My first attempt NYMR

Post by gougha »

Hi all.

I know the route is already out there as the excellent Heartbeat Moor but I read on here somewhere that if you intend to start a project you might as well pick one that you want to do or you will get bored and not finish it. As I used to live just down the road from Pickering in Thornton dale I used to go and see the NYMR fairly frequently. So here goes on what I anticipate will be a lot of nights sat in front of my computer.

I have posted some early screenshots (I hope) on here of Pickering Station.

Regards

Andy

Welcome Andy. Nice start - are those your custom objects?

Couple of things - your track spacing looks a little tight, what track rule are you using? Also I can see that you have an unformed junction (ie with no frog), I'd sort that out before you go too far.

Hi Guys. Thanks for the replies.

They are my models. Still a way to go with the texturing but I’m getting there. Also thanks for the observations on the track. I hadn’t noticed the unformed junction. I suspect the track will need relaying. When I put it down I hadn’t got a clue about track rules (Still not sure I have to be honest.) I was using the track generic yard 01 with a speed limit of 25mph. I know the best way is to create my own. That’s another learning curve for me.

Regards

Andy

Hi Andy.

Lovely to see some custom models! They really do bring it to life! Please feel free to keep sharing your progress with us. We'll give all advise and help we can. But more importantly, that bit encouragement you'll need to carry on!

Keep at it!

Regards

Custom objects was what made 'Heartbeat Moor' turn more freelance than an exact copy.

Agreeing with Matt, nice work on Pickering :wink:

Oh VERY good! :D I wish you all the best with this project. The guys on this forum are really great for giving you an A to Z for route-building, should you ever need any assistance. Also, there are a few of us here who work on the line as volunteers, Jem and myself are Grosmont MPD staff, no doubt there will be more users here who volunteer on the line, but anyway, should you need any route-specific questions and guidance then feel free to drop a PM to me or the others (I'm sure they wont mind :wink: ) and we'll see what we can do.

Good luck!

Hi

Just thought Id keep you updated with my progress. I have now built a few of the buildings that are near to the station at Pickering. Here are some images of Park Street and Bridge Street. I have also decided to build my own road system to try and make it more authentic.

Hi,

Looks great - I know its a lot of work building custom assets - but it really looks worth the effort.

Excellent work

Custom scenery makes a big difference and although it may take a long time to create a route this way, it really is worth the effort.
