Epping-Ongar Railway

General discussions

Moderator: senjer

Do you want to be able to run tube trains on the line to Ongar again?

Yes, from Epping to Ongar, so occiasional tube trains, or 'full-tube-service' are possibilities.

Yes, but only halfway; no further then North Weald.

No, I'd rather have it un-electrified as is exists in reality.

Well, at least me, I can’t find the 1962 stock in the 3D warehouse, neither the ‘58 nor the ‘38

Here is the closest model, the 1938 Tube Stock, just convert to 1962 Tube Stock (and intermediate coaches too):

This one needs a lot of work. Seems to be just a basic shape with textures

That '38 stock is indeed not usable.
If someone wants to make a better one..... After all; the Epping-Onger railway will get one (the nr6 or the nr8) from the Island Line, which they intend to use for passenger service (under battery power).

I think the mk1 an mk2 coaches are a better priority as we already have the class 47 to haul them

There are coaches on Sketchup.... I tried working on this one, but it turned out this one is a nightmare to work with (after converting to Milkshape, the 3D model explodes with every attempt to work on it); https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/ ... K3-Carrage.
So I gave up on that one, and just used the Dutch coaches we already have in the sim (ICF and ICR).

i hope you have taken the initiative to change the colour from yellow to a more traditional british grey or blue colour? if that isnt possible well have to cope with whats available. no worries in that case. at least we have the 47

1923 or 1938 LU stock would be awesome in the sim, doing heritage runs in the City of Thames. With 38 it's also possible to do the now extinct 483 Class from the Isle of Wight.

Looked at Mk1 and Mk2 coaches at 3D Warehouse and all of which aren’t detailed, so it’s either built them from scratch or modify the ICF coaches (e.g make it smaller to fit within the British loading gauge, repaint to BR Blue & Grey, etc). The same can’t be said for the 1938 / 1962 Tube Stock.

Compromises might be necessary at this stage.

But today I finally managed to adapt some object I recieved a while ago for the simulator (from PacerLover23); a few Brittish stationbuildings (the texture-mappings did not survive the transfer, so I had to re-do that. Few hours later..... the result looks good).

I just replaced the simulator's default station buildings (same type I used in Rijndam at several trainstations) of North Weald and Ongar with the new objects.
Here's Ongar:

Nice, So my buildings did work, Sorry about the texture mapping problem it seem somthing to do with sketchup 2012
