    Re posts by KotangaGirl, Tanker46, tailight98, euromodeller and borderreiver, thanks for the shots and the interesting info. The IOW railway and the island is a must to visit, once this dreadful virus is gone.

    I thought you would like it, I was amazed at how much effort they have put into that section.
    I think that Tanker will like it too.

    I really do! Thank you Graham! My favorite part of the website is the Locomotive profiles for the IOW's engines. Once the virus lifts I plan on taking a family trip there!

    I hope they can restore Yarmouth to steam soon. That little E1 is looking more and more like an interesting Trainz project by the day.

    If you go to the Isle of Wight then you should cross from the mainland on one of these, they stop next to the railway station...

    Those look a bit too Star Wars for an old Luddite like me Graham.

    #3334. Beautiful atmospheric screenshots evilcrow.

    More IOW. The new Terriers for TANE are lovely to drive.

    Thanks for all the IOW shots really love the islands railways, never finished my NG version, at NG speeds of 25 MPH on mainline and 15MPH through stations the time matched the original timetable using the DEM I downloaded.

    I'm surprised to see the IOW hovercraft is still in service. I made a return trip from IOW to Southsea on the hovercraft way back in 1977 during the Queen's Silver Jubilee weekend celebrations. I was in the RN at the time and off duty so spent a few days on the IOW with a few mates - what a great weekend that was, the IOW was seething with tourists from all over the world, lots of nice young ladies!

    I believe its one of only two commercial passenger hovercraft routes left in the world the other is in South East Asia somewhere. It's something I'd really like to do, I've been to the Isle of Wight many times, but always by boat...

    Those de Glehn screenshots inspired me to go and find out more about them. I discovered a French train forum which had a whole thread on Atlantic type locos from all over the world, including loads of drawings. I was able to gather enough information for models of several of my favourite Atlantic types plus a few new ones I hadn't known of before.

    Oh be still my racing heart. As a long time enthusiast for Atlantics I can hardly wait to see what you might build Ed.

    Likewise. I know the GWR isn't your favorite road but if you choose to model the GWR Atlantics I am sure EVERYONE will be amazed by them.

    #3343 Nice looking shed screenshots Tanker. In fact all of them are good. I use the Riddles RODs for hauling coal and minerals on Middle Vales, - they are darn good engines.

    Not well at the moment so I'm not doing much, but I did play trains for a while on Lickey to cheer myself up.

    Thanks Annie! I am sorry to hear you aren't feeling well and I hope you are feeling better soon!

    I also quite like the Riddles WD Austerities. The 2-8-0s are excellent locomotives and they fit in well on Dearnby since there are two air bases on the route that they can service. Since one is a military base its pretty easy to have the Austerities running around anytime after 1940!

    I am really a huge fan of Knucklesnvector's WD 2-10-0 - such a beautiful engine! Although these giants worked exclusively in Scotland, I was able to dust off an old T12-TANE Era layout of Haymarket in the 1960s near the end of steam. Those locomotives sure don't look it though!

    I still need to adjust the light settings on this one, but by god that bridge is amazing!
