Well here we go with yet another project and this one is a monster, I've always loved the Train Operations from the NSW Hunter Valley Region so i thought i'm make a start on sum thing along those lines for Trainz.
The DEM has already been made and starts at Wyee thru to Newcastle Station then out too Ulan. So far i only have two pics to show but hopefully over the next 50 or so years i can get a few more out there..lol. Quite a few other projects i have in the works will also be shown in this thread as i think it would save me starting 20 new ones.
I had to make sum new Concrete Pylons for this bridge and kit bashed the rest till i get time to build sum thing more regognizable.

And here i have built two of the Station Buildings/Awnings along with the lift which isnt in the pic till i can find a better pic of it.

More soon hopefully time permitting, Anyone familiar with the area and has sumthing to add please don't hold back on me as i live in Mexico/Victoria its a bit too far to drive for the day for sum piccys, So i really would appreciate any info you could share
Cheers Mick.

Very Happy

You can see Moorandoo in that pic along with the coal pile's in the middle, Sum white area's on the map you can see is where there are no UTM Tile pic's available so those will be have to be referenced via Google Earth if and when we get that far. Sum of the tile's aren't all that usuable but for showing me where the the track lay's they will still be handy. All in all i'm quite happy with how this one turned out as last time i tried it the majority of the map looked crappy.

The Fuel Facility at Morandoo Port Waratah, The colour is way off but till i can find sum better textures that are correct this one will do for the time being.

Well since these monster's belong in the Hunter i'll stick this here, Still a heap of work to be done and with no really good close pic's to take detail's off i may have a few thing's wrong or out of place but i'm pretty wrapped i could get it this far, The main body and cab have been mapped and rendered and exported to Trainz with no mesh error's so far so yeah hopefully i can finish this one.
