British Transport Police Class 170407 APEP

Took a couple of days away to spend Valentines day with my better half ❤ and also catch up with some other stuff in life, but did have time to finish testing this one out.

Today I bring you the Armstrong Powerhouse enhancement pack version of the British Transport Police Class 170407.

Disclaimer:- This is about 99% accurate and may (still) be subject to change.
Some users on lower graphic settings may experience one or some of the logos phasing in and out, this is due to me using a silly amount of decals (probably).

1 thing to note though, is it does look good on a straight.

Scotrail Inter7City

After today’s press releases of the 7 Cities livery at Brush Loughborough actually coming to the real world. I thought I’d update my conceptual one and bring it to the real world standard.

Version 2
Removed the Saltire on the nose, deepened the blue a tad, and added the new Inter7City logo. I also expanded the Scotrail logo slightly and positioned it slightly higher up, widened the yellow bands by the windows and rounded them off at the lights. Made the roof blue and added the correct numbering for all 54 Powercars that are heading Scotrails way. (Thanks to Steve Roberts for the number info).

Once again, thanks for visiting the site today and I wonder if the copycat gang will suddenly have their own version of this in a day or 2, just like the last 2 Scotrail HST’s?

Lets wait and see shall we?

Grand Central 170 APEP

Grand Central Turbostar APEP edition (Fictional)

A “What if?” livery. In a mirror Universe somewhere, Grand Central took these off of Scotrails hands – and here is the result.
Also featuring Chris Horsfields custom made destination blinds for the Grand Central network.

2x 4 coach quick drives have also been included. One driving the gold (First Class) end and the other driving the silver (Standard class) end.

 

A huge thank you to Chris Horsfield for making the custom destination blinds for this.

Borders Railway Class 170 APEP

With the exciting new release of the Armstrong Powerhouse Class 170 Enhancement pack. I can now gladly release more up to date versions of my repaints.

The first to get such treatment is 170414 Borders Railway.  After initial screenshot posts, I was reminded to use the proper headlights by a few of you out there. 😉 don’t worry.. That’s been addressed as you can see by the shots below.

Included are a couple of quick drives depending on which end you would prefer to drive.

A huge thank you to RMills and the UKTS team for the use of their decals when originally making this, without their work and guidance this would not have been possible.

Next on the list of updates to the new standard will be the fictional Grand Central and then the British Transport Police 170407

Once again, Thanks to all involved in the making of this and I would like to thank you all for visiting today.

Keep an eye out for the other repaints over the next couple of days. I shall probably do the Grand Central one 1st and the the BTP on Saturday.

Happy driving. 😀

Angus Scenarios

A couple of quick updates today for the Angus route. The first being an amalgamation of all the Rosgar Scenarios for the Angus route in one file and the second is an upload of a scenario I made quite a while back as part of the Snacktime series competition.

Knickerbocker Glory Parts 1 & 2 are based on a real world situation that introduced me to the world of Rail. I had been on trains before but this was when I started to take an interest in them.

Other works in progress are more work on the Angus route and also sorry for being vague, but I am re-working the Wessex Alphaline 158s (158855 and 158860) from scratch so they look proper nice instead of doing just a skin transplant on them.  I just didn’t want to be posting photos up or giving you click bait without a timeline as I have been short on project time the last couple of weeks due to other commitments (Work).

More vagueness, but I also had a couple of crazy reskins half done, but I’ll leave those as a surprise for now. I don’t tend to discuss my upcoming plans publicly anymore as my ideas tend to be stolen or copied.

Once again folks, thanks for visiting my site and your continued support and I hope to have more for you soon.

Class 150/2 Wessex Trains Fleet pack

Welcome to the weekend – It’s a Wessex Weekend.

I am extremely proud to present the Class 150/2 Wessex Trains Fleet pack for both Armstrong Powerhouse and Thomson versions of the Class 150/2.

Took me a day or two longer than originally planned, but I thought I’d update the Thomson/Oovee ones whilst I was doing the Armstrong Powerhouse ones. I also found a few of my earlier ones were in need of a bit of a tidy up, so I happily gave them a make-over too and now it gives me great pleasure to release them for the community in one big pack with a bat file included for easy installation.

So if you already have my previous Thomson ones, then I would recommend you download the pack and overwrite them, as you will be able to enjoy the updated textures that I did for them all.
