Hi Stephen

I've completed Low Moor to Hillhouse Yard Return successfully.

I am almost lost for words!

An amazing activity and a stunning demonstration of the capabilities of Open Rails, and your own talents.

Many thanks
Mike

Hi All,

My next activity for the Huddersfield and Environs 1920 has now been uploaded to UKTS as

File ID: 37596 Name:S - Manchester_Leeds .

Again it is for Open Rails only as it uses Open Rails specific functions. It is also a bit easier than the last one but it should still keep you on your toes.

Mike, thanks for your kind comments, always appreciated.

Regards,

Stephen

Hi Stephen

Thanks for another smashing activity.

The AI at Huddersfield was particularly impressive, and the weather change added to the enjoyment.

The brakes seemed much more responsive following the recent Open Rails improvements, making the driving a much more pleasant experience, and the signal checks much easier to cope with.

One small point - the activity description and installation text document wrongly refers to your previous Low Moor Yard to Hillhouse Yard activity.

Thanks again
Mike

Hi Mike,

Oops thanks for pointing out my error - I'd used that one as a template and will correct asap.

Hi Mike,

Mike wrote:One small point - the activity description and installation text document wrongly refers to your previous Low Moor Yard to Hillhouse Yard activity.

Having rechecked all the documentation what I wrote was

Please read the Huddersfield and Environs 1920 - Guidelines for Realistic Traffic Workings contained in V2 as this gives the required downloads.
- that is the only specific reference to any of my previous activities.

Sorry if I have caused any confusion.

I agree that the brakes are much better but reading UKTS and Elvas Tower forums reveals that this has created other problems with tender engines using the front coupler - hopefully this will be quickly rectified. This also reminds me of the early MSTS front coupler issues.

As before, thank you for your feedback, it's always nice to read what other people think of my efforts.

Regards

Hi All,

Following on from Mike's comments I have found my error and re-uploaded the activity.

My sincere apologies to Mike for doubting his word, I should have checked my work more carefully.

Regards,

Hi Stephen

Thanks for yet another super activity showing off part of the new sections of the route. It is such a privilege to enjoy the route, the stock and the Open Rails activities provided for it.

Thanks also, of course, to Brian for the ever expanding and scenically excellent route, and to the creators of the splendid period stock.

Regards
Mike

There are now four more Dorset Coast Activities uploaded ready for your enjoyment(??)

File ID: 37821 Name:S - Waterloo P11_KewF_Windsor
File ID: 37820 Name:S - Waterloo P7_Dorking
File ID: 37822 Name:S - Welsh Rugby Special
File ID: 37823 Name:S - Windsor_WaterlooP16

Some of these have taken a lot of work to get them working as I wanted so please make sure that you follow the instructions carefully.

As usual, any comments are welcome,

Stephen

Hi Stephen

Thanks for the excellent set of Dorset Coast activities.

I have completed them all successfully and appreciate the amount of work that you must have put in to create these.

The special Open Rails weather and AI movements were very impressive, together with the volumes of traffic in and around the Waterloo to Clapham Junction stretch.

The route and stock is a bit too modern for my liking (I prefer BR green and earlier), but nonetheless I had great enjoyment running these.

Many thanks for your continuing Open Rails efforts.

Kind regards, Mike.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the kind comments, they are much appreciated.

Do you have a particular route and motive power for your favourite era? If so I might try to make some activities at some point in the future. At the moment I'm trying to make some for the upcoming Huddersfield and Environs V4, unfortunately progress is slow for various reasons but I will get there.

Regards,

Stephen

Hi Stephen

I haven't really any one particular favourite route. Anything with a sixties or earlier feel to it is fine with me, and any region.

Also happy with either steam, diesel or electric traction, or, ideally a mixture of all three, because that is what I grew up with.

Thank you for asking
Mike

Hi All,

Finally I've managed to finish two more activities for the Huddersfield and Environs 1920 Route. These are for Version 4 and Open Rails only. There is one more in the final testing stages which should be finished in the next day or two. All of these have taken a lot of effort to get them working as I wanted - I hope the results are satisfactory. They are all based on what might happen but not necessarily what did.

Mike, I haven't forgotten that I said I'd make an activity for you, that is next on my agenda. Can you please give a choice of routes as there is no point in producing an activity for a route which you don't have!!

Regards,

Stephen

That's very kind of you Stephen.

In no particular order my preferences are Black Country 1, Cannock Chase 5, London and South East, Mid East Plus, Peak Line and Potteries Loop Line.

I'm looking forward to the new activities for the extended Huddersfield and Environs route.

Thanks
Mike

No offence intended Danny. Embarassed

It's just that I have run so many activities on South East during testing that I wanted to choose some routes that had not seen any new activities for a while.

Please forgive me. Wink

No worries Mike - I was only joking. Very Happy I'm probably too restricted in my rail interests anyway - it's only ever been Southern and LMS for me. Wink

Hi All,

My latest activity S - Bradford_Holmfirth Return from the Huddersfield and Environs 1920 V4 has now been uploaded and approved. This is the last one for the time being as there are other train simulator things I wish to do.

David Forrest reported that he ran out of coal and water at Cooper Bridge while running S - Thornhill_Sowerby Bridge, the reason is an incorrect line in the eng. file. IsTenderRequired(1) This should be IsTenderRequired(0)

Regards,

Stephen
