Hmm… I wonder what Jagneta is working on in Auran/N3V’s Trainz 2010…
Oh. A fictional, freelanced route. Never mind then.

Still a WIP and will probably never be completed (as I have a [bad] tendency to keep starting over)…

I’ve tried numerous times to make a route in trainz… but I always mess up, and make it worse trying to fix it…. no matter what I see in my mind, I always end up with an extremly deep pit that all the trains fall into… ;~;

My advice is to just keep going. Trainz is not the most accurate program (as it was originally designed as a model railway simulator, not a train simulator), so there’s a lot of wiggle room. That’s one of the reasons I like the simulator much more than MSTS or Railworks.
Another piece of advice is to used the included fixed tracks (“FT straight 100m, FT 10 Deg 300m Rad, FT 15 Deg 1000m Rad, etc) and “way guages” that can be found built in and on the Download Station. I also tend to work very slowly, so what you see in the screenshots above took me about a month or so to do.
So, basically have fun with it.

Flashback Friday!
This was a piece of typographic imagery that I had to create in my first year of university which I really enjoyed doing…The task was to create a 3D image using pure typography [no images whatsoever] so I decided rather than pick a simple image I would use a complicated image….A train! to be more specific I used the Mallard; a 1930’s Steam Locomotive with an art deco flair, as most objects did in that decade and capturing the curves and brilliance of the locomotive was a hard task that took 3 long nights to do by hand in illustrator.In order to get the right effect i had my reference image which I printed off and wire framed to get the perspective right and drew out the individual letters first in pencil and then inked & coloured and then scanning it in to redo it digitally.
I loved this project so much!
