sem34090 posted a topic in Discussions générales - TS 2020Hello! Some of you may have come across this project on other forums, but I thought it good to post here too given that it involves the replication of parts of France and Belgium. More information on the project can be found here: http://sem34090.simplesite.com/ - sem34090 Post copied from the UKtrainsim forum: Hello all.I was just talking to a friend of mine, and following my finding a rather nice ROD Black reskin for the DT GWR 4300, and we feel that it would be a nice thing to create a Railway Operating Division route, set in France or Belgium behind British lines towards the latter part of the conflict. Right now we have plenty of appropriate British rolling stock to get started with, but perhaps assets are lacking.The first thing to do will be to identify a suitable date and location for the route. We have yet to do this, but I will be looking over some British trench maps in the next few days, and it would be fantastic if someone could suggest a suitable location, based on perhaps the availability of photographs or other information.Another thing to do will be to identify appropriate assets, and potentially to ask if anyone would be willing to create some custom assets. Other things to consider are vehicles and troops - I can't think of any currently available assets for either, though perhaps some existing railwaymen can be reskinned into Khaki uniform. I am hoping that there may be some community support for this project, but I am determined to make a go of it regardless, as I think it would make an interesting, if perhaps morbid in the eyes of some, project and something different. I hope to have more to post soon. The current plan is to be able to release the route completed and available on June 28th 2019, as although we cannot now realistically meet the Armistice centenary on the 11th of this month we can perhaps try and aim for the official ending of the war - the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28th 1919.- sem34090
