BVE Cornwall: The Plymouth Route V1.3.0.0

Post by leezer3 on Sun Apr 13, 2014 7:46 pm

I’m pleased to announce that the Plymouth Route has now been updated to V1.3.0.0!
This release concentrates on two major areas-

  1. Much of the stock has been refurbished- Completely new MK1s, and a lot of new freight stock is visible, courtesy  of the NNR freight train!
  2. 1.5km of track has been added at the start of the route, bringing our starting point to just past Tavistock Junction.


The 1.5km of new trackwork gives a short run alongside the river Plym, and past the extremely complex Laira Depot. There are also various other bits and bobs that have been tweaked and upgraded as usual.
I’m not yet sure exactly where things will go next, but the line into Cornwall is definitely in need of refurbishment- It’s just easier and more pleasing to build something entirely new for a change!

As always, thanks to those whose work has been 'vandalised' to make this route what it is- In particular for this update, Steve Thomas & Graymac Smile

Cheers

Yep, things are running quite fast at the minute Smile

I've built about 50% of a replacement station building for the up platform at Saltash this morning, although the terrain work there will be a pig to get right! Also needs a down platform building and a covered footbridge (Demolished sometime in the mid 80s I think) plus the small platform mounted signalbox, so quite a bit of work there!

The next release will probably end up being between a refurbishment of the line between Saltash and Defiance Platform, which needs somewhere about 1.5km of distance adding and the curves completely redoing.

Cheers
