    A Wayside Works Beyer "Ilfracombe Goods" 0-6-0 tendered steam locomotive, in plain black livery, hauls coal wagons from Radstock to Frome during a Demonstration Goods run on Alternative North Somerset Railway Steam Workshop route. One climb proved quite a challenge. As great a challenge was a long decline, the loco having no train brake, thus relying on its handbrake (and at one point putting the reverser in reverse and cranking up the regulator. Only after the fact did I recall that I might have utilized the brake van:

    All these are from early in the (relatively short) run. I grabbed a number of captures beyond this point. All were found wanting, and unceremoniously deleted.

    A DT Johnson 4-4-4T in North Stafffordshire Railway livery, hauling a rake of Wayside Works NSR carriages, is seen departing Carlisle Station, just prior to closing cylinder drain cocks on a snowy winter morn. (Settle to Carlisle DTG route.)

    Strange as it might seem, I find myself viewing this image, full-screen, for minutes at a time. It affects me somehow, as no other TS capture of mine has, nice as some of them are. That said, I readily admit to a certain positive bias towards it.

    Continuing my exploration of long-neglected TSC routes, today I revisited Hamilton Branch Line Steam Workshop route. A fictional British line, I choose to think of it as being in Scotland, there being a Hamilton there. That being the case, what better to run on it than the CW CR123, seen in Caledonian Dark Blue livery. It pulls three CR carriages on a stopping service that runs the length of the line, from Hamilton to Walton, a roughly forty-five minute excursion including station stops.

    This image was captured early in the run:
    [​IMG]
    Not long after the above, I realized I was growing tired of midday runs under bright skies. Remaining images are from the restarted run, set to begin at 0615 under cloudy skies, which I drove to completion:

    To be continued . . .

    Due to various reasons I got delayed again and no new shots this week. So it's all from the pool.
    Happier with this than last week's, hope you enjoy it, too :)

    More captures from a recent stopping passenger run from Hamilton to Walton on Hamilton Branch Line, a fictitious British Steam Workshop route. Motive power is the (CW) Caledonian Railway 123, in CR Dark Blue livery, a singleton 4-2-2 tendered steam loco. It pulls three CR coaches. The CR123 is one of two CW locos offered free of charge. According to its sales page, it will eventually be updated to SimNation Locomotion 2.0 scripting, yet remain a free download.

    CR123 was preserved by the LMS. It is I believe in the Glasgow Museum of Transport. In the 1960s it was used on some special Trains in CR livery being based at St. Rollox works (later called Springburn Works), before going into the Museum.

    Route: Dresden- Leipzig Train: IC2, DB BR 101, CD 380.
    A unique site in Germany. A czech locomotive pulling an eurocity from Leipzig from Prague.

    I hadn't planned to take advantage of the ongoing (as of 21 Sep 2022) Caledonia Works sale, thinking to hold out until SimNation Locomotion 2.0 scripting appears. Then I read that GAD's Purbeck route is being replaced by Dorset Coast. While route requirements are unchanged, Dorset has a few new scenario requirements, one being the SR U class 2-6-0. Assuming this to refer to the CW U class, I bought it yesterday afternoon. Here it is, during its maiden QD voyage on GAD's West of England Mainline.

    Unlike with previous recent runs, the early daylight setting worked against me here. I captured few images, this being the best of them. First impressions? Its sound set, supplied by SteamSoundsSupreme, recorded from SR 1638, is impressive. While driving, it felt and sounded powerful. At higher speeds, going over rough stretches of track, cab shake can become suitably intense. As with a number of recent CW loco releases, user manipulation of the Brake Ejector is required, even in F4-HUD mode. More than this I can not say until I've spent more time behind the reverser.

    Yet another visit to a long neglected Steam Workshop route, the short but scenically pleasing Yorkshire Dales Railway. The train is powered by a freeware Wayside Works Manning Wardle H class 0-4-0ST in Cambrian Lined Black, a good match for the route. It hauls a string of GWR passenger carriages:

    Bonus image; The CW SR U Class, now in SR Maunsell Green, hauling a CW SR van and a string of MT/SSS Pullman Coaches. It is again seen on GAD West of England Mainline freeware route:

    I intended to do a complete run from Exeter to Axminster. To my surprise, I soon found myself missing early daylight lighting, so restarted the session with start-time set to 0615 (and a weathered BR Black U).

    I have been waiting in anticipation for the release of the Hope Valley extension to the JT MML and OMG it certainly has not disappointed.
    The detail and content is absolutely stunning. :love::love::love:

    A series of captures from a recent early daylight GAD West of England Mainline passenger run headed by a newly acquired CW SR U class 2-6-0 tendered steam loco, seen in weathered BR Black. Conceived as an Express excursion, it ended up as a semi stopper, stopping at those stations large enough to comfortably fit the entire train:
