the platform buildings to bring them into uniformity.



    Moving on to the next section of my route. Hopefully, it'll also be much tidier when it's finished.

    Cheers,
    Roy

    Hey Folks

    Been a while since I posted here.



    DQs given to me by a very generous content creator meandering their way through an area I've been tinkering with on my freelance Tassie-themed route.
