I have had an Australian railway simulator for years and equally years ago thought I would build the old Glasgow tramway just for the west of the city where I have always lived but over three years off and on did the whole blessed system! It is apparently the largest tram sim done on what had been a real one. I walked every former route and traced every ex-terminus. I was also helped by seeing a really giant line sketch of the whole thing at the Annual Scottish Model Rail Show at the SECC. Could only use objects and buildings people on the Trainz system buld but did not stop me. A fan from down south buil the Standard, Kilmarnock Bogie, Single-decker, Coronation and Cunarder. I actually got to travel on the single-decker that used to be based in Partick Tram Depot. When young thought I wa seeing things when a single came out the depot and on reaching the triangular junction at Dumbarton road swung west with Clydebank on the scree, Seems was an extra for the busy workers time with people coming out the shipyards so the next day went to Partick at the same time and took it to Whiteinch!

Here is my website and when I upload it to the NV3 Trainz website people who have the sim can download and drive trams and or programme them to run and so on. I have a show for the West-Central-North-East-Southeast-South and Southwest. It is massive........

It is a modification(aka mod) of a simulator, you would need this and apply the mod, when its released, to see it running

I thought they were on an actual site.

Thanks anyway John.
