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

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!
