website, along with our sister site covering the South of the country,
will be bringing you the latest news and updates in the world of
is to keep you updated on all the new content, locomotives, rolling
stock and routes that have a connection to the Northern realms of
the UK. For steam buffs that means we'll be concentrating on the
two companies which dominated the North, the LMS and the LNER.
we'll also be covering the modern image era from BR right through
to today's post-nationalised companies, where pretty much every
locomotive has worked in most parts of the country, at one time
be looking at existing content and also covering work in progress,
and hopefully speaking to some of the creators about some of the
projects they have planned.
near future we'll be bringing you details of shows in the area,
where you can see Trainz being demonstrated, or maybe you'd like
to volunteer to help out or even co-ordinate a show yourself!
got some exciting plans for the UK websites in future months and
hope you'll visit us regularly and to find out what's new to keep
your Trainz up to date with the latest content!
you haven't already got a copy of Trainz, don't worry, you can order
online today and we'll have it shipped direct to your door!
is our first update, I should introduce myself. My name is Paul
Franklin, and currently live in Scotland, though I'm a native of
had an interest in railways since childhood, and Trainz has allowed
me to build routes I only dreamed of and never could do with Hornby,
Lima, Bachman and a piece of 6x4 chipboard!
interest in Trainz is creating routes, if you already have TRS you
may have seen Rosworth Vale, which is one of my creations. I'm also
a Beta Tester for Trainz, and have been involved in this since the
first service packs for Trainz Community Edition.
time permits you may see me demonstrating TRS2004 at shows with
Trainz On The Road (TOTR). If not you can usually find me at the
Trainz Forums under the name of ChileanLlama, hopefully passing
on some of the knowledge I've gained since first diving into Trainz
two years ago.
