The next installment is now available where we start constructing the track layout necessary for an island platform at the second station.

Modifications to the appearance of the track are also made together with the inclusion of train run sounds.

There is a bit of maths :( and logical thinking involved in this part so take your time and try and understand whats going on. The principles of the diverging curves will be covered again in the next part so don't worry if you just copy the code ad-verbatim at this stage.

The new track texture added also doesn't look quite right. I am not going to use any more of this track in the route until I have corrected it. It is included to demonstrate the principles involved in changing the appearance of objects.

Same here. I'm already THINKING of doing the wolves-wellington salop (maybe extending it to shrewsbury) line.

IF I do it will be with very basic (if any) sceneary (other than the essentials) and then releasing patches when I have the time, because I plan on being VERY busy over the next 3 years as an S&T engineering technician (still haven't heard anything yet,expecting it on Wednesday after I go camping for 3 days)
