A South West Trains shunter recently started work on a Class 465 (using an MSTS cab) for BVE4. I then sent him my Class 455 'Southern' refurb cab shot [here] and he has started work on that too. Another project being worked on is a 'Slammer'. Excuse the numbers at the top of the images - they are not on the final trains. This will now allow me to work on my route rather than the trains.

Am i the only one who has seen the preview then :mrgreen:
Anyone who visits TSC's forum has I expect...

In readiness for the 455, today I have been getting stuck in on my route, starting by tidying up the builder's merchant at Banstead. Before it was a lot smaller and I had tried to cover up the fact it was empty :lol: I've now enlarged it to a more realistic size and will now start adding bits inside from a typical builder's merchant such as skips, piles of wood, vans etc. Just to give you an idea of what I'm on about I have put a few items from the Network West Midlands route in the yard.

Very nice, you wait ages for some SR 3rd rail trains to be made for BVE4 then 3 come at once. Are these going to have adapted plug-ins to simulate things like conductor rail gaps?

They certainly will! Pete is a shunter so he knows about the technical side of things that I don't.

Hi Guys,

I should be starting to release some of these trains pretty soon, starting with the 455.

The 465 needs a little more work to the power/brake level bars on the dash.

The 444 Desiro is in working condition, and has 50% of its sounds, however the dash needs work due to the photo being taken on a dodgy angle! :dontknow:

The 421 will recieve quite a lot of attention, an will be released on my site to support my project (which is in my sig).

Future plans hold a 456 and a 376 / 377 possibly ;)


I've got quite a bit of work on this week especially, so i should anticipate the first release in the next few days at the earliest.
