    Sooooo many excellent screenshots. I particularly like #3914 Ken. You did tempt me a bit with the Christmas Card picture though.

    The Truth Is Out There. A return to Minehead in TRS19 SP3. Tinware ...... sorry I mean Platinum version, no subscriptions, no rent-a-sim, no beta streams. This might just work.

    Re post #3915 Stationbeem
    Hello Dave, the track is by Rumour 3, look for R3 UK Bullhead (low res non procedural) track, it's on the DLS, various types. I've made it seasonal as an experiment.

    Hello Annie, looks like some are trying to break the UK quarantine laws in Minehead. I hope you are successful with TRS19.



    Cheers, Ken

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed Ken that I'll have a decent run with TRS19 this time.
    UK Bullhead Track by Rumour 3 is what I prefer to use. I'm using it on my Minehead route in TRS19 SP3 because it's the only Uk track that looks anything like being believable as track used on a pre-grouping era railway.

    And your latest screenshot #3917 is absolutely exquisite.

    Test running in TMR17 on the Eastlingwold & Great Mulling's Grimwold branch. Looks nice, but too many bugs. Great for running my faux clockwork engines on my 'O' gauge layouts, but not so much for running a traditional 'world built' Trainz route.

    #3921. Love your screenshot pfx. The Trecoll Bay route, - that's not one I know, but it looks like I should.

    #3922. Clever, - I see what you did there Ken.

    Amazing shots, Ken. Both are wonderful.

    I like the winter version better. It really resonates.

    Regards,

    Excellent screenshots Ken! I'm glad to see you enjoying the C2x!


    Another set of screenshots from Dearnby

    [IMG][/IMG]

    There is an old railway line just south of Frowhill Station that runs into the brambles and heads north. Although many passing drivers and firemen assume the line to be long abandoned, this is not actually the case.

    The line was developed as a strategic cover route in the event of a artillery bombing from the German Air Raids during WW1 and ran all the way to Aylesbury on the GCR mainline. After the war, the War Department and Royal Engineer Corps used the line occasionally to transport trains of military equipment or personnel to and from the Casterford Air Base. However in 1936, a certain railway acquired running rights to operate trains to and from London during peak market seasons.

    It's no secret that the LNER had little to no presence in Dearnby during most of its history. Situated on the opposite side of the country, the famous northeastern railway was cut off from a central route that didn't require them to make agreements for running rights with the LMS or SR. However, upon discovering the former WD route, plans were quickly made to accommodate market and begin running goods trains to Dearnby Central. The eventual arrangement with Dearnby Central was a single goods service to Woodford Halse comprised of market goods and other commodities. The trains ran twice a month and were usually headed by a B1, O4 or V2 but on rare occasions would be headed by a Robinson B4, Holden B12 or in one extreme case, a B17 that had wandered all the way down from Dairycoates!

    Ex-GWR Driver Charlie Starkey recalled the line in his memoirs about a particular event in 1937...

    I never gave any thought to the old line down south of Frowhill. It looked so much like a dirty siding that I thought whatever purpose it had was served long ago. However that day in 1937 I was assigned to work the rail gang near the junction. Nothing special, just an old Metro Tank and some shoddy equipment. We were just about done when a booming steam whistle came out as a huge van train rocketed around the bend! It was one of those 2-6-2s but I can't remember the name "Snap- something or other."

    [IMG][/IMG]

    No.60809 was one of two V2s that visited Dearnby and the only one to call its sheds home. The market trains were loaded with old antiquated vans as to not waste sending newer equipment further south. Here The Snapper rounds the bend at Frowhill Junction with a train of old LNER wagons being led by a trio of 6T Ex-Hull and Barnsley Vans.

    Thanks. It's Trecoll Bay GWR, a short route by eso but I don't think it's available online. I'm currently tinkering with it and another of his routes and if I can contact eso, will try to upload it if it gets finished.

    Cheers,

    Default 1921 - Batts Iron Foundry

    The morning delivery for Batts Iron Foundry between Ruswarp and Whitby by an E Class 0-6-0T on the Grosmont - Whitby trip.




    There is a trailing crossover close by Gasworks siding box, which was technically a covered ground frame but no run around facilities, so a Whitby bound train can deliver and collect from the Foundry while a Grosmont bound train can deliver and collect from the gasworks sidings. The wagons need to be carefully marshalled, with foundry traffic at the head of the Whitby bound train and wagons for the gasworks at the rear of the train. A further requirement is that when coal wagons and open wagons/bolster wagons are bound for the foundry then the coal wagon(s) are to be marshalled behind the open wagons. The remainder of the trip consist is left on the running line, making it an inconvenient operation for the traffic department!

    Larpool viaduct is in the background, with the steep climb from Bog Hall Junction to Prospect Hill Junction visible beneath it.

    Thanks Innis. If you are able to upload Trecoll Bay GWR I certainly would be interested.

    #3928. That's a fine screenshot of Batts Iron Foundry Frank. I like the play of light and shadow.

    #3926. Another mysterious junction at Dearnby Tanker. Those ex-H&B vans have caught my interest, - who made those? - because I don't think I've seen them before.

    After a lot of messing around I managed to get Peter Flindley's latest updated version of GCR V15 installed into TRS19 SP3 Platinum (no Plus+, no subscriptions). He's done a good deal of work with more of the bare WIP landscape now in a completed state and it's all looking very nice.

    A collection of snaps I took in the Aylesbury session. In this session there are some issues with it being set up for trackmarks with different file names to the ones in the updated route, but it's not too difficult to edit the driver commands as is needed. Environment lighting adjusted on the fly using the Unified Surveyor tools like I usually do.

    Thanks Annie, I have been fiddling with the environment settings. The Aylesbury session on the GCR looks to be a busy one. Good shots Ken and Tanker.
