    Nat and Matt will be hosting next week's Glasgow Cathcart livestream, at 7pm UTC on Railfan TV, and we want to make sure we answer as many questions as we can from you lovely folk at home.

    So, if there are any questions about the route or loco, or any suggestions for things you'd like to see, let us know on this thread and we'll try to cover as much as we can :)

    It's worth checking last night's stream...



    ...so you can see if your question has already been answered!

    Are you using Armstrong powerhouse sounds?

    Since found out using AP Sounds and data provided by AP and Waggonz.

    cheers

    Pink 314
    Seriously though, I'd like to see Shields depot, and a depot run, and also what's the 'livery select' on the 314 for? Alternate Formation like the 465 or something?

    1. Will the passengers be existing or “rush hour models.”
    2. If passengers are old ones will they automatically update to new ones when rush hour drops?
    3. Why are there no kilts?
    4. Why are new maps still being built with no station names?
    5. Can there be a variety of collectible posters rather than 20 identical?

    Did you know that Scotland's railways will be nationalised next year, the Scottish government has announced. The ScotRail franchise run by Abellio will be taken over by the state's operator of last resort when its contract expires in March 2022. ... Never again should people's railway ever be in the hands of the privateers.

    Well, technically Abellio is already (mostly) state owned, by the Dutch state that is ;).

    Suggestion: Make all platforms at Glasgow Central usable on Scenario Planner so we can make the station feel busy and even pretend to have West Coast Mainline services.

    Only one freight service, I know this is a predominantly passenger route but there could be more freight added to keep us freight drivers happy :)

    1: Will Cathcart and the 313 be released on the same day or will the 313 be released later?
    2: Could you still check the "other livery"? That may be a 6 car train.
    3: Was I hearing correctly that TPWS is active now? If so, will TPWS be rolled out on the routes that have TPWS physically?

    That will be in use if you create custom livery in livery editor as allows you to select any you’ve created

    Why aren’t you guys able to make the passenger windows open? I noticed that the class 465 has windows that can be opened by passengers but the feature wasn’t made. I hope this feature can get added to the 313 and 314 as well, but Why can’t this feature be implemented?

    How did you guys manage to get the overhead line equipment (OLE) so accurate? Its a significant upgrade over anything offered in TSW so far.

    With the route being relatively small, did this allow the artists to 'hand pick' the right OLE assets one by one by looking at a cab ride video?

    Hey guys a couple.of.things

    1 do the cameras work at stations for departure or will they ever be put into the game to see along your train

    2
    It seems when you open the doors to the train the bill lights don't flash or work is this something what will be implemented or does this not have this feature

    3 could there possibly be a freight run


    Many thanks

    For a downloadable content train on this route why not make Mk3 coach based Class 318 & 320 for this route at the Same time Class 442 & 455 for BML. That way there's the Mk3 EMU pack.

    One thing I noticed on the stream is that when you apply the brake, the motor audio kicks in. In real life, these units are only fitted with an air brake and do not have any kind or Rheostatic. Is there a physical limit causing this issue or can it be looked into to try and remove the sounds when braking?

    Looks amazing.

    Two audio features that need to be louder / more prominent are 1) bogie run sounds and 2) tread brake rub on the 314. Other than that I was very impressed.

    I'm really curious towards the reasoning behind the fact that routes recently have seen less and less original rolling stock. I'm not neccesarily mad about it or anything but,

    Is it that developing steam asks a lot from the train artists, making them unavailable for other projects?

    Is it that there is simply a shortage of train artists and you can't find any new ones to hire?

    Is it because of something else entirely?

    As said, this is not something I'm mad about or anything, but I am curious about it :).
