5th August - Route Building Challenge Layout Release

Presenting a brand new route from myself with an interesting idea behind it. After talking with Sean, he explained an idea to me of a route building challenge, making a small route in a set amount of time. So I decided on a time of four hours, I set a stopwatch and off I went!

 

Starting from nothing I built the entire route, taking a few breaks inbetween. In the end it came down to a mad rush in the last half an hour where I just managed to get the route finished in time. The whole challenge was streamed on my Livestream account, if you wish to watch it or parts of it you can find my account here:

http://www.livestream.com/train4755railwayart

 

The route is a small railway, including both standard and narrow gauge lines. It is designed to be a little test route to allow you to try out your engines and stock on. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed making it!

 

Lewis

30th June - IOS Project Route Release

The next stage of our IOS route has been uploaded. For now it is just the route, no stock, but hopefully the stock will follow soon. This update now extends Thomas' Branchline to Toryreck station.

 

This is the first part I've worked on, and I hope you enjoy seeing some of the work I've added to Matt's base work. Not only have I added detail to the newer sections, but I've also updated some of the older parts of the route, so make sure you take a look at them.

 

For now it is just the complete IOS route that has been updated, I shall be adding the individual part later today.

 

As per usual Sean's done a brilliant job with new buildings, and Matt's done excellent work with the route. On behalf of the team we hope you enjoy this extension!
