Sagami line

Screen dump of a view from the line
A part of the Sagami line (JR East) for the class 35 DMU. The simulation is of a local train from Nishisamukawa to Chigasaki some time back in the 1970s. At that time the branch line between Nishisamukawa and Samukawa was still open for traffic (it was closed in 1984) and the Sagami linewas not electrified (it was electrified 1989--1991). The line goes through a beautiful agricultural landscape, very different from the densly built areea that surrounds the line nowadays. Well done route with nice graphic objects and realistic switches.

Known problems:
In OpenBVE there are problems with non-transparency in some graphic objects.

It can be fixed by downloading the file archive JNR-Sagami-O.rar that contains graphic objects adapted for OpenBVE. Unpack and place the unpaced directory JNR-Sagami-O in the directory Railway/Object (should they exist, overwrite present files with the same name).
