Been a few changes made to the Waypoint Signals.

Much thanks to Quast65 teaching me the code, I made a new set called Auz Fake Signals.

AUZ FAKE SIGNALS
============

These are Fake Signals.

They do not control trains.

They are platform tiles and can be part of other platforms. Trains will stop at these platforms if your train is set to stop all stations.

When a train moves on to the tile the signal will clear and when train passes the tile the signal will return to stop.

However if you use Path Signals ahead of these Fake Signals all fake signals will clear to green and return to red as your train pases them.

This diagram shows 3 lines. The far left using Path Signals and no fake signals.

Next 2 show using both path signals and Fake Signals.

If you replace the Path Signals with Block Signals .. the Fake Signals will not clear until the train has entered the tile that Fake Signal is on.

I have not tested with Entry, Exit and Combo signals yet.

Intend to make several different types of these Fake Signals.

The signals on Gantries at the moment are not included with this set yet. I hope to add them when I get the others finished.

Would you like to test them and see what you think?

Added the Signal Gantry Signals Waypoints and some signal boxes to the Fake Signals.

The small signal boxes with a signal you would often see to protect Level Crossings.

1st track using Block Signals .. the signal at signal box does not clear till train enters that tile.
2nd track using Path Signals, the signal will clear as soon as it passes the first Path Signal
and as can see by the 3rd track the signal returns to stop after all the train has passed it.

Here is the updated AuzFakeSignals with the WayPoints and Signal Boxes

Update to Auz Fake Signals.

Added a few more Lower Quadrant Signals and also added some Upper Quadrant Signals.

Will see what shunting signals, point indicators and clearance posts I can do. Some will be Waypoints.

Here the latest version.

I made up some Suburban Platforms.
Attachment:
Suburban Platforms.png
Suburban Platforms.png [ 35.13 KiB | Viewed 239 times ]

These are based on are several Suburban stations in the Newcastle Area in New South Wales Australia ..

these being Island Platforms: Booragul, Kotara, Warabrook, Hexham, and High Street.

and Single Sided Platforms: Cockle Creek, Sandgate and Taroo.

They are all unattended Stations. Do not have toilets or waiting rooms. Just a simple awning not much bigger then a bus shelter with just enough room for one seat and space for people to stand.

Most of them only have room for a 4 car DMU or EMU and some only enough room for a 2 car DMU.

I placed these with the Fake Signal set for now.

If like to try here the that file. Have not added any more Fake Signals since last issue.

You will find these platforms under "City Platforms Bitumen Surface".

Still need to do the stairs reverse directions.

Hope to make some for the other City Platforms too.

They have only be done for the City Bitumen platforms so far.

Intend to make some as Waypoints so can either use along as Waypoints or join the footbridges from the Single Sided Platforms and the island Platforms.

Here the updates file.

Added a few more footbridge combinations to the Suburban Set.

Concentrating on the Island Platforms for now.

The footbridges that cross railway lines where there is no platforms are Waypoints. It you want to only cross tracks with no platforms need to use to sets of waypoints as they only have the stairs one end.

There is a few more footbridges I intend to make for the island platforms .. At the moment at the top of stairs they go both directions .. intend to make some to go only one direction.

Anyway have a play and see what you think.

Had an outing today for a change .. was going to go train riding to Muswellbrook, but the service was replaced by buses, so I visited a few suburban stations to get some photos and see what I can add to the Suburban Stations I been doing past few days.

Discovered that the awnings I did on the Single Sided platforms are sloped the wrong way so will need to do them again.

And some of the stations I visited today has given me some more ideas.

I visited Fassifern,

Awaba

and Cockle Creek.

The awnings at these locations are longer then other places I visited and I be able to get some ideas here for some non-track stations as well.

Last time I visited Awaba and Cockle Creek was back in the 1970s and all the original buildings and majority of the sidings been removed.

Awaba still has the old Jib Crane there, but goods platforms, sidings and sheds are all gone. Wanted to get photos of the Crane, but started to rain so I jumped on a train and started to make my way home. Hope to visit Awaba again soon and get photos of the old crane and see if I can make one for the game.

That Bunnings up at Cockle Creek, plus the new roundabout and landscaping, has really transformed the area!

If I get a chance, I'll see if I can throw up a shot of Neath station. Obviously it's unused these days but I think it's cool that they've left the signs up.

The last time I got off a train at Cockle Creek was at the old platforms when in the early 1970s they ran a steam excursion behind a Garrett from Newcastle and it terminated at the old platforms and used the old bridge to run around its train.

The old platforms at Cockle Creek and pylons to the old bridge across Cockle Creek are still there. Much of the old platforms is buried under dirt but can still see some of the brick work.

Been hunting for old photos of some of the smaller railway stations in the area but not easy to find some places. Usually when do find a photo of the smaller stations there is a train in the way blocking the view to the platforms and buildings.

Found some photos of railway stations at these 2 sites.

NSWrail.net at http://www.nswrail.net/

When There Were Stations at http://www.stationspast.net/

Railways and Railway Stations at https://www.flickr.com/photos/state-rec ... 064652134/

If you know of any other sites with NSW and other States that have photos of railway stations and infrastructure please let me know.
