New Blender Content Creation Tutorial for v3.0 and later

Link to Blender 3.0 tutorial pdf file

After threatening for years (again) to produce a new Blender tutorial on creating a loco for Trainz it has finally been released. You can download it here or via the tutorial pages on this site.

This time I'm not going to detail how to build a specific loco but instead the emphasis will be on techniques that can be used for any model and it will be a lot more detailed than the earlier ones that I did - it is though very much a work in progress.

I would be grateful for any feedback if anything is unclear or needs further explanation.

This WebSite on Mobile Devices

This WebSite is now 'responsive', i.e. it will automatically adapt the display to suit mobile devices. I'm working on it, so there might still be some issues...

After spending loads of money on software to help create a responsive site, in the end I did it with a text editor and a few lines of CSS. There's plenty of info on the Internet on how to do this, or indeed just about anything.

I can recommend Microsoft's Visual Code Studio for editing and creating WebSites, this is free and available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

Links To Modelling Magazine Indices Now Available

I've added links to Google Sheet documents with my Indices to this site. These list drawings and other articles from old issues of Railway Modeller, Model Railway Constructor and Model Railways. I also have all copies of Model Railway News from 1960 to 1969, so one day I might add those as well. Click here to jump to the Indices Page.

Payware Models Discontinued

Due to continuing problems with the shop software I was using I've decided to discontinue the Payware items I have offered in the past. All of the models are relatively old now and not up the latest standards, but if you have already purchased something I will continue to provide support and updates for new versions of Trainz such as T:ANE, TS19 and TS22.
