(Reason for patch - the route is listed as final and can't be updated any further
Updated - 26/05/2019

Fixes:
  • Replaced 95% of Level Crossings with Double Barriers (one between Teynham and Faversham remained the same)
  • Replaced all (probably) Kuju Gantries with better ones (my own opinion)
  • Moved Signal on track at Ebbsfleet
  • Fixed Missing Track issue near the tunnel at Ebbsfleet.
  • Minor Terrain Issue around Purfleet
  • Replaced a few older cars
  • Added extra Pylons at Ebbsfleet (Tall Electric ones)

2016 - Description

Route Name = London Victoria + St Pancras to Faversham 2016

This route merges Chatham Main Line to London to Faversham and the Sheerness on Sea Branch routes, this version is set in 2016 so has the new stations at Rochester, updates to Gravesend, a bay platform at Battersea P2 instead of two through lines, a bay platform at Rainham station as well as upto date LED signals between Longfield and Sittingbourne.

Notes - Sheerness on Sea Branch Line
This route will work regardless if you have this route or not have it, this branch line uses scenery from London to Faversham, so if you don't have this route, you won't be missing tracks but will only be missing stations on the sheerness branch and a couple of bridges (and of course the 466 too). (the tracks used are from Chatham Main Line to be consistent across the route. )

For those that want to have the Older Rochester / Gravesend and Rainham stations present there is this version set in 2012 Click Here for More

Route Requirements


Notes: Gravesend Clutter isn't finished (Had to focus on quick drive)
Some quick drives may not work

  • Quick Drive from Victoria / St Pancras to Faversham / Sheerness (with AI on 3rd rail sections)
  • Replaced All London to Faversham track with Chatham Mainline track texture
  • Replaced all roads to include new cars
  • Replaced all "Kuju" platform lofts to newer texture (where possible)
  • Replaced Whistle Signs with Track Linked ones
  • Fixed various platform lofts that were broken
  • Fixed AWS Ramp issues at Sheerness / Sittingbourne "Triange"
  • Replaced all Pylons with wired versions
  • Retained Old Rochester Intact, as well as old Rainham and Gravesend
  • Added missing bridge at Queenborough + Adjusted surrounding scenery
  • Added pylons to sheerness branch area
  • New Gravesend (as much as i can - still has old footbridge)
  • New Rochester (as in Chatham Mainline)
  • 2016 signalling between Rochester / Strood and Sittingbourne
  • Removed sidings from Queenborough Area (as no longer there )
  • Added lots of Grass / Weeds to disused siding
  • Removed P1 at Battersea Park and Extended P3 (although a bit pointless for this route)
  • 1.2 Fixed Floating Buffers at Sheerness (and replaced a couple of Cars)
  • 1.2 Added OSS at Sheerness on Sea platforms
  • 1.2 Fixed Floating 3rd Rail between Rochester and Sole Street
  • 1.2 Floating 3rd Rail at Newington (I think?)
  • 1.2 Speed issue between Rainham and Newington
  • 1.3 Added Second barrier to Rainham Crossing (Both Rainhams!)
  • 1.3 Added Second Barrier to Gillingham Crossing
  • 1.3 Removed second - 6 Car Stop sign at Gravesend
  • 1.3 Fixed 3rd Rail Issues East of Gravesend
  • 1.3 Fixed AI at Faversham on Quickdrive (Southbound) heading into wrong portal
  • 1.3 Fixed Directionality Issue at Gravesend P2
  • 1.3 Added Consts Spawn Point at Rainham P0 (60% chance of seeing something - Southbound)

    Also noted - Quick Drive routing issues where it was crossing over to the track many times from St Pancras - but could reproduce this. (Changing points were mentioned - but you can't change points in quick drive - unless manual )

Bug Fixing
Both Routes

  • Improved Beckenham Junction area (Waitrose) - not the best but removed horrible warehouse and replaced with another warehouse - hopefully better.
  • Added Portal After Ebbsfleet area.
  • Fixed Quick Drive issue into Victoria
  • Fixed Red Light Issue Exiting Victoria to Faversham
  • Removed AI heading into Faversham on Quickdrive (Northbound)
  • Added more carriage sidings AI to quickdrives (where possible)
  • Removed Two AWS ramps for speed changes on crossovers
  • Fixed strange issue with Points around Sheerness
  • Added Church to Chatham Area near station
  • Fixed strange tunnel issue North of Dagenham Area
  • Other minor fixes that I've forgotten about (I only wrong this list near the end)


Notes - Can't add Southern or other rolling stock to AI because of how it is set up - if i add the route to the Southern / FCC stock it will appear everywhere), the Javelin is similar in that it would also appear in the wrong places.

2016 -

  • Finished Gravesend area (can't fix the footbridge unfortunately)
  • Levelled Terrain north of Rochester

Fair enough! :steamhappy: The idea was that some might work. But something that makes me curious is whether all Faversham scenarios would work. I guess they might need the 2012 route since it uses the old Rochester.

I mean some scenarios with AI around New Beckenham may not work either ;) (The track was changed slightly to join up Catford Bridge to the route to make it usable in the newer version of this route :) )

Fun trivia I discovered (Danny already knows this, but fun to share): the Workshop ID for this item appears in the Route Properties for the Dover/Ramsgate route. There is therefore a possibility that any scenarios made for this route may automatically work with the Dover/Ramsgate route. After subscribing to a scenario, go to the Workshop folder and find the item (a numbered folder matching the Workshop item in the 24010 folder) and open it to the Scenarios folder, then pluck it into the 00000101 Scenarios folder instead. Unsubscribe (to prevent two scenarios with the same ID loading in). Load the game and it should appear under Dover/Ramsgate, and you can try this out. :steamhappy:

Note that it will appear as an "Official" scenario this way since it was not added the normal way for Workshop scenarios.

That said, any scenarios including the part between Strood and St. Pancras will not work on the payware because it's not included. So...don't move those. :steamhappy:

@Danny That's good, I think the Chatham & Medway addon included the original Chatham Mainline although I don't know for certain.
Danny  [author] Mar 28, 2023 @ 1:20am 
It should do - the Medway route needs the original route too :) (which was included if I'm not mistaken, even the separate route too? )
danieltindall Mar 27, 2023 @ 3:02pm 
Would it work with the Chatham & Medway Valley route or only with the original Chatham Mainline?
