The attention to realism at Taunton and Watchett is exceptional, I assume you know the area well?

Thanks! Yes, I do.

I had forgotten about the WSR - I can show screenshots of that!

Here's where the WSR joins the Bristol/London-Penzance mainline, and technically is the start of our journey, although trains rarely run from here to Minehead (any more!). The line to the right is towards Taunton, the bottom towards Tiverton Parkway, the top left into Norton Fitzwarren station (currently being rebuilt by the WSR) and on towards Minehead and the bottom left is now a siding (formerly the Devon & Somerset Railway to Barnstaple). The new triangle junction allows trains to reserve back onto the WSR.

Here we have Bishops Lydeard station, the official start of the WSR. Our locomotive is taking on water before running the length of the station to back onto the carriages before departing on our journey towards Minehead.

After passing through Crowcombe and Stogumber (pretty standard stations) we reach Williton.

Our journey reaches it's end at Minehead. The newly-constructed turntable sits next to the main platform and the engine sheds.

Looks Nice, I would recommend using UKRS2 though.

I am? I think it is the most updated version that this Chill's Patchpack can handle.

Your using original UKRS, not UKRS2. I am guessing the Patchpack can't handle UKRS2.

Oh well. The South-West only really uses a handful of trains anyway, so I think I have everything covered. People may say that I don't have the correct steam engines etc., but oh well.

Here's the map. It's progressing well, and there's a complete double tracks between Taunton and Totnes now. Certain places (Taunton, Exeter, Newton Abbot, Torquay, Plymouth) have had much more attention paid to them.

Ok, let's continue with the steam railway theme (it so happens that they are the easiest to complete!). The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway, more specifically.

Here, our train arrives at Paignton, so we can board and travel towards Kingswear. The adjacent mainline station currently supports a service to Newton Abbot, but will eventually mirror services to elsewhere.

I think he is using a rather old version of the Surburban Stations set.

IIRC, I had to go back a few versions so I could get half-platforms or half-overpasses or something like that.

I'm working on this again. Here's the (slow) progress:

[EDIT] May as well avoid the triple post. Here's Penzance - a very FGW-centric place. The focus of this shot is Long Rock TMD where FGW store stock, and Penzance station. We see an HST speed away from the station as it heads for London Paddington, whilst another loads in the station. A regional stopping service is also arriving at the station.

Bite me, triple post. Does anyone know - or have any information on - the main freight routes in this part of the country? I want to try and recreate them semi-realistically..

Off the top of my head you tend to get the occasional clay train, down that way I could take a look into it at work tomorrow if you want??

Yeah, that'd be great! Thanks. I can easily substitute clay for sand ingame, as that is probably the closest industry (it making a big hole in the ground, and all.
