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 line was not electrified (it was electrified 1989--1991). The line goes through a beautiful agricultural landscape, very different from the densely built area 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 trafficked since August 31 1863.

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

The maximum speed of the route is, according to the timetable, 25 mph.

The time table is based on use of the Bullied Pacific class West Country steam engine. At the simulated route, passenger trains were hauled by that engine class in speeds up to 90 km/h.

Heavy Coal

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
This is something rather unusual in OpenBVE: A freight route. The line is fictitious but the scene is an Australian line through mountainous terrain. The task is to drive 3 000 metric tons freight train with 30 coal-filled hopper cars from the COALEX terminal in Lithgow to its destination in Penrith. The route goes through the Blue Mountains, so there is the problem of pulling the freight uphill and then not to let the train overspeed downhill later on. This BVE simulation is from the year of 2001, but it is still a good freight route.
