Next update - Estimate: July/August 2016

_________________________

To download.  Click the version v10g link.  You will be transferred to the download site.

Locate the Box: “North Lincolnshire...” (etc)

Right click the box.

Left click on “Download”

IMPORTANT ADVICE:

Download ONLY from one of the sites listed above.  They’re FREE, so there is no advantage going to sites that I don’t know about, and which may not be all they seem!

 

What you need for this to work!

Train Simulator 2016 .... You’ll need to purchase a copy of the commercial programme “Train Simulator 2016” if you don’t have it already.  Link to the Railworks site here.

The North Lincolnshire file.  It is free.  Download as above. 

You will need the “AP_Station Assets” file.

Nothing else is necessary.

 

Options:

For the route: I strongly recommend that you download various boats from the UKTrainSim.com website, mainly those by Captain Bazza.  Although these are not necessary, and only form scenery, they do add a great deal of authenticity.  Particularly the ferry “Ryde” which is a good match for the New Holland-Hull ferries. 

Also, download the free goods wagons from UKTrainSims, which are required in some of the scenarios I have included.  http://www.uktrainsim.com/freewarepacks/index.php?p=ThePacks&pack_id=UKWagons1#vh

I have used one or two assets from the Train Simulator Market Place offering of Platform Clutter: http://www.railsimulator.com/product/222667-Platform+Clutter+Scenery+Pack, the most “important” being for the hands of a few of the smaller station clocks.  Whether you buy this is entirely your choice, it really won’t make much difference.

Some of the scenarios use locomotives downloaded (to be paid for) from the Train Simulator site http://train-simulator.com/, JustTrains http://www.justtrains.net/ or Digital Traction http://digitaltraction.co.uk/mainsite/.  Alternatively, make up your own scenarios using whatever locos and rolling stock you have.

I recommend that, if at all possible, you set the graphics master detail to “highest.”  If you don’t, then you may not see some of the assets at all, whilst you do see others.

 

Hallo,

After someone drew my attention to your N-Lincolnshire route I downloaded it with the idea to delete it again should it turn out to be just another bad attempt to build a route.

However, ever since I have been marvelling at what you did.

Such a love of details, almost 100% perfection make this the best route I have (and I have over 150), be it freeware or payware.

I am still amazed and cannot stop playing this masterpiece.

Thanks a lot for all the time and work you must have put into it.

Best regards, A M (Germany)

Latest News

What is updated in the latest update since the last (November 2015) update?

The entire East Lincolnshire Railway (Grimsby to Boston) is now scened up, and the line extended from Eastville all the way to Boston.  SOME work has been done on the Louth Mablethorpe Willoughby Branch (but far from finished), a little on the New Line, signalling and improving of the lines just east of Grimsby Town station, and a number of minor changes elsewhere on the system.

I very strongly recommend buying the Digital Traction LNER twinset carriages, as these are a dead ringer for the carriages used on the Louth to Bardney (and the Horncastle) Branch.  http://digitaltraction.co.uk/mainsite/products/lner-twinset-articulated-coaches/  I have used these in several scenarios for the line.

Improvements to the NEXT update will include ....

Redesign of Grimsby Town Station and Station Roof

Wooden wharfs

ABM Maltkiln at Louth redesigned and textured accurately

Redesign to Firsby Station

Various new assets designed for the route

Skegness-Firsby Branch “scened up.”

Louth-Mablethorpe-Willoughby Branch fully scened up.

Brigg Station revamped, with an overall roof and suitable wooden panels on the platform, plus other minor improvements.

 

 

New! Timetables from 1963-4

The site now includes timetables from 1963-4 that cover trains on the routes.  So, if you like making your own scenarios for the end of the steam period/start of the diesel period, you can use the timetables in use at the time.  All the routes are included that were in operation at that time and are listed under their table number in the index shown on the left-hand navigation bar of this site....

45 Boston, Firsby, Willoughby, Alford, Louth, Grimsby, Cleethorpes

47 Firsby to Skegness

48 Willoughby to Mablethorpe

49 Firsby, Coningsby, Woodhall Junction, Bardney

53 Market Rasen, Barnetby, Grimsby, Cleethorpes

58 New Holland, Grimsby, Cleethorpes

59 New Holland to Barton-on-Humber

60 New Holland to Immingham

63 Gainsborough, Barnetby, Grimsby, Cleethorpes

64 Scunthorpe, Barnetby, Grimsby, Cleethorpes

Please note that there are no timetables for the following lines as they had closed to passengers by 1963:

Winteringham to Barton (Never opened)

Scunthorpe to Whitton (Closed to passengers 1925)

Firsby to Spilsby (Closed to passengers 1939)

Louth to Bardney (Closed to passengers 1951)
