Peak Forest Enhancement / Colour Correction Pack

Here's a little pack to change some stuff (hopefully for the better!) on this lovely route. To be honest, there isn’t a great deal to mess about with but I see one of the issues being that a number of assets are very vivid in colour and brightness, looking out of place as a consequence. I've toned down a number of things including;

  • Phone box
  • All vehicles
  • Platform Trolleys
  • Platform luggage
  • 3D flowers
  • Collectible lunch 7 tea flask
  • Churches
  • Industrail zones inlcuding the day-glow Quarry
  • All rolling stock
  • Much of the metalwork and painted wood in the stations

I've also added a bit more vibrance to the fire buckets as they looked washed out compared to everything else, and completely changed the colours of the truck because the yellow and blue was far too bright and vivid. All-in-all subtle changes but the overall look is now much more harmonious in my opinion.

Addtionally I've also changed;

  • More realistic posters
  • Changed the route map collectible to something more interesting and appropriate
  • Placed a custom 'departures board' texture on the blank chalkboard .
  • Finally, for now, I've doubled the resolution of all the cab and tender textures for the steam locos as although the originals are fairly high resolution anyway it doesn't translate into in cab. In theory this should use a bit more VRAM but I've not noticed it at all. In case it causes an issue there is a version without the cab textures included.


  • TSW3
  • Peak Forest DLC


Not required but essential nonetheless!

Very highly recommended

Additional Comments

v1.1 | 22/05/23

  • Fowler 4f cab texture done again from scratch as the metalwork in the cab was still too bright and vividly coloured. Believe now it is more natural in appearance (note this affects the cab texture pack only)
  • Brightness of cream coloured metal on station lamposts reduced to more realistic levels (both packs)
  • Typo in naming of file corrected ('Forest' instead of 'Forrest'). Please note, if you install this update you will need to manually delete the older version as the name change will mean Windows will not override it


  • Initial release

Hey do you have an issue with the Fowler that if you drive it while doing a scenario or a timetable that at a certain point(about 2-5 minutes after starting) the scenario will fail? I found out it's the fowler because whne doing breaking the bank if you go up to the 6f and drive that up the hill instead of the fowler that it won't fail but the second you get back into the fowler bam it says immediately that the scenario failed. There's a

That's you losing boiler pressure I believe. Turn auto fireman on and you should be fine. I've had no issues with it
