For those who haven't read the 'Trainspotters Required' thread, I'd just like to highlight the release of our very own 'Dennis''s freight line! :D It is a superb 30 minute run and can be obtained from his website - http://www.freewebs.com/dennislance

It is a stunning route Dennis - look forward to the additional scenarios :D

Oh, the route is now also available from trainsimcentral as requested by the man himself.

Cheers for the favourable reception...wasn't sure how well the route would go down after following what seemed to be sometimes quite painful gestations of other routes. I am still learning and am reasdy to accept constructive criticism.

Forgot to say thanks to all the train developers...I appreciate that routes and trains rely on each other but without excellent contributions such as the 37, 66, 158 etc the whole BVE scene would soon wither. Train builders, keep up the good work (any chance of a 1st generation DMU though?)

No offence to yourself Dennis but I shall update the database with the TSC URL as Freewebs doesn't like your bandwidth usage ;)

Well done Dennis, and anyone else concerned. It is an excellent project!
BTW: I hpe there can be a few passenger scenarios one day! The 158 for example would be great on the route. :D

Took it for sort of a spin, well 5 minutes to be precise! Looks excellent and I can't wait eventually finish the route once I've sorted out my Gfx card problem.:)

5fps with lowest detail and in Window Mode isn't my idea of fun. :(

Excellent! Just driven it - if this is your first attempt I look forward to later releases! A few minor niggles here and there but otherwise fine!

Looks very promising. You asked for some constructive criticisms so one I would point out is that I'm not keen on the track texture you used. This is subjective I know, but I much prefer the track texture used by routes such as Cross-City South, Maybank, etc. I don't like the ballast/trackbed textures either. However, there isn't much else to fault apart from that - you certainly have talent as a route builder and I look forward to seeing your future work.

No - I don't like the track textures either (in fact I hate it). Keep meaning to take some pics of track to use as a better texture but keep forgetting. One day soon...

Very pleasing route Dennis. Throughly enjoyed it, reminded me of a local route...shame theres no BVE4 Class 56 for this run, apart from the track textures a fun drive, look forward to your next route your working on :)

Fixed my Gfx Card problem. Get an average of 41fps on the route. :)

Excellent Route and I look foward to future developments over at Dennis HQ. :)

My only suggestion is to have an alternative traction route. e.g. With a 47, 56 or even a 66 in the future!

Good Luck! :)

Responding to various points raised...yes the track texture is awful - but I have yet to make one that looks better.

Regarding traction, the route is set in mid-late eighties, before TPWS. Drive a BVE 2 train and imagine the AWS is isolated.

I am currently working on a scenario using the 66 - a bit more of a challenging drive (although I do enjoy thrashing the 37 up the hills).

Passenger version also to follow.

41 FPS - wow, thats amazing.

make sure you are using BVE 4.2 - I was horrified to find it didn't work on Jims PC after it had been released. He was using 4.1 and got a very similar error message. Works fine now that the laest version of BVE has been installed.

Check that you have the 37 Freight Version. If not, try the Freight Route with another Train e.g. 66 or LT1995. Then report back! :)
