    Oh! I'm an absolute fan of the Elder Scrolls series! I played the hell out of Oblivion ( pun entirety intended) and have played through Skyrim more times than I can remember since it's release in 2011. Last I checked my Imperial Battlemage was looking for a massive soul gem to finally rid Cyrodill of the King of Worms.

    I'm currently waiting for the release of EDS VI Valenwood as it's supposed to come out this year. I can't wait to see what they come up with for the Province of the Bosmer!

    Strange as it might seem Tanker I own a copy of Skyrim, but have never played it. I have watched my daughter play through Skyrim more than a few times though. Developing narcolepsy put paid to me learning to play Skyrim. My long time custom made character in Oblivion has been specially tailored to suit my slowed down brain which is my biggest barrier to playing most modern games. Like you I have 'played the hell' out of Oblivion, but despite the streets of of some of the towns in Cyrodiil being more familiar to me than the town where I live I never get tired of playing Oblivion. I used to make texture mods for Oblivion before I took up with Trainz so my reskinning skills owe a lot to Elder Scrolls Oblivion.

    Edit: I'm sure my daughter will be interested in getting a copy of EDS VI Valenwood when it comes out.

    I understand. The great thing about Skyrim is that the user interface is a LOT easier to use than Oblivions is. They simplified the leveling and crafting systems and made it much easier to save progress than before. The game engine was fine tuned to make it easier for players to understand and work with. Having played both games I highly recommend you check it out if you ever find the time. You'll be surprised how good the game is!

    I wish I had time to play like I did before but between work and family life it seems that Trainz is the only hobby I can dedicate myself towards. I don't mind though as there's plenty to work on to keep myself busy!


    A new project I am working on. This is the first of its kind from me. After seeing the awesome screenshots Borderreiver does of the NER, I decided to make a TMR Route featuring the area of North Blythe. I haven't gotten very far with it yet but thanks to Euromodeller's fantastic barebones TMR routes I at least have a place to start!

    Default Shildon Yard 1950

    Shildon Yard was a large coal handling facility in NE England astride the original 1825 Stockton & Darlington line.




    A train of empty steel coal hoppers arrives at the eastern end of the yard, with the down loops and spurs on the south side of the line.

    Loaded coal wagons arrived from the west, with collieries in the area operating through to the late 1950s/early 1960s. By 1950 there were somewhat fewer collieries operating than there were at the peak of traffic in 1913.
    Once marshalled in to long trainloads most would depart from the eastern end of the yard and travel via the formerly DC Overhead electrified line via Redmarshall to Newport yard by the River Tees.

    Amazing shot and history, borderreiver, sad to think that all that industry is now long gone.

    Default 1946 - Shunting Coal at Blackhill

    Hello Tanker and Evilcrow, thanks for your kind words and great screenshots.
    Circa 1946, a J72 0-6-0T is shunting coal hoppers at Blackhill.




    The hoppers are heavily weathered. Examples are 20 Ton diagram 100 steel hoppers, a 15 Ton diagram P6 wooden hopper and a 20 Ton diagram P7 wooden hopper. The diagram 100s have detailed differences since one was built by Metro-Cammell while the other was built by Hurst-Nielson.

    Default 1949 - Q5 0-8-0 Hauling Coal at Shildon

    Former LNER Q5 Class 0-8-0 No. E3260 of Middlesborough shed is hauling a loaded coal train out of Shildon Yard in County Durham one morning during 1949. She will reach Newport Yard on the River Tees via the formerly DC overhead electrified Simpasture branch.




    E3260 was a Worsdell veteran, built as T1 Class 0-8-0 No. 130 in March 1902. The T1 designation meant that she was turned out with slide valves rather than piston valves. The class has been under threat since December 1946. when the first was withdrawn. Austerity 2-8-0s were arriving in large numbers, rendering the Q5s redundant. E3260 would be condemned in October 1950.
