Out and about in 1950's Sydney

Hi All,

With the mainframe nearly fully functional I decided to mess about with an activity that I had been making for Brian Bere-Streeter's Main Illawarra V3.
The run is to be the first half of the South Coast Daylight Express form Sydney Terminal to Wollongong with 3801 and a Tuscan and Russet HUB set.
I have so far put a large amount of the Suburban AI traffic in place, particularly around Sydney Terminal.

Just before you are due to depart this is the sight that you are greeted with:



Redfern, being the next stop with all the AI still funneling through:



It is a great busy feeling to the start of the activity, though it hurts the frame rates on my PC Crying or Very sad

Nice to see that someone is still interested in my Main Illawarra.

However, don't forget that although I made a number of custom structures for Central and Redfern (and many other places) and fleshed out the scenery for this part of the route, the track and associated infrastructure was originally laid out by Peter Newell - so, due credit must be given to Peter as well - however once out at Erskineville and beyond down to Bombo it is all my work, then from Bombo to Bomaderry is my rework of Paul Woozley's original pioneering Illawarra route.

Regards, Brian

Well as I happen to travel on this line between Kirrawee to Bondi every day, I am pretty sure that I will always come back to it.
By the way Brian, thank you for the information that you sent me, I have made adjustments to the traffic and static stock at the start of the activity.

Two more photo's, the first is at Hurstville. There are 2 Red Rattlers and a steam passenger service before this creeps through:



A little further down the line and 3801 is leaving the old Como Bridge over the Georges River:



Currently I am having issues with timings at Sutherland. I hope to have that fixed soon.
I have noticed that whilst running MSTS that the second hand processor is running at maximum, which is not good news for modelling....
