    I'm opening a thread here to collect any queries/bugs on the route as well as to anounce any updates/new scenarios/bugfixes etc.

    This route is set in Britain at the end of the steam era and the beginning of the diesels. It covers the ECML from Kings Cross up to York, and the Cambridge main line from the junction with the ECML at Hitchin through Cambridge up to Ely. It also has the freight-only line between St Ives and Ely; the passenger line from Huntingdon East via St Ives to Cambridge and the route out to Newmarket. With v5.5 it also covers two work-in-progress sections:

    · the line between Peterborough East and Ely
    · the line from Cambridge to Mildenhall.

    At present about 350+ route miles - with a mixture of main line, some classic branch line and some industrial mileage. 1,694 track miles.
    The line covers 100+ stations - ranging from the tiny branch halts through the 1.5 miles of Cambridge station to the congested environs of Kings Cross, Peterborough, York and Top Shed.

    The route website is here: https://sites.google.com/site/cambridgelinesrailworks/home. This contains a route description, pictures, downloads etc. I started the route in 2009 and have worked on it ever since.

    As well as the route there are also a few of the loco enhancement packs that I created to help populate the route in a more realistic manner - this includes some 'missing' locos like the J19, J69 and D16.

    The route is big and uses a metric s**t-ton of stuff - I have tried to keep requirements down but it is a bit of a beast! Also quite pretty, very historically accurate and generally smashing ;-). I am currently upgrading grass and trees...

    This sounds excellent, would need better cpu to run though.

    What are you currently running? It'll run on an i5 with gfx turned down. If you have i7 or above then it will be ok (depending on gfx card etc etc).
