    Thanks Hotshot - I see it as a built in by bendorsey in TRS2019. I can see why I missed it since I began the route in TS12 and it is not a built in asset there. I have now downloaded it in to TS12 and will see if it performs as expected.
    I think that it is a great pity that Ben is no longer with us.
    He was a prodigious asset creator.




    The building in the foreground is the First Leamside station, built by the Newcastle & Darlington Junction Railway during 1844 when Leamside was on the main line from York to Newcastle, The line was a mish-mash of lines cobbled together by George Hudson "The Railway King" and actually reached Gateshead Greenesfield Station via Washington, Brockley Whins and Pelaw. The line between Washington and Brockley Whins was the pontop and South Shields Railway (the former Stanhope and Tyne route), with a south to west chord laid to join the Brandling Junction Railway's line from Sunderland to Gateshead at Brockley Whins. In 1850 the distance to Gateshead was shortened by the building of the Washington to Pelaw line. By 1857 the first station at Leamside was inadequate for the traffic and the second station, an island type, was built.

    In 1872 the status of Leamside declined with the opening of the N.E.R.'s more direct E.C.M.L. route between Tursdale Junction and Gateshead West via Durham and the Team Valley.

    Ye I did realise that when I read it in the Content Manager who was the author. I'm sure he's a happy chappy knowing we're still using and sharing his content.

    Unfortunately the Commercial did not load any coal train I sent through it in TS12 at either 1 mph, 2 mph, 3 mph or 4 mph going through it. tried HAA, HEA and HTO hoppers and checked that the coal commodity matched kuid number between the Commercial and the hoppers. Also downloaded MGSapper's Coal Loader Interactive With Effects and this also did not load any train I sent through the track. In each instance I also tried the command "drive to" as well as "drive to trackmark Ex". Still no loading.

    Ah, that might be my mistake. I only use it to UNLOAD coal at my stone mine. It may not do deliveries of coal

By the way thats nice Pway work.
    Yeah, I used BNCR signal cabin with a skin of TSP Brick Wall to make a tolerable model of Northallerton signalbox a couple of nights ago and I was going to post a shot of it so last night I opened the route and................found that the game had vaporised 2 weeks of work ! Two bloody weeks of trackwork , bridge building, you name it all completely wasted.

    That must have been agony Lewisner; i am sure many Trainzers have their dreadful tales of woe to tell. In my case I had the best of intentions of oldiefying part of the TS2012 KX - Newcastle route from Newark Northwards.
    Taking into account computer capacity I decided to delete South Humberside, lines to Lincoln, Sleaford, Spalding Skeggy, etc along with the ECML South of Newark. It took a few tedious weeks until I got down to the layout I wanted, (or so I thought), work was progressing well with regular screenies being uploaded until the computer died. New computer at around Dec 2016, saved layouts on a portable hardrive then downloaded onto new computer successfully & recommenced work, focusing on the Darlo - Newcastle section. TS2019 came along so I decided to transfer the 2012 stuff into it, again success with only a few track & spline replacements necessary. Great I thought, but, I then decided to take quick look at the Southern end of the route which I had not touched in years & yes the main line was deleted but to my horror all the Lincolnshire branch lines were still intact. I had obviously saved the wrong layout from one of my many deletion sessions years before & was now at an advanced stage with the Northern section.
    After much pondering over whether to delete Lincolnshire for a second time I decided that because this new computer may well have the capacity, to reinstate the Newark - KX section by adding the earlier 2010 KX - York layout & oldiefy the whole damn lot! Yes, it meant another marathon deleting session/s, call me mad, bad or sad - its now going to take years.

    I remember in the days of TRS06 when there was a bug that meant if you shut the game down too soon after exiting surveyor all terrain got reset to Zero height. I opened the game up and found to my horror all textures deleted and tracks suspended in mid air or buried underground. It was about 6 months work wrecked.
    Anyhow no trains in my screenie today. Mu current route takes me a few hundred yards from RAF Driffield and despite knowing nothing about airfields I couldn't resist it. The airfield still exists but mostly submerged in a jungle except for the hangars which are in industrial use. To make things harder there are no plans, few photos although there is a Microsoft Flight Simulator simulation of it. Here are the RAF Type C Hangars.

    Here you go. There was a planning application put in a few months ago to raze the derelict part and build 360 houses there. There were 3 Thor nuclear missiles based there in 1960.

    Thank you Neville! I quite like Camscott's Eastern content as well. Those weathering paintjobs are really an impressive feat to be sure! Also, is that PacificSeven' s old 4MT Tank I spy? If so I have to say it's looking very impressive for its age! You've worked wonders on it!


    Morning is dawning on 75A as the locomotives get ready for another day of hard work.

    [IMG][/IMG]


    Currently idling at the coal loader are two visiting express locomotives. Ex-LBSCR N15X No.32329 Stephenson and Ex-LSWR N15 Class No.30455 Sir Lancelot. Both are readying to make their way back home to Basingstoke and Nine Elms respectively, but the Remembrance Class will have the honor of leaving first with an early morning express to 70D. The King Arthur will be departing back to Nine Elms on a mid day express following a routine maintenance inspection at Brighton Works.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Further behind them, three engines who call Brighton their home are being topped up on water for their morning runs. E5 Class No. 32585 and E6 Class No.32417 are almost finished filling their tanks as the sun dances off their paintwork. Off to the right Ex-LBSCR C2X Class No.32551 waits for the resident K Class to finish filling its tender. The locomotive is allocated to Bricklayers Arms but has been spending quite a bit of time lingering at 75A. Looks like they might make a permanent transfer in the future!

    [IMG][/IMG]


    Finally, after being refueled and turned round, Stephenson makes its grand exit as it heads out of Brighton station. No.32585 idles in the background as it waits to depart with it's circular working from Brighton to Horsham.

    Hey Tanker. Just a little thing, when you're in a depot with third rail, the third rail should have two bits of wood either side known as kick boards. Mike 10 has third rail track like that, you'll often see then in depots like Slade Green or Lovers Walk.

    Chris :-)

    Excellent screenshots Tanker. Your Brighton project is coming together nicely.

    Post# 2832 - Thanks Chris. I will look into it. All of the track on the Brighton Route is NEX track made by Nexusdj so I will see if he has built any of that type. I will also look into Mike10's track as well and see if that would be a good match.


    Post# 2833 - Thank you Annie! I'm working on it in between work shifts and dad duties. The one I'm posting is the testbed for the DLS route so some of the assets on this route won't be in the DLS version! I'm proud to say that your Sandstone Engine Works will be making up the Carriage Works at Lancing!

    The Malton Dodger passes Driffield West junction on its way to Bridlington.
