CLIFF & RAILWAY CUTTING SPLINES

Cliffs & cuttings form a major part of the railway environment in most countries around the world. Unfortunately, while TRAINZ terrain can include cliffs, the resulting stretched textures and the inability to have cliff faces close together (to form "cuttings") make this aspect of the TRAINZ route lacking in the detailed realism desired by many modellers

With TRAINZONE's range of 12 different cliff textures (combined with the choice of sloping top or flat top cliffs) even an inexperienced modeller can add amazingly realistic cliffs to their layout in seconds.

To reduce the unrealistic repeating pattern that's common when using a repeating spline each cliff set has been created in 12 different connecting splines including both intermediate and end splines. By mixing the splines and raising and lowing the spline points the modeller can achieve unique variations in each of his cliffs.

 

The following screenshots are from the sample layout "Clifton County" that is available when purchasing the Cliff/Ledge/Stones combo package.

CLIFF LEDGE RAIL SPLINES

For full list of Kuid numbers for RIVER SPLINES refer to Kuid registry

horizontal rule

 

 
Laying rail track in the real world was at times a slow and extremely difficult task as engineers sought to transverse very difficult and mountainous country. In many cases narrow ledges had to be cut along the sides of deep ravines and gorges. As this was an expensive job the ledges where kept as narrow as possible. Unfortunately TRAINZ Surveyor does not have the ability to lay realistic narrow ledges. They end up unrealistically wide and with the stretched texturing a high standard of realism is impossible to achieve.

By using TRAINZONE's narrow pre-tracked rail ledge splines very narrow ledges can be created to add a much higher level of realism to your layout.

While the rail ledge splines can be used on their own, an even higher level of realistic rugged-country scenery can be created when they are used in conjunction with the cliff splines.

 

The following screenshots are from the sample layout "Clifton County" that is available with the cliff splines.

By combining the Standard CLIFF SPLINES with these RAIL LEDGE Cliff Splines, magnificent track side scenic features can be created

THE USE OF ALTERNATE TRACK

While we have tried to include a wide range of available track with the Cliff Ledge Rail Splines it is realised that many modellers will have different track that they would rather use.

This can be done by simply modifying the track kuid number in the Config.txt file. The details for how to so this are are included on the Download Page.

 

 

 

 

ROCK SPLINES

Detail is important to add realism to any layout. Whether a rock covered field, a sea shore or a river, ROCKS are one of the details that form a part of many nature scenes. As such they are a vital part of many railroad landscapes.

To achieve this effect we have created a large variety of different rocks both in Static scenery items and Splines that can be mixed and matched to provide each layout with its own individual and unique presentation.
