    When you change your forests from 2d spline to 3d trees the difference is pretty good. Now I just need to do the other 5000 trees



    to something more like this...

    A word of advice about those trees Jimmy. Bulk Asset Replace Tool is your friend. It can replace almost any asset with another of your choice in mass quantities. In TRS19 it can replace building assets now too!

    It helped me cover a lot of ground on my Pre-Grouping Version of the Cornwall Region. Chrisaw gave me a hint of helpful advice about the signal columns for this period and using this tool I was able to update the signals to his LSWR format ones. So far I have...

    And Combination Signals taken care of!

    The bracket signals are a bit trickier. They are currently in GWR Semaphore style and currently the LSWR Signals Chrisaw has don't have equivalents to them. I am using SR era brackets for now and they work pretty good!

    A few more screenshots I took..

    Ye object for object or spline for spline, it doesn't swap spline to object. So what I do is place the trees where the 2d ones were then delete the spline from under it and that's T:ANE btw lol.

    Ah! I understand now! I'm modeling the route from Brighton in TANE so I understand the limitations. I still think TANE is better for route building in my opinion but I am starting to get a handle on TRS19 as well.

    Pretty tired from work so the forests can wait, stuck the stock in AI and sat back to see if it'd all work. Success!



    Pulling into Dacre, can hear something thundering towards me...



    Just caught it =D

    I often find that taking a seat in a carriage and taking a ride can be very useful since it gives a completely different view of the railway I've built. Any mistakes I've made that I hadn't noticed before become immediately obvious when looking out a carriage window.

    #2882. Good looking screenshots Tanker. You do know that those yellow distant signals should be red in the pre-grouping era. Chris has told me that he's going to do something about making red distant signals when he gets a spare moment.

    One of my little projects before I packed in Trainz about 7 years ago was to build a model of the Queen Alexandra Bridge in Sunderland. The real one was completed in 1909 at a cost equivalent to £54 million in todays money but it carried coal trains for just 12 years before the rail deck was abandoned.

    Quite the bridge. Was it abandoned because of a reduction in traffic?

    Kotanga, yes I agree aswell. Different perspectives are always handy

    Ah! The BR Brick Viaduct! I had that on the Brighton Line when I first downloaded it. It looked a bit shabby on my route but you've made it look wonderful here lewisner! Lucky for me that Graham (Euromodeller) was so willing to reskin the viaduct to bring it similar to the one out of London Road Station! I really should ask him to give the Ouse Viaduct once I get as far as Balcombe...

    Getting my feet wet with Brighton in TRS19. Adding Edh6's locos in makes the yard look a lot busier!! Looking forward to adding the M7 to the lineup when its released to the DLS!!

    And finally some future progress.. The line through Patcham Tunnel has been cut down to one track.. This is because the extension to London Victoria has begun!! The line's first task is to extend as far as Haywards Heath. The line will eventually meet up with extensions to Guildford, Tonbridge, and of course the great Nine Elms!

    The class 47 that broke down at Worthing some time ago has been relegated to the task of handling the Permanent Way train as it heads up the line. Meanwhile, a Redhill-based N Class brings a stopping passenger train in from Three Bridges station.

    Also, thanks for the encouragement Annie! I noticed you uploaded an LSWR themed Model Rail layout to your many achievements on the DLS! I look forward to downloading it and checking it out!

    I will double check my signals for the Cornwall Route! I'm quite inexperienced when it comes to Pre-Grouping fixtures so I appreciate any corrections or critiques you have for me!

    Well it was only for freight and the only thing it offered was a direct line from the coalfields in the Consett area to Sunderland South Dock and I understand that the traffic from those coalfields did decline so much that it made it uneconomical to maintain a massive structure to the standard for heavy trains. In a superb bit of irony the LNER removed the approach spans in 1937 except for two girders which carried a sea water pipe, just two years before war broke and of course the bridge could have provided a valuable alternative route into Sunderland in the event of bomb damage to other lines. @Tanker46 the approach viaducts were actually built from 60,000 tons of red sandstone.

    Yes Seaton in Devon. Made as close as I could get it to representing the 1889 station within the limits of what was available on the DLS. I used the trackplan shown on the 1889 OS map, but had to compress it a bit to fit in with the TMR format since it's a digital model railway layout rather than being set into the landscape. The station layout is quite simple, but still a lot of fun to operate.

    I'm a bit of a semaphore signal enthusiast and Chris knows that I've reskinned all of his distants on my layouts to being red, but of course I can't upload them since I don't have his permission. Signals are difficult in Trainz because there are big gaps in what is available for the pre-grouping era and some models are old now and don't work all that well with later ones with better scripting.
    If you need any advice please feel free to ask.

    60534 Irish Elegance passes an NCB train at Penshaw North on the Leamside Line. There's just a vast open expanse of weeds here now.

    Later the NCB train passes Burnmoor crossing heading for Fencehouses.

    Lovely to see all this Sunderland work. Thank you Lewisner. It brings back a lot of memories of my youth, especially the Queen Alexandra Bridge, which I crossed on a regular basis.
    Best wishes

    Thanks for your kind comments Ian ! Once I have my Malton & Driffield route complete I have a fiendish plan to combine my Sunderland - Leamside route with the ECML route but I think it will involve much drinking of wine and swearing.

    Here's an A8 working a northbound train through North Grimston station.
