    Thanks for the kind comments rjhowie - I'm starting to know how you must feel. Did you ever wonder if you'd bitten off more than you could chew? Never mind, I'll finish at least a useable section...

    Anyway, just one more pic for now...

    It is just me in here isn't it?

    Ah well, I can see some people are having a look, so I'll keep posting...


    Looking towards Northgate.

    Northgate stop.

    In the old town approaching the Cathedral.

    A few more pics from the route...


    The view from the Cathedral


    Backstreets of the Old Town


    More from the Old Town


    Looking towards the Cathedral


    The terraces of Coromandel Heath


    Industrial area and bridge over the outer ring road near Hallworth.

    That's all for now...

    OK - time for some more pictures. I've been adding scenery to one of the areas of the route I hadn't touched much before, so I've now almost got the main route from the edge into the centre complete...

    These pictures represent a circular journey into the inner suburbs and back by another route:


    Starting out at Flinders Square in the heart of Bridgehampton.


    The grand approach to the main line station (much still to be done in this area).


    Shakespeare Street stop in the inner suburbs. The tramway shares it's alignment here with a heavy rail branchline that has been singled to accomodate it (note to self - more foliage required).


    Terrace backs (nice one Chris7464) line the route...


    Coromandel Heath main line station. The tramway low level station is hidden behind the flyovers. Three tram routes and the branchline serve this cosmopolitain inner suburb.


    A view from the other side of the station. The other route into town passes the station's front door.


    Stone terraces line St James' Road back down the hill into town.


    Further down the road...


    St. James' Road stop for the Hospital.


    Back in the Old Town at Cathedral stop.

    Still lots to do - I've had to be pretty selective about where I take my shots, but I'm progressing quite well...

    Thanks guys! I appreciate the encouragement...

    Klinger - Yes I remember when the only trams I could find for Trainz were the MBTA trolleys. Now that's still about all there is for the USA, and there's loads from mainland Europe, plus antique trams from the UK and Australia...

    And here's one shot I had left over...


    Sturt Street Stop from the bridge over the river.

    Default No it's not finished yet!

    I usually try to make my shots look as complete as possible (no grey squares, mysterious spaces, missing overhead etc), so it probably makes my routes look almost finished when actually it's all very selective photography...

    Anyway, in a break from my usual practice, here are some of the bits I have yet to finish before I release the first section...


    Elevated section heading from the Old Town towards the docks.


    Northbound across the other river, and up the hill (and then underground).


    View back towards the town.


    The bridge next to Sturt Street Stop (looking the other way to all of the previous pictures - now you know why...)


    Main line station and approach. The tunnel leads to the low-level station.


    Southern station approaches and carriage sheds.


    Northern Station approaches (still don't know quite what I'm doing here)


    Industrial area to the west of the main line station.

    So, as you can see, there's still a lot to be done...

    Paul, This keeps getting better and better all the time. I think you are making a very interesting route that just makes me want it when its finished even more. You definitely have some talent for route building thats for sure.

    Post Overhead Details

    I was just wondering what overhead poles you are using, are they available for download or did you design them for this layout.

    Thanks
