Post  rufuskins on Wed 27 Feb 2013, 9:40 pm

Route Name = Black Country Version 1



Route Author = Don Hinton

Route Location = West Midlands

Route Mileage = 650

Route Era = late 1950s to mid 1960s

Route Source = from UKTrainSim CD ordering (current cost is £4.80 which includes one month’s premium UKTS membership)

Additional files required to be installed = None.

Route Description =
An MSTS Mini Route on DVD coming complete with a number of activities and the relevant stock to run those activities
"Black Country 1 covers an area from Birmingham in the south to Standon Bridge and Barlaston in the north, and includes the northern part of the South Staffordshire line to Wychnor sidings the last station being Barton & Walton. It also includes Castle Bromwich, Water Orton, and Tamworth together with 17 collieries, 5 Power Stations, 2 main Steelworks, 3 oil terminals and over 900 sidings.
All the connecting branch lines with over 100 stations belonging to the LNWR, GWR and Midland railway companies with about 650 miles of track should ensure plenty of scope for activities.
Based on the lines available in the late 50's to mid 60's, some track work has had to be omitted due to how MSTS operates; a few stations being reopened to improve activities are included in the route.
Parts of it are semi fictional as not all the track plans were available and not many photographs of some parts of the area could be found."

It should be noted that additional activities can be found on UKTS, together with relevant stock.
