I've started a new route, this time a simulation of the Dublin to Cork line, which I intend to do as far as Portarlington.
I may be some time!! Very Happy

Better do the canopies, just in case it rains!

Fiddly bits added, platform signs and the machines the cleaners use to prepare the trains for turnaround (three different sorts, just to be difficult).

That roof looks very nice!

There isn't many routes with concrete based track, lovely!

The concrete slab track is only used within the platform confines, it's a feature at Heuston.
Sean Heuston, who the station was named after, was one of the Irish rebels who took part in the 1916 uprising. Previously it was known as Kingsbridge station.
Several stations around Ireland are named after these Republican heroes:
Dublin Connolly (formerly Amiens Street)
Dublin Heuston (formerly Kingsbridge)
Dublin Pearse (formerly Westland Row)
Dún Laoghaire Mallin
Bray Daly
Cork Kent (formerly Glanmire Road)
Kilkenny MacDonagh
Limerick Colbert
Tralee Casement
Dundalk Clarke
Drogheda MacBride
Sligo Mac Diarmada
Galway Ceannt
Waterford Plunkett
Wexford O'Hanrahan
Who knows, UK stations may yet be called Thatcher, Gove, Farage and Johnson!! Razz

I gotta slow down, Ive been overdoing it!! This is what you get when a retired graphic designer does trainsims Smile I'm lightning on the Photoshop stuff.
I'm up to the 3/4 mile post - no sigs or planting yet, and another 44 miles still to do!

Some stations are easier to make than others, this one is filling the swearbox rapidly . . . .


Parkwest & Cherry Orchard. The platforms were a doddle (didn't use the plat gen utility) but I've been hours and hours on the building and lots more to do yet. Adamstown, two stations on, will be even more difficult.

The less attractive end of the station, facing Dublin.



The stairways and the bits you see "up the hole" were tricky enough. As was the 50° skewed overbridge at the entrance, which forms an integral part of the station.

Fair play for constructing that station building, I would have given up a long time ago!

Never knew you had a Facebook page!

If it was all too easy, where would the fun be?? Wink
The Celtictrainsim Facebook page has been in existence since 2012. I do far more traffic on FB than on any of the trainsim user forums and use it to post latest WIP progress and screenies. I've always tried to reach out to a broader public, which isn't going to happen happen if I confine exposure only to "specialist" forums. Thanks to Facebook and YouTube Celtictrainsim is the easiest found Open BVE item on any search engine.

Working on the station at Adamstown at present. Got over six miles done now, apart from signalling and trackside signs. This route has no level crossings but a lot of bridges.

Bridges are a pain in the lower back gray, I feel for you. I really do.
However, you have done a great job so far! albino
