Sagami line

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
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.

Somerset & Dorset

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
A part of the old Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway in southern England. This local train is hauled by a steam engine and goes from Shillingstone to Templecombe (south of Bristol). The correct engine for this train is a Bullied Pacific class West Country steam engine, but in lack of such an engine a class J36 steam engine is used. The railroad, stations and the beautiful landscape is well done. The simulation intends to replicate the route as it looked like in the 1960s. The traffic at this and some other lines ended March 7 1966 after have being trafficed since August 31 1863.

Known problems:
In OpenBVE there are problem with non-transparency in a number of graphic objects.

It can be fixed by downloading the file archive somdor_OpenBVE_objects.rar containing graphic objects adapted for OpenBVE. Unpack and place those graphic objects in the directory Railway\Object\somdor (overwrite present files).

History, pictures and descriptions are also available at this web site
Misc.:
Works with OpenBVE if adapted graphic objects are downloaded and used instead of the original objects. See the text above.

It is not possible to adhere to the time table in this simulation:

The engine class J36 used is a steam engin for freight trains from the 19th century with a maximum allowed speed of 48 km/h.

The time table is based on use of the Bullied Pacific class West Country steam engine. The engine class was built in the 1950s for express trains and had a maximum allowable speed of probably, at least, 150 km/h. At the simulated route, passenger trains were hauled by that angine class in speeds up to 90 km/h. However, no class West Country engine is available for BVE.
