Excellent work!  Especially the stations and road overbridges. I can't thank thank you enough for including the sections of tramline and the St Kilda and Port Melbourne lines. The Melbourne trams need a home.

Is Melbourne's Southern Cross station likely to be included or not.

Anyway keep up the excellent work.

The section of tramline between the siding in Jolimont and the corner of Flinders street and Spencer street will be drivable, but it's more for the novelty value than anything else. If someone is a sucker for punishment it might be possible to include a full route.

The era is obstensibly 1987, though there's a few small inconsistancies. The city was changing so fast at that time there were changes every year. So the suburban platforms of Spencer Street will be included.

Thanks very much. Don't worry the inconsistancies. It should be an excellent route.

Almost ready for a beta release. Signalling Completed, everything is finally done, there are a few faults with signals that need to be fixed, our testers will find some solutions to that.

We just need to gain permissions for the use of other objects and prepare documentation and make activities and timetables and what not.

Beside that, it's 98% done and almost ready to go.

Cheers,

Justin.

Sort of but not just yet, Some station buildings have not yet been constructed. All track is done, Signals and what not.

All scenery is in, it's just small additional stuff that takes time to make like the rest of the station buildings and the light towers for the MCG.

Those will come additionally, perhaps part of a later update or even when the extension to Hurstbridge has been completed.

Cheers,

Justin.

Just be aware that this kind of question generally isn't liked in the MSTS community.

"Just Like when I finish it"  Does that like sound good to you? Laughing

This route is nearly finished, patience is a virtue, we're going over everything, making sure it won't upset anybody's computer before we release it.

And it may just be the best Australian MSTS Route to date.

We do apologize for the delay, Before xmas was just an estimated time frame, it wasn't a confirmed time in which the route would be released by.

Right now we're going over a few things, life outside of MSTS has been quite busy for us from time to time so the limited time we have is just what we have to work with.

I see we're going with a realistic government approach here, where the minister announces a project before any costing or engineering assesment has been done to see if it's actually possible.

No.

The era is obstensibly 1987, the Whittlesea line had been closed ~30 years at that time and South Morang was still more than 20 years in the future.

Soon hopefully. There was a stoppage of work over christmas, and then a few signaling issues were identified which I'm working on now.
