Hi all, I'm building a scenario that includes the Sy6dney and Newcastle suburban railway in early 1900s starting from 1930. It a slow process for me due to a disability I have, unable sit at computer for long periods. Guess take a week or so before I finish.
The information I been using I found on a CD called "Track and Signal Diagrams". If you want a copy contact the Sydney Railway Shop or ARHS. The disc has images of almost all stations, sidings and signalling throughout NSW.
I thinking of upload what I done to date at hhttp://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=72995
for any one who like to see what been done and maybe continue building and add their own ideas.
So far the scenario includes the following locations placed that was served by rail between Sydney and Newcastle.
I've completed from Sydney all the way to Newcastle included where all the tunnels go and made foundation work where the line follows the river between Hawkesbury River and Gosford.
All the road, river and creek bridges are included. All the road level crossings that I know of have also been included. If I know of any road bridges that used to be a level crossing, I put in the level crossing.
Done the following work: Sydney lines: City Circle, Bankstown Line, Abattoirs line, Carlingford, line, south to Sutherland and Cronulla line, Enfield, Eveleigh and Chullora, west to Granville, Granville to Yennora, Goods line from Wardell Rd to Mungo Scott flour mills.
Newcastle area: Newcastle to Maitland, Toronto line, Belmont line, parts of Port Waratah, Morpeth line, North coast line from Maitland to as far as Gloucester.
Some locations I been putting roads in to mark where the railways lines are meant to go as can not, or at least I don't know how to show where the railway lines should go when building a scenario. Roads need deleting when scenario is finished or start in a game and use the cheat to have lots of money to bulldoze them as you build the railways.
Industries as far as possible have been placed where they used to be from the 1930s. Some industries that was served by rail only show a name and not what they produced, so I been putting what might have been there.
The NewGRF files I used for the scenario, am I allowed to bundle them in one zip file and put them on here for people to access? Where ever possible the files contains the licence that came with the file when I downloaded them.
The files needed are listed on the "Want to building a scenerio Newcastle Australia" forum.
If interested let me know.
