With the aim of releasing Wessex Mainlines pt1, I just would to see if people were interested.

Pt 1 Covers Trowbridge to Westbury, Westbury to Castle Cary and everything in between (merehead and whatley quarries, the Westbury Cement works and Dilton Marsh on the Wessex Mainline to Salisbury). This part has already been released on UKTS but I fully understand that people who are not paid member have struggled so will hopefully get uploaded to here.

Pt 2 Covers Castle Cary to Weymouth and the small branch to Yeovil Junction from Pen Mill (keeping the Semiphore signals) This section is currently being worked on.

Pt 3 onwards will cover everything from Bristol in the north down to Exeter in the South.

If anyone has a question let me know and I will try to answer / help.

Many thanks

Yes please. I didn't download V1 because of its size - even with a subscription it would be iffy with our internet.
So having the route uploaded onto TSSH would be great. It looks really interesting.
I assume that it will be OR compatible.

I also have the first version installed and would welcome updates. Activities would also be useful!

Hi Andy,
Yes, it's still available!  UKTS_36511 - it's under the 'Routes' entry, along with several other routes, within the Routes section!

Cheers,
Ged

I am glad to see people are still interested in the route of which will encourage me and my co-producer (of whom needs a lot of credit) to carry on.

I did ask for UKTS to put the route in its own sub section in routes but this was never done.

The plan is to upload to drop box and then just keep updating so the file size will just grow.

As for activities for the route I have looked into but couldn't figure out on how to do this, by putting in the major paths i was hoping that others could generate some excellent activities from the quarries or from the preserved railway.

Wessex Mainlines will not be the only release we shall do possible 2 or 3 more routes of which I cannot divulge at this time.

Does anyone have any questions or would like to contribute towards this route then please do get in contact with me.

Hello all again.
I am pleased to announce that the Wessex Mainlines V1.2 is soon to be released via dropbox to the site.
If anyone has questions or would like to be a tester please let me know via pm.

Hopefully we shall get a page on the main site under the name of Wessex Team and all things MSTS that we do will be put on there, UKTS will still have up to V1.2 but from here on in this will be its first upload.

Will put another post up when route is ready

Many thanks

Craig

Hi Craig,

Whilst running the route I have noticed that the points don't move. I have several routes that use UKFS and in these the points work perfectly so is this a result of the particular points used or is it me? I have the "fix" installed to correct the shimmering when running with Open Rails.

As I indicated in my pm to you I have finished the current activities for the Dorset Coast Route and I am now starting on some for your route.

Regards,

Stephen

Hi Stephen,
Is it the fact that the points DO move, but the wrong way? There is at least one set of UKFS points that has this problem - ukfs_tr_32m_4d4.s  The left hand version of these points might have the same problem.
Frank Sandwell very kindly supplied me with the fixed shape several years ago and I'm sure he won't mind if I offer it to you.  If this is your problem, let me know and I'll attach it to my next post (assuming the system will let me!).
I've also got what appears to be the left hand version shape, but didn't get it from Frank (don't know where!).

Cheers,
Ged

I have the last version of Route Riter released by Mike Simpson.

On the MSTS File Utils tab, there are two command buttons :

'Find stuck points in route'                   and

'Correct stuck points'.

I haven't had a need to use these, so don't know how they work, but maybe it is worth a try to see if your problem is fixed !

Regards, Brian

Hey all,

I currently have v1.2 in my inbox at present, so when i get the chance i will give the route a once over then will ask Justin to put the link on the site.

Hopefully a nice route to try out the re-released MT stock.

Many thanks

Hi Brian,

I tried your suggestion using Route Riter without any luck. The points also don't move with MSTS.
I'll see what happens when v1.2 is released.

Regards,

Stephen
