Hello all, I've done a little more on the electrified section of the Drodditch Line:

2 477s pass at Shugey:

My new attempts at recreating the southern terminus at Toppenham Green:

Hi all,
I've done a bit more to the Drodditch Line:
Image
A little map of the electrified section. The bit from Westfield to Caswell Park is an existing diesel line, which will be electrified up to Caswell Park. Ginton and Caswell Park stations already exist as part of the diesel line. The line to George's wood, and all the smaller stations are being built. The line from Westfield to Toppenham Green/Birchfield is already in place

Image
A 477 terminates at Westfield, the extension section not having been built yet...

Image
The early stages of the extension line electrification are underway. Here we see the site of Honbury station:

Image
The grassy verge just past Honbury

Image
Image
The line's name-giver - The disused Drodditch station

Drodditch sounds awfully like the town i live in 'Redditch' is it based on the Cross City line or the Midlands?

It's not intentionally based around the X-city line (but does comprise of a short electrified section and a few diesel lines around a big city). I did start it off as set in the West Midlands (my inspiration was the Snow Hill lines) but it doesn't really have a definite region anymore. I tried to keep the towns 'Midlands-sounding' eg "Drodditch", "Fimbar & Hartlington", "Shugley" and "Solebridge Green". Do they sound Midlands-y enough to you?

Shugley sound simular to Rugley Trent Valley while Fimbar & Hartlington sounds like the station Hayes & Harlington on the GWML which is in London.

Hi all, after a while, I've done some more on the Drodditch Line, whilst I wait for inspiration for Wendsey aha!

It's a dull wet weekend, and the line is closed for engineering.
Mullcorn station is now buried underneath a shopping centre:
Image

Still pretty bare - haven't yet added platform furniture:
Image

A gloomy day just east of Westfield, looking towards Honbury:
Image

South Drodditch:

Hi all, I am continuing with the Drodditch line, just extremely slowly! Instead of producing new sections though, I've been going back and tweaking some of the dodgier existing sections:

Westfield has been edited to make it a little less 'Bright and plastic' looking. I've given it new platforms, furniture and the Drodditch platforms have more realistic OHLE:
Image

Fimbar & Hartlington has also recieved some platform updates:
Image

Image

I've also started to update Jakestown, but haven't got any pictures of that yet. Will post some soon.

Let me know what you guys think, comments are always welcome :)

Thanks, It probably will get uploaded once it's finished, but that's a long way away at the moment. I'll try and upload it for 2009sp4 and above.

Hi all, I've been doing a little more on the Melbridge - Tristanwood section:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


And a 478 approaches Birchfield:

Image

Image


And I've redesigned the junction at Melbridge, where the line to Birchfield (bottom) splits from the line to Toppenham Green (right)

Image


What do you guys think so far?

Cheers,
