The announcements are the best you guys have done! I've been waiting for an announcement with the calling at stations etc and it was the first one i heard! It's a shame the team can't get the license for it as it's the one thing I'd add to the sim! You guys have semi achieved this yourselves. This mod has made my year! <3 Thank you sooooooo much!!! Would love to see you guys do the same with other lines which i know you have to an extent but even more announcements like the calling at ones would be insane!!! I love that these don't cut off half way through either, they seemed to do that a lot on other lines

Silly Question - Do the announcements only happen at certain stations or in a specific way? Currently doing a timetable route but haven't heard any announcements so far.

They happen at every station and are played randomly. They are quite infrequent though. I think they only play once every 10 minutes so the chance that you'll hear one whilst driving is quite low.

Hey, Can you please make a patch to fix the PIS? It always lists a 323 as having 2 coaches if its 3 coaches. Then a 6 car as a 4 car. No one has made a patch for it yet and its annoying me alot

Hey, this would be something DTG will fix in their upcoming patch.

Oh yeah and If Possible one for the 323 PIS because that is always broken and lists every station as its starting point eg your at four oaks and it says your still at Redditch on the PIS.

Sorry One more lol, Whats your opinion on the 323 Sounds? I think they are realistic at the start when moving off but then kinda drift off to be more unrealistic and then i realised it would be probably to difficult for anyone to make a 323 Sound Mod.

I find them decent, however they’re a bit off at lower speeds.

Are you placing it in the correct DLC folder? It shouldn’t get overwritten or anything when you launch the game.

In the November 28th patch notes it said

"Redditch branch scenery between Alvechurch and Barnt Green has been improved and had new foliage and assets added."

Has this made the "Bescot-BCC_BarntGreenSceneryTile.pak" obsolete?

Avatar of londonmidland

Hi, it hasn’t. The mod is a lot more detailed compared to the official patch itself so you’re safe to keep it.

Hello, and thank you very much for this mod.

I have one question. There are certain services in the timetable for this route (e.g. 2N20 Four Oaks to Longbridge), where the train is supposed to continue past the final stop to a siding before reversing for the next service. The problem is that you cannot drive this part - even if you choose to continue the game, you get kicked out of the driver's seat and the AI takes over. Attempting to override it shows the message "You do not have permission to drive this service" until the train has stopped at the reversing point, and only then it allows you to take over to continue the next service. This is a bit immersion-breaking when you're driving in timetable mode. May I ask, wouldn't it be too difficult to allow the player to drive this part? Or is it outside the scope of this mod entirely, or perhaps not even possible with the currently available modding tools?

Thank you very much, again.
