    Default NZ pics

    Hi All,
    I have just asked permission to upload these, so might be on the DLS next week. NZR Northern coaches and Power car in 42" gauge.

    If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
    Start with a small country.

    Hi Bill,

    Your doing the North Island spiral?

    Those screen shots look interesting.

    Hi Noel,

    Yes I am doing the spiral. I have the rails laid from Raurimu to Ohakune and will probably extend northwards to Taumaranui but still have to do lots of contouring and texturing. The spiral itself is about 90% done but with other activities going on atm it may be some time before it is ready to upload so don't hold your breath.

    Cheers,

    Hi Rugrat,

    Looks good. Now we have a range of NZR rollingstock and locos, what say we start a thread for NZ screenshots.

    Fantastic screens Rugrat

    Could someone maybe post the external links to the NZ rolling stock here? I might have a go at a kiwi route in the near future. Possibly something local like Dunedin - Port Chalmers or maybe a bit more extensive like the Taieri Gorge line to Middlemarch if I can get my hands on a good DEM map.
    I may have a good source of info soon as I'm doing a bit of work for Dunedin station for the city council and hopefully they might help out with track and gradient diagrams.
    If anyone has any info on the area I would really appreciate a look if it could help with construction.

    And you should also find some DJ's (they would fit in perfectly with the area your talking about), an Xp goods wagon, some URL log cars, LPA wagons and a J class sheep wagon on the DLS.

    there is also some DCs on the DLS however dule to the bogey file being updated these locomotives are faulty (non recoverable) so i wouldn't bother downloading them...
