I have been making a number of signal boxes based on the Saxby and Farmer pattern used on ex LBSCR lines, two of which are shewn.
I hope to obtain permission from Rick Loader to upload these, as I have used his roof, doors and lever frame.
I wonder if anyone would find them useful. There are eight or more varieties so far.

Thanks. There are quite a few more to follow: all wood, all brick, stairs parallel to the sides etc.,etc. Variations on a theme. Very lucky to have Rick Loader's permission to use his lever frame, roof, doors and a few bits and pieces. It made the job much easier.

Very nice.

Would it be possible to arrange the textures such that a simple adjustment to the texture files could change the base green/cream to other railway colours, like, maroon/cream, chocolate/cream, blue/cream, etc.

It should be quite easy. I will have a go later on. You will have a fit when you see how inefficiently I have used the textures. Roderic

I have had a quick shot at altering a texture.
Roderic's Yard - Page 2 Shortn10
It's not too difficult, thought the doors are more of a challenge. Some adjustment of the tolerance of the colour replacer is necessary.
Feel free to have a go when the files are available.

On the subject of red locomotives, Fred Dibnah's Railway Collection has some shots of Princess Elizabeth and the Duchess of Sutherland in L.M.S. red. They take your breath away. They really do.

Kind regards,
Roderic

I have uploaded several signal boxes to UKTrainSim and made some improvements. I could do with a signalman. A flat one (two-sided) would do. Any suggestions?

I am about to upload a pair of timber Southern Railway signal boxes with forward-facing stairs. I have included improved textures and also proper night textures as well as snow. To get good night textures I had to reduce the saturation as much as the lightness, otherwise some colours turned red. I have also found some signalmen by courtesy of Modelu, who make superb finescale figures for every scale from N to 0. I hope to revise earlier models to bring them up to standard.

I have been working on Hever station building, made from some photographs I took two years ago. It needs some more work yet, and I hope to make a separate canopy which can be adjusted to suit the width of the platform. At present I am using a canopy downloaded from UKTS. This building, with minor modifications, will do for Edenbridge Town, Hever, Cowden and Ashurst.

I have been working on station buildings and canopies. This is not quite right as the right-hand platform shelter should be the other side of the bridge at Ashurst, but I need to build a new s-shaped footbridge first. I hope to upload these buildings before too long.

I have been trying to restore the roof of Charing Cross Station. I have done only the glazed panels so far, but these disappear when viewed at certain angles.Roderic's Yard - Page 2 Cxroof10

I wonder if anyone can explain this mystery and tell me what to do about it.

Hi Roderic.

When I was making my snap together walls and fences, to make them work I had to put the point of origin close to the end of the shape, as viewed in Train Sim Modeller I usually put the point of origin to the left of the shape, and they always worked fine, but if I put the point of origin close to the right as viewed in TSM, I had the disappearing problem, I never knew why that happened, but after that I always put the origin closer to the left than to the right, even if only by a tiny amount where I wanted the origin in the centre.

Someone else may have a better answer to it, but that was how I got round it, not sure if it is the same situation with other 3D software as I only ever used TSM.

Hi Roderic,

Have you added roof panels separately ? If so it might help if you joined all the panels and made a single object.

I have a signalman if you still need one.

Hi Danny,

Yes, I made the panel pieces separately, joined them to make a complete panel, multiplied and joined all together. At present they are AlphDkShd. I tried AlphDkShd+, but I have not yet tried AlpDkShd-.
