Found A early version on my old HDD started working on it again unfortunately dont have all the maps imported from sketchup and sketchup now doesn't support satellite imagery but here is some progress showing the said base maps on A completed and incomplete section.

Wow Kane, that is one very, very accurate layout. I'd recognise the place in my sleep (probably because I spent most of my time back then wishing I could get some sleep as I went by there :lol: ) I think Wembley, Willesden and Stonebridge Park are permanently imprinted on the few brain cells I've got left (along with one or two other busy places that I worked through over the years) because you used to have to stay fully aware of what was going on around you in those places and from there on into Euston. Eyes wide open and alert. Moving traffic all around you. One mistake and you'd be on the National evening news.

Looks a fantastic bit of work you've done there though Mate. Are you going to release it?

Cheers

Dave

Thanks Dave it will be released when finished will go from Euston to Watford junction it's not made with dem thought and has a section with a junction that doesn't really exist that may eventually lead to a harbour to run freight and ex line trains to.

Depending on the year your after, it was largely covered in sidings. The attached file shows an old map from 1975/76. Looking at a later one from 1988, it appears to be almost exactly the same.

That was Willesden Brent Sidings, Kane. It was a freight marshalling yard (till about the mid 90's, I think) - though it was very run down and full of weeds etc for a good while before it closed. They eventually just moved the freight a mile or so up the road to Wembley (the left end of that block of sidings in your overlay in reality) and then sold the land off.

Hope that helps Mate.

Cheers

Dave

Thanks for the info im thinking about building A mail depot there for all the excellent mail rolling stock available for the sectorisation period and some more shots from the London transport section of the layout.

Wow, these look superb. Can I ask how you got the satellite imagery into Trainz? I have no idea about TransDEM and have been looking for a way to put Google map images onto my baseboards to keep things to scale but I haven't found a single way.

They were made in sketchup just open sketchup and click geo location add imagery and select the area you want then save it and export to trainz using the ruby tmix plug in.

Satellite images arnt available anymore as google doesn't provide satellite imagery anymore but the map that is available is pretty detailed with individual tracks and junctions and roads.

So, took me about 30 minutes to set up everything, follow some basic instructions and now I have a map on my baseboard. Thank you Mac for responding. So much easier than TransDEM (and yes, I know it doesn't have gradients, but the route I want to do, is pretty flat and I will use artistic licence lol).

BTW, how many maps have you tried to add in Sketchup? I only did one as a test but to save having hundreds of folders with small maps, I was looking at creating a larger one within Sketchup.
