After almost two years of not using OpenBVE due to various reasons, I've found a couple of hours recently to work on a route I started in 2016 in the run up to the birth of my son.

It was going to be based on the North Wales Coast Line but I've changed a few signs and passing trains and it now has more of a Northern feel to it, I'm thinking of adding a couple of stations with grand train sheds like those as Beverley, Filey and Pickering.

It's very much a WIP and I can't promise it'll ever see get as far as being released but I thought I'd tease you all with a couple of screenshots.

The first station is a 4 track through station based on Lincoln Central.

It looks like I may now find a use for this train shed I build about 4 years ago!

Based on one of my most favourite station in the UK that train shed is, Filey, East Yorkshire, it retains such an old world feel to it with a service frequency to match!

Lots more "character" than the fabricated steel and glass stuff they make today.
Interesting set up with the footbridge.

Indeed, the whole Hull - Scarborough line has character, it's a route that the modern railway has forgotten about, stunning old train sheds, semaphore signals, 1tp2h frequency on parts of the route... 

The footbridge, if Wiki is correct, was imported from a different station but was too wide for the station so had to be routed through the train shed wall!

Interestingly, Pickering station on the North York Moors railway has recently had it's overall roof rebuilt in the original G. T. Andrews style.

I don't really have much of a plan for it, at the moment it's at about 8km long.

I'm thinking about adding another station, getting the errors down from 500+ and putting a release out, problem is, the more I look at the route, the more problems I spot that need correcting!

This is what happens when you start something and then forget about it for two years...

You'll be pleased to know the canopy has had a coat of paint!

I wanted to add some disused sidings on the approach to the (for now) last station, I couldn't get the right sort of 'abandoned' look using standard track, so I've made some bespoke track, which when covered in weeds will really look the part, I hope...

Apologies to Mr Graymac, I've borrowed your wooden sleeper texture temporary from Kilmagranny during construction of this. 

I may even add some old semaphores to really add to the forgotten 'Northern' feel.

Do you want some texture material for disused tracks? Also, if it really is disused, plant birches on there. These are basically the first bigger plants to grow on disused tracks.

Thanks for the offer, I may take you up on it at some point.

For the time being, my disused sidings have found a use, housing Graymacs Mk1 coaches.

Here we see the approach to the final (for now) station.

Done some more work on the station canopy and made one for the opposite platform, just need a nice LNER style footbridge now to complete the first station.

I've ventured outside London a couple of times!
Once when we went to Liverpool and once when we offended some OAPs on a bus and fled to Reading!

Their rural cousin from Derby, a Class 108 Lightweight.  Class 114s were heavier and longer, while Class 107s were just heaver.  No 114s had a roof mounted headcode panel, later 108s and all 107s did.

The real giveaway for a 108 (especially if you can't see the entire vehicle) is that the bodyside windows are lower- tops line up with the top of the door windows, on a 107 or 114, they're centred.  The Early Derby Lighweight sets had the low sise windows too.

It’s still being worked on, just very slowly... 

My plan at the moment is to add some scenery around the station in the above screenshot, fix all the bugs I keep finding, add a few passing trains and get a release together! My current estimate is some time before 2025. :-)

I've done a bit of work on the bull head rails posted in the screenshots earlier in this thread, I've added 3D chairs and made the rail the correct shape.

I'm now quesioning how much detail is too much...

Thanks, the straight and curved bits of track were pretty straight forward to make, it's pointwork I've struggled with, so, to constuct the pointowrk, I've combined three seperate objects based on a TrackGen switch.

Now I've created a usable set of bullhead rail objects, I may import them into my Isle of Wight route to add to the ambience.
