Trainz (TANE) Water Of Coate Route

Postby BigVern » Thu Nov 02, 2017 10:24 pm

I have another, somewhat less ambitious route hopefully going live in the next few days for Trainz/TANE. Inspired by the Model Railroad craze in TANE I decided to do a variation on a theme and adapt our local Swindon miniature railway, located at Coate Water, to a full size replica. The end result is quite different to what you see going around in 1/8th scale but I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I decided with this one not to feather off the edges to give a baseboard and model railway room appearance but landscaped the edges to put the route in a more natural surrounding. To drive around all the loops, or ride as a virtual passenger, takes around 30 minutes. The session I've included with the route "Intensive Service" started out as a stress test of capacity on the route and has 7 trains circling for over 2 hours on - initially - a three minute headway. Much to my surprise the TANE signaling stood up quite well to this albeit a few aspect changes were observed.
