Here are some shots from Don Hinton's Black Country 1 route. These were taken in MSTS as opposed to those in my BC thread in OR Screenshots.

Black Five 4-6-0 No.45308 passes Bushbury shed with a Wolverhampton to Stafford local. On shed are G2 7F 0-8-0 No.49154 and 3F 0-6-0 No.47279...



Also on shed is G2 No.49125 which has just been coaled at the tower...

Here are 3 more shots from Black Country 1.

Castle 4-6-0 No.4095 Harlech Castle awaits departure from the down end of Birmingham Snow Hill with an express for Birkenhead...



Just beyond the platforms at Snow Hill, Modified Hall 4-6-0 No.6998 Burton Agnes Hall waits by the North signal box to take over another down express...



Not far into its journey, Harlech Castle pounds through Handsworth & Smethwick...

I've been enjoying the Bedford-Hitchin Branch V1, a route by Charles Malcolm, which is "A sixteen mile ex Midland Railway branch set in the 1950's linking the ECML at Hitchin and the MML at Bedford."
Sometimes I don't want to drive a multi-hundred mile, multi-hour route. Just a pleasant jaunt in the country is enjoyable too.

At Hitchin station, the passengers will wait for a faster train to take them to a faster pace of life:

Plenty of advice on terrain textures in the route building forum Andy, but basically each tile is bespoke and was created using photoshop. PM me if you want more details.

Cheers

It must have been spectacular, standing at a quiet station getting bored, then the Coronation Scot comes storming through.

A rare quiet moment at St Pancras station in Clive Heard's Thames-Trent V2 route.
At the time of the real station's opening in 1868, the train shed roof was the largest single-span roof in the world.
