looks so good!

X-1 would sometimes make it as far as Brattleboro to switch customers on the north side of town

Hello to all,

Two additional templates have been done. Both are for the X-1 local South of BF. The first is a Round trip from BF to Putney and the second is one from BF to the Northern part of Brattleboro, as mentioned by Christopher. Thanks Chris for the info! Each path has its own template because of reverse paths. It will be important that once reaching their southern end, proceed past the reverse point before going back to BF. At Putney, it will take some complex moves to reverse your train since there is no runaround track nearby Putney. The images shown are from the X-1 local to Putney and most of the images are located at Putney during switching and reversing your train simultaneously. Unfortunately, OR crashed during taking screenshots and toggling to my photo editor to save my shots.The last shot has been taken after the last setout before final assembly and returning back to BF,

Those pictures sure look great!

I believe those Bellows Falls customers on the south side of the tunnel would have been switched by the Bellows Falls switcher.

Hello to all,

Work is progressing well and the number of templates has grown to 15 templates. I have decided to roll back the timeframe to the original 1956 year. There are only two freeware downloads. They are Paul's CV Steam engines and the CN C-liners in TS. With the exception of one, I have tried to make the templates as they were in 1956, Traffic trains are those seen in BM timetables with their exact or approximate timing.

The seven Switcher templates are now done and covers BF, Brattleboro and WRJ (5).

I have created a template for the CV 701 steam loco. the CV 74 template (based on train 74 seen in one BM timetable) simply carries its load from WRJ (Lv 14h45) straight to Brattleboro. Once in Brattleboro, the train must swap the engines from steam to the C-Liner diesels since the tracks south of Brattleboro cannot support the steam locos, according to Paul's comments in TS. One NB CV steam train (train 75, based again on the same BM timetable) leaves Brattleboro (14h25) straight to WRJ and is part of the traffic on that one.

However I have one problem starting the activity. It is not the template itself but the steam locomotive. See the image below.

CV 701 Steam by Denis Gionet, sur Flickr

At start and seen here in red, the coal and water levels are at zero.

It is my first time operating a steam engine in OR. I have done some searching in the forum and in the OR manual trying to find a way to load both fuel levels but found nothing conclusive.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Hello to all,

Benny gave me the link in the Elvas Tower website about the issue. All three tenders types were labelled 'freight' and not as 'Tender'. Simply correct the type to tender and will correct the issue. The result shown here. Thanks Benny!

Will try to test this one to make sure it works all the way to the end.

Hello to all,

The train 74 template has been completed in around 2 hours. It started from WRJ with 40 cars, which the user must select at the start of the train, since it is a straight trip to Brattleboro. Once in Brattleboro, the CV 701 will swap power with the C-Liners to resume the remaining trip to New London on Diesel power, as explained by Paul on TS. The user must select as final destination the `To Vernon` siding. Once the train reaches the siding, simulating a continuity of the run to New London, the activity will end successfully. The only AI train in the activity is train 75 which left Brattleboro about 20 minutes earlier (2h25PM) than the train 74 player which left at 2h45PM in WRJ.

Hello to all,

Work has been continuing and the number of templates has now reached 20.I may have reached the maximum, but not sure yet. Out of authentic trains runs to create templates, I have turned my attention to fictional templates, trying to cover as possible the remaining serviceable sidings that have not been used yet. They include the latest two, covering the Springfield Terminal (STRY)and the Claremont and Concord (CCRR) trackage. They are smaller templates but as much fun to run. 44-tonners for each railroad have been selected as player trains. The initial train for both can include up to six (6) cars. One question to all, did the springfield Terminal or the C&C used cabooses on their trains? I didn't find any image on the net. For the C&C, I have taken a B&M caboose since they were part of the B&M system, I believe.

The following pictures are from the ST and the C&C templates. The first eight are from the STRY:

Great!

The Springfield Terminal never used cabooses. The Claremont & Concord did, originally, at least on their "long" train powered by a 70 Tonner. The Claremont & Concord caboose is included in the BLWZT ConnRiver set. Claremont & Concord had two crews, one serving as a Claremont switcher with a 44 tonner which would make several trips up the hill to Clarmeont from the Junction and the "long" freight which was a road switcher heading east into the hinterland beyond Claremont, almost to Concord. In 1956 the C&C would still have been running two passenger trips a day as well, using motor cars.

