Description
Important Note- This route is currently on hold until the South London & Thameslink route is complete - however I do plan to Add Chatham Main Line to this route in the future (due to it being the missing link between Rochester and Beckenham Junction. However this route has been noticed to be fairly unstable to many people so might be scrapped because of this.

North, South, West London, Thameslink and Kent (Work In Progress Version! )

Route Name in TS16 - "North, South, West London, Thameslink and Kent"

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.


Description

This is one step on from the South London and Thameslink route in that it adds in the North London Line, the West London Line (currently has no scenery but has working track and signals) as well as London St Pancras to Faversham (includes the Sheerness branch too) . This route merges together the following (notes quick drive is very basic at the moment - as scenery is the focus):

Routes
  • London to Brigton
  • South London Network
  • London to Bedford
  • North London Line
  • London to Faversham
  • Sheerness on Sea

Update - Really sorry that it is taking a long time to finish this route, I was really hoping to get it finished sooner but things have gotten in the way (personal life + work). Also this is one route of 3 that i'm working on that the same time as follows:

Route 1: South London & Thameslink - South London Network, South London Network & London to Brighton
Route 2: North, West, South London & Thameslink - Above + North London Line
Route 3: North, West, South London, Thameslink & Kent (this one) - Route 2 + London to Faversham and Sheerness on Sea addon.

Scenery to do:

  • Thameslink Core and Beckenham Junction area - Routes 1, 2 & 3
  • West London Line: Routes 2 & 3

Updates
Updates - (30/01/2016)
  • Scenery complete Kent House to Beckenham Junction / Clock House to New Beckenham (just for show)
  • Fixed directionality issue at Kent House
  • Fixed Clock house signals, speed limits and platform marker
  • Notes - These updates match those in South London & Thameslink route - which will be the first route of the 3 that needs to be finished.

Notes - Please Read!

This upload was to put a version on Steam workshop for scenario writers at least but its not finished as of yet (I am working on it :) )

  • Scenery between London Bridge and Kings Cross Thameslink is not Complete
  • Also Beckenham Junction area scenery not complete. (about 75%)
  • Quick Drive isn't complete (please give me time for this one :) - for me this one can be fairly stressful! )

not as much free time as i've hoped (there have been some updates - although this one is waiting for the others unfortunately)

How is it going?

I've tried many times to do so - it's not that i don't want too, I need to have the time to write it and it's not that easy :), I know you want all the routes together - I do plan that just not at the moment. I know that you are very eager but route merging is easy to do, but very easy to go wrong :) - I've tried to explain in the past but it didn't end well 95% of the time.
theobsessedgamer Mar 23 @ 6:52am 
yeah, thats the problem. If you dont mind, when your ready, maybe you could setup a disscussion on how to merge routes so you dont have to keep talking to me over and over :P
Danny  [author] Mar 23 @ 6:50am 
(I did say it's a bit more than just looking at notepad ++ ) It's easy to do but hard to explain as i mentioned :) )
theobsessedgamer Mar 23 @ 6:47am 
tbh i still dont really understand how to merge 2 routes using notepad++ :(
Danny  [author] Mar 23 @ 5:50am 
They have considered similar routes to have similar points of origin (say if there were another manchester route, they would probably use the liverpool manchester one ;) - (that was just an example though ;) )
theobsessedgamer Mar 23 @ 5:49am 
oh rip lol :( From now on maybe Dovetail should make every UK route have the same origin :P
Danny  [author] Mar 23 @ 5:46am 
I've tried many ways - I know it's possible but it's a lot of work to do so (and would require more than just changing the tile numbers as well - it's also offset upto 700 m :) - I've tried with Stratford on GEML on to MML (before North London Line) - and that was 700m out ;)
Danny  [author] Mar 23 @ 5:45am 
That doesn't work ;) the tile numbers would still be in the same place :P
