Updated 15\4\24 Added !!!!GWEcableTrunkingColour.pak - Add this in addition to your GWE ep option for a more oxidised better blended in Cable trunking.
Both mods will do the following-

Added fencing. clutter and grafitti around Reading and Paddington, Digital adboards at the larger stations. Extra lighting for urban areas.
Tidy up of existing route OHLE assets and addition of more features. Additional fuel stations at Reading Traincare Depot.
Bring scenery upgrade to the Paddington-Reading route. (Updated 12\8\24 Horns refined, Wiper rain FX fixed for HST Reading OHLE and clutter).
Adds textures and attenuation tweaks to the following (with the exception of the HST horn, resource files are unchanged, so you can add sound mods and RVVs of your choice. )
GWR HST -Cab texture, NRN, GSMR, Attenuation plus new horn.
GWR166 - Cab texture, GSMR, Attenuation plus new horn.
DBHKA -Exterior texture, Attenuation.
EWSFKA -Exterior texture Attenuation. New formation to include empty wagons and new brands.

Updated 27\3\24 Based on feedback and consideration, Ive dialled back on the HST Cab material, (less grubby looking) In addition I have toned down the MK3 Interior lights as I thought they were a touch too bright. As a result they are easier on the eye and look better on passing trains.
GWE2016 - As depicted in the default route. Unfinished masts west of Airport Junction.
GWE PRE OHLE - All masts removed west of Airport Junction. Plus a few changes from the Hybrid pack file (ie No Azuma at North Pole) Suitable for time period 2011 to 2016.
**NEW 1\4\24
GWEPREOHLESceneryONLY - Scenery mod and OHLE removal west of Airport juntion, no changes to rolling stock.
GWEsceneryONLY - Scnery mod- no OHLE removal, no changes to rolling stock.

If you want the static JNAs to have logos. Ive added my CAIB MRL JNA file below the main one.
For those that have the RHTT 66, I have a revised version on offer intended to enhance the audio, cab texture and slight livery variation also included below.
I have also made a similar ep for the ECML 66 I will link below.
AS A BONUS Ive enjoyed the recent announcement mods using Soundpad. In regards to this pack, whilst announcements for the HST wouldnt be appropriate, Ive added a guards whistle and double beep. To simulate an AI guard. If youre not familiar with how these mods work, see the sounds section of this website.


Required to benefit from all changes-
Blackpool Branches
West Cornwall Local
Peterborough Doncaster
West Somerset
Class 33 addon
Peak Forest
MML Leicester Derby Nottingham


I also use the 166 sound mod by ItsYa165 with my Horn and attenuation settings (from this mod) enhancing it.

I use the HST Class 43 and MK3 Sound mod by ItsYa165 with my Horn and attenuation setup (from this mod) enhancing it.

Optional but very good.

Installation Instructions

Drop only 1 of the 2 GWE options into game DLC folder.

Query- since I don't own MML or West Cornwall, which enhancements will I be missing?

ROB S 6 Mar 2024

Top of my head, might be the odd asset Ive placed, but mainly, light EMT powercar at OOC. Static 37 at Southall depot.

This is really cool! will the WCL modern timetable and route be updated?

Avatar of ROB S
ROB S 6 Mar 2024

I cant speak for that one. The scenery was mine, timetable wasnt. Only really had time to do this, wanted an upgrade in time for Cargo Line 2

looks great as always, its a shame we still cant add eletrification to the route so it would be more authentic with the 800 and 387 without having to rebuild the entire route

Hi Great work looks so new,but i have a problem with the HST ,the wipers dont clear the screen when raining.
I have taken your mod off then tried again the wipers work so its a problem with the mod,other than that you have done a great job .

Avatar of ROB S
ROB S 8 Mar 2024

Is there? Hmm. Could be an older pre wiper update file in the pack. I’ll remove or fix it. Sorry about that.

What was the previous patch's file name? Would like to figure it out as I have both !RobGWE.pak and RobGWEep.pak, also, will you consider release the TS2Prototype-FKACombo3.pak?

Avatar of ROB S
ROB S 17 Mar 2024

New 17\3\24GWE released. Only use that one. If Combo 3 was the Chinese Containers. I no longer have the source. If you have it. Feel free to distribute it. It should still work with !! added to the name.

Good mod, but my game was crashing because the previous name was different than the new name. Can you try to keep the naming consistent so it will automatically remove the old version

Avatar of zzw1983
zzw1983 24 days ago

Can you please organize your mods a little better. The constant renaming and deletion/addition is very sloppy. Some consistency would help. Good mods, just very disorganized.

Avatar of ROB S
ROB S 23 days ago

You can always rename them however you like. I dont need to do all the work 😉

Avatar of zzw1983

No problem. Thanks for these. Transformed the route entirely.

A little confused here. Can you please clarify. The "!!" will load first?
I can install
GWEpreOHLEsceneryONLY.pak <-These two are okay to install together-> !!RobGWEpreOHLE.pak
and or I can install
GWEsceneryONLY.pak <-These two are okay to install together-> !!RobGWE2016.pak

The scenery only packs are alternatives. I had requests for the ep to provide an option to only change the route znd not the rolling stock.
Yes the ! gives priority over other mods. For the packs with rolling stock changes I added !! as there are sound mods out there for the 166 and HST that have one !. Adding two !! to my pack allows my horn sound to overide theirs whilst still allowing the user to benefit from the the rest of the additional sound mod.
