South London to Brighton

Notes - Also if you decide to rate down this route, you are perfectly entitled too of course, but I do ask though if you could say why you don't like it, as I welcome any constructive critism. (PS - I don't bite, if you say you don't like the route :) )

Notes - I can't merge in GEML or ECML South to any of these routes, this is due to both of these routes having a different stating point to these routes, ECML is around Stevenage, GEML is around Colchester, while North London Line, London to Bedford, London to Faversham, South London Network and London to Brighton is at Swanley.


South London Network -
London to Brighton -

Notes - LED Signal Pack - Comes with *London to Brighton*, *South London Network*, Portsmouth Direct (original not Waterloo), WCML North, WCML Over Shap, and I think a couple of others. (so you'll probably have this anyway :) )

Modellers Pack (I don't think it was really used - couple of bits) - comes with one of Doncaster Works, Falmouth, Portsmouth Direct (original), Northeast Corridor (original), Horseshoe Curve, Woodhead, Trains Vs Zombies 2, Western Lines of Scotland, WCML Over Shap, WCML North OR Pietmaritzburg to Ladysmith. (You'd only need one of those routes.)

This is not an official route, this is something that I have done in my own time to combine the two routes, and also includes the extra little sections of Hove and Reigate.

For other things that I have done in my own time, I also have a facebook page with pictures from Scenarios and other routes that i've looked at.

Notes: After a few comments that i've seen, I have decided that I'm not going to give permission for anyone to submit changes for this route (if you merge the routes yourselves I have no say of course), you can of course make changes to your own copy of the route as a personal route, but I have decided that for over reasons and that I would prefer that there weren't about 20 copies of the same route with minor changes on workshop.

Ok Cheers Danny

I would love too but in my case I don't think i would have any time to do so - I believe i have seen someone building it though (they won't have any interest in joining it to my routes however), Greatbritishrailworks or something like that?

Hey Danny, Hope you and your family are well? Would you be interested in building the East coastway Route or Marshlink?

your work is amazing i bought one of the routes off steam just so i could try this out:) i want to route build myself but not very good, i'm trying to do a fictional route based on the route from sheffield to leeds via rotherham central doncaster wakefield wesgate
Danny  [author] Jun 17 @ 3:44pm 
That's good to hear, and thanks for letting me know :)
Maxtraindriver Jun 17 @ 3:36pm 
Thanks. I deleted it from the build list, and re subscribed to it, and the tracks and signals are back.
Danny  [author] Jun 17 @ 1:10pm 
if you go to build, then find the route and press delete on it? That might force it to be updated perhaps?

(Unfortunately I think this might be a steam issue more than anything (It has happened to other people - the route works, it hasn't been updated for a few years and people have made scenarios for it :) )
Maxtraindriver Jun 17 @ 12:55pm 
I tried that, and when I went to check my routes after I unsubscribed to the South London to Brighton route it was still there on the list.
Danny  [author] Jun 17 @ 12:42pm 
Odd, have you tried unsubscribing, then resubscribing, and then going to drive, followed by the workshop tab (sometimes the last bit is needed to install correctly) - it does sound like a corrupt workshop download however.
Maxtraindriver Jun 17 @ 12:33pm 
I deleted both routes (South London Network and South London to Brighton), plus the UK LED Signal DLCs, and reinstalled them, and still no signals and tracks don't seem to load properly on the South London to Brighton route. Every other route including the London to Brighton one is fine.
