Hiya guys,
Now at my site- V1.0.8.3 of the Plymouth Route demo :)
I've been focusing on major improvements to the bridge & viaduct textures as shown below:


Plymouth Station has had more details added:


The bridge after Keyham has now been extended & rebuilt in full 3d, using the same style as the Royal Albert Bridge-


A few more screenies & the download as usual may be found at my site.

Cheers

I ve took it for a little spin and here's some constructive critisism.

1. The home signal at Plymouth never clears even when the signal after it does and its right above you so you have to SPAD it.

2. The signal after the Plymouth home signal is floating in mid-air.

3. I think that 60mph is abit too much for a speed limit. Either that or the curves are too sharp.

4. The 20mph PSR on the approach to stations comes abit of surprise so an AWB is needed.

Apart from that a very good effort and lovely drive!

I believe that is the line speed, i think it's down to routebuilder and the sharp curves...

The royal albert bridge is fantastic! Just like the real thing!

The signal at Plymouth is never supposed to clear- It controls the central line, and has nothing to do with your line. (Perhaps it could be a little further out though :) )
The 60 is the linespeed in Plymouth, I believe that the linespeed after Saltash should actually be 125, but I have no firm data on this, so I've left it at 60. The only stations for which the PSR is probably wrong are St. Germans & Menheniot, but still :D
Yes, the curves are RB's fault! I am slowly dealing with things like that though.

Edit: Found the floating signal, definitely shouldn't be doing that :roll: I'll fix it later.

Cheers

Sorry I dont understand what you mean by 'the central line'. Theres only 1 line which I can see going out from Plymouth :-?

There are three tracks between the platforms. You are running on the first track, the central track is normally used for goods trains waiting for the line ahead. The signal is controlling this track.
So:
============Track 1- This is your track.

============Track 2- This is what the signal is controlling

============Track 3- This is the track for the opposite platform.

Is that any clearer?
