Title: North Western Railway (NWR)/Sodor Railway created by Jap Train Fan
Post by: jap train fan on December 16, 2013, 10:25:20 AM
Hi guys. this is my first contribution to the Simutrans community that has not failed. My Pak 128 Australia is permanently shelved at the moment as I have no time to work on it. Feel free to make one guys. Anyways I have started working on a recreation of the North Western Railway (NWR)/Sodor Railway which is mush less time consuming. Enjoy

my first screenshot

oh well.
anyway heres a list of the locos i will be using. SG only. NG line will be made without any locos for now. More locos will come as I move further away from the original non CGI series
Thomas   LB&SCR E2 class.
Edward    Furness Railway K2 or NER Class R (LNER Class D20)

Henry   LMS Stanier Class 5MT 4-6-0 (Black Five)
Gordon   LNER A0 /A1
James   L&YR Class 28
Percy   GWR No. 1340 Trojan

Toby   GER Class C53 (LNER Class J70)
Emily   GNR Stirling 4-2-2
Duck   GWR 5700 Class (Pannier Tank)
Donald & Douglas   Caledonian Railway 812 Class
Bill & Ben   Bagnall 0-4-0ST "Alfred" and "Judy"

Oliver   GWR 4800 (1400) Class

the ones in bold are not in Pak 128 Britain so if anyone can find them it will be appreciated. If not then suitable replacement will be found from the pak eg. using a LB&SCR E1 Class for Thomas, L&YR Class 25 for James

Vicarstown have relocated slightly more north to align with Henry's Tunnel. the route is not entirely accurate as I cannot create fine curves.

Henry's Tunnel is not enitrely accurate. the western side should be accurate except for the hill which should be a very gentle curve or straight (according to the tv show). The eastern side is not shown in the tv series. The route maps show the train gently curving towards vicarstown which is not possible in simutrans so I have made it a straight line
