    Some payware models available on Paulz Trainz site.

    Thank you Annie for your support and your screenshots! The GWR Atlantics look marvelous and I may consider getting one myself!
    I'm keen on Atlantics Tanker. I have both the GWR French De Glehn Atlantics and the GWR 'Scott' Atlantics that were later rebuilt as 4-6-0s. The time of the GWR Atlantics was only brief and even after being rebuilt with GWR boilers the De Glehn Atlantics didn't last long.

    Your IOW screenshots look interesting, but I see the problem of TS2019's lighting strikes again. I haven't run TANE for a while and it was nice to be able to run trains without having to mess about with fighting TS2019's stupid lighting controls.

    I do like a de Glehn Atlantic. One of the few GWR locos I'd ever be tempted to do my own model of...

    Actually Rob, I meant for Trainz: ANE and up.

    It's one of my favourite locomotives Ed. The Paulz Trainz model is very old now, but not so bad for its age all things considered.

    That’s the same reason I was thinking. Some of those engines do need to have a high quality upgrade. Most times I would like to see an upgraded GWR Hall and some BR Standard classes to be featured in the DLS.

    Unfortunately Andrew sometimes the only way to obtain better steam locomotives for Trainz is to commision them yourself. It was the only way I could get a Bristol & Exeter Railway Broad Gauge locomotive I needed since quietly hoping someone would make one was never going to work.

    Default A Britannia and Scottish Fish

    I have decided to take a path I do not often tread and post a screenshot of a BR Standard Class loco at work.




    It is a paulhobbs payware item (built in I think) and a venerable 2.9 build. 70019 LIGHTNING finds herself in Scotland approaching Broughty Ferry with the Up 12:15 pm Fish from Aberdeen bound for London Kings Cross. Probably late 1961 or early 1962, since between September 1961 and June 1962 LIGHTNING was allocated to Carlisle Kingmoor shed. It appears that a working or perhaps two has taken her north to Aberdeen and Ferryhill shed has commandeered her to take the up fish, perhaps as far as Dundee but potentially even Edinburgh, where 7F power in the form of an A1 or A2 Pacific can be substituted for the brit. Haymarket will then be left with the job of getting her back to Kingmoor, unless they "slopey shoulder" it off on to Heaton or Gateshead shed at Newcastle Central. It is a shorter run across to Kingmoor from there but a Brit on the Newcastle to Carlisle will have spotters going mad to get her in their Ian Allen book. A Britannia north of York is rare enough but a sighting at Newcastle is the stuff of trainspotting legend, even in 1961.

    Thanks for the support Annie! The IOW rout is something I discovered while I was browsing the DLS today. As far as I know the route should be compatible with TANE and TS19 since it was built for TS12.
    But I agree with you - that's why my Southern Region project is being built in TANE!

    The lack of a BR E1 haunts me though... Might have to add that to the list in the near future.

    I do like a de Glehn Atlantic. One of the few GWR locos I'd ever be tempted to do my own model of...
    Now that is something I'm sure we'd all love to see!

    While looking for the IOW layout in Tanker's screenshots I found an updated version of the TS2004 K&ESR route by AngelaH. It's by mrfibble for TS2012 and it was uploaded in April this year and I'm not sure how I managed to miss seeing it. I've loaded the route into TANE SP3 rather than TS2012 because I want to start making a transition away from TS2012.
    Mrfibble has done a great job of fixing the various faults with the original layout and he's used a wide variety of billboard trees to great effect. In terms of a variety of types and good appearance it's very much proof that in the right situations billboard trees are much better and look better than speed trees.
    I've got my own part built update version of the K&ESR in TS2019, but I've made up my mind to not complete it. TANE SP3 is far more user friendly than TS2019 so I won't try to build anymore routes using it. TS2019 is just a fight all the way when it comes to using surveyor. If it wasn't for the fact that I have 19th century routes in TS2019 that I've put a lot of work into as well as 19th century rolling stock I (foolishly) commissioned for TS2019 I'd be packing it up and sending it off to the archive hard drive of shame. When TS2019 first came out I really liked it, then N3V started messing with it and that was when I started to lose interest.

    I did eventually download the IOW route into TANE and it was awfully nice to start up a route for the first time and not have it looking like it's five minutes before the sun went supernova and burned the earth to a crisp.