Hi Christopher,

I have completely forgotten about the C&C caboose. Thanks for your reply and info about the STRY.

After running the STRY template, I am considering adding Paul's Springfield Terminal route v2 with the current template project, using two routes and the current rolling stock. Use of two routes in a template project has been done once, that was with the DRGW Green River and Potash routes some years ago.

The challenge with this one is some steep grades inside the route. For example, the grades from both sides of the Cheshire bridge is about 5%. I have tested using the 44-tonner with 5 loaded boxcars. I have set up the STRY 44-tonner hp to 400 hp. I was unable to climb up the steep grade and reach the summit. One solution would be to adjust the ENG file and increase power to be able to handle the climb (BTW, Paul's STRY 44-tonner engine power when downloaded will need power adjustment since it is set about the same as a Dash-9)

I know the STRY 20 electric engine can deliver around 300hp. That is why I prefer using the 44-tonner, which began to run along the STRY in 1956, to what I have found. Also the cabview is better on the 44-ton. Of course, the user can swap engine to use the electrics and adjust Power in the ENG file.

I understand that the grades in real life at the Cheshire bridge were an issue and the little engine would have to make a run for it.
I've never seen any photos with the 44 Toner running with more than a few cars.
The electric units may have been able to draw more current for short times or have been heavier and so offered more traction.

Since there already is a Springfield Terminal template, it should be relatively simple to modify it with the new set.

Hi to all,,

Work is continuing and new templates have been done.

The first six shots are from the newly added Springfield route and only template to complement the Conn River:Pickups at the Junction, work along the route and setout back to the Junction.

The remaining shots are from the second steam template, that is the CV train 75 template. The previous steam template was for CV train 74 with the CV train 75 as the only AI. This time the CV 75 becomes the player train. It swaps from Diesel to steam at Brattleboro, do some work at the CV WRJ yard and leaves for Montpelier, ending up the activity.

Hi to all,

Just to confirm that the template making is now complete. The whole template project has 24 templates (15 prototypical and 9 semi-fictional or fictional) with 225 serviceable sidings. The updated system map, using Paul's original system map for the ConnRiver route, has been done and includes in RED changes to the route to accomodate the current template project. A sample is included among the next shots. For those who loves running steam, the last template (and fictional) uses a B&M Mountain steam engine to run between Westmoreland and North of WRJ to Wells River. Included are three pictures depicting part of the run, which will encounter, as traffic, C-Liners from CN.

The Readme file is mostly done and will be revised again to correct or add details if necessary to maximize use of the templates. I will revisit the templates to try to tweak each one of them as best as I can.

The shots now:

Hello to all,

Here are shots of the WRJSWITCHER_2 template which serves the CV yards and industries of the area being serviced by CV:

Conn River Template 127 by Denis Gionet, sur Flickr

BTW: Forgot to mention some posts ago that I have decided to rollback the timeframe to the original 1956.

I have given additional details about the 5 WRJ Switcher templates in the readme file.

The template set is getting closer to release.

For those who are curious about the image expected to appear in the templates page once uploaded, here it is:

One thing about the switchers: they also changed passenger power and made up road trains. But that might be too complicated to work into a template?

Hi to all,

To Chris: Suggestion taken and...done.

I am happy to announce a 25th template which depicts preparing a passenger consists for train 74, named the Connecticut Yankee, leaving later for Springfield and New York (based on documents Chris sent me earlier. Thanks again Chris!)

It required stretching some additional sidings ( changing the TDB file again) near the WRJ B&M station and adding passenger cars. Done!

Here's the scenario: The BM S4 player train starts with one RPO car, which is the first of six (6) cars to be assembled and is already in its place. Five more cars must be assembled in the exact sequence as suggested with AG's assemble cars feature. The activity should end once the cars are set in the designated siding and in the exact order. All cars to be set in the template are from Rick's ConnRiver dedicated BM-NH passenger cars (ztbttcombo.zip on TS). The reason I had put with the player engine one RPO baggage car is that it would have been next to impossible to have RPO cars first in the sequence of assembly. All cars to be handled are all coaches. That ensures that the RPO-baggage is the first of up to six(6) cars to be assembled.

The 12 shots (2 posts)
