    Go North East has eight left - three at Gateshead, five at Stanley in Co Durham, all usually confined to scholars work, although one could be found on Metro rail replacement work last night.

    Re - introduction

    Good to hear from you again Ed! I'm not as active on Forums as I was and haven't done much BVEing for a while. However, I'm easing myself back into the swing of things with a little project I'm working on! Kind regards eezypeazy

    Running Open BVE?

    ECML comes as a self-installer. If you had simply allowed it to place all the objects in the default folders, you would not be having these problems. You will also need the BRSigs, formerly available at trainsimcentral. If you don't have a copy of these, please contact me. Regards eezypeazy

    BVE Copyright Reminder

    In 'olden' days, when novelists offered their typed manuscripts to pubishers and sent them by Royal Mail, it was common practice to post a carbon copy of the work back to themselves at the same time. When the novelist received his copy back in the post, he would keep it unopened, because the...

    Longest route?

    Carlisle - Sunderland (the Tyne valley route) is approx. 70 route miles as modelled. I have built the Durham Coast route southwards from there as far as Greatham, but this is still very much a 'work in progress' - ie, I don't think it's up to a good enough standard to be released yet. That's...

    New station on the ECML - Belford

    ... and I very nearly went to live up there forty years ago, which, Dave, would probably mean that your present employee would never have existed! Strange world, isn't it?!? Regards eezypeazy

    New station on the ECML - Belford

    There's a little more detail reported by the Berwick Advertiser. The Belford Station scheme is only costing £600,000 - hardly a drop in the DfT's oceanic budget! Let's say that it attracts six return journey passengers a day - that's six entries and six exits, making 12 a day in total, five...

    Wood Lane WIP

    Surely this is one of the reasons why the major TOCs use simulators? Don't they enable drivers to experience some of the major features of a route without having to be on it? And even if you're driving it as a game, surely the challenge must be to learn the route and drive it accordingly...

    How do you add external views to trains in Open BVE?

    If you pop over to BVE Pages there are some exterior views for some trains, including an Arriva livery for a 142. There are instructions there as to how to make it work. There's also quite a good listing of available exteriors on the BVE Routes Wiki. The link to the listing page is here...

    Club 55 rides again

    Northern operate the NCL - CAR section of the through trains under contract to Scotrail. I believe that Northern Rail's similar promotion is offering returns for a fiver, should the NCL-CAR section not be included in the Scottish promotion. There are currently three trains a day NCL to Glasgow...
