The LT 1959 stock was made by Tom Beevers e.a., and he gave it to me for testing purposes end 2009. I like the train. I have sent a message to Tom to see if there are any updates available, and if I may release the train with my route.

Still working on the line. I just added a footbridge over the line, short before Highgate. For all those critics, remember it took me more than 6 hours of work, and that goes for all developers...

Well if that took you only 6 hours to do then I'm truly impressed. Well done my friend. That would probably take me 6 months.........! Any further joy with Finsbury Park?

Cheers,

John

Currently working on this piece of the route. It is a combination of a very elaborate railway junction and a LU line rising between the main line tracks, plus the housing in this part of London. What can be seen? What must be seen? What can be covered?

As many of you know Finsbury Park is a very messy station, about 4 metres above, and between two intersecting roads (Seven Sisters and Stroud Green). This is what I have built so far, and I'm still not satisfied:

Thank you! Today I added a track on the leftmost side, changed some buildings there, removed a building at Stroud Green road that stood in the way and was too modern, and now I'm working at the piece of track between FP station and the overbridge to Stroud Green. BVE does not allow you to turn to the right and then climb over the existing railroad without hundreds of tricks....

Here is the result. I checked with pictures from FP station, and it looks rather natural to me. I will leave it like that for the time being:

So much for Finsbury Park. The nexr project will be East Finchley station. The building is beautiful, I got permission from the old TSC to use the East Finchley-Finchley Central part of their Northern Line.
East Finchley i located just after a road undercrossing. The present situation is a 90 deg. crossing, but in fact the crossing is oblique, about 45 degrees. Now I have to re-arrange the overbridges to the station and make a new railway entrance. More to do!

Hmm it would have been more considerable to Private Message him as it helps by not resurrecting old posts which have not had updates for a while. It's up to the developer of that route whether he should update the topic or not. This helps by not cluttering the forum with non recent posts. If you need any help, then be sure to let us know and we can help where we can.

Thanks
