Thanks for the feedback. Here is the what is close to the finished lot.





One problem is that I have made this a commercial lot with jobs. To get it to work with the RHW I will need to somehow convert it to a park lot as the RHW doesn't provide road access.





Not a big change from the last lot of pic's, just a few more lights, peeps and trees.

Looking good there Dave.

This one is going to be very popular I believe when released.  That KFC building is a great choice for the lot - can I ask where it's from?  Not sure I've seen it before.

Looking good Dave. Not sure I fully understand the access issue since the lot appears to be on a feeder road, but I'm not really familiar with RHW. Anyway, I'm sure you'll get the details ironed out.

Later...

I really like your latest rest stop.  Very realistic.  The A&W and KFC shop reminds me of around here!

Anyway, here is a sat view of a truck scale near here I drive through often.  It's not a rest stop like you have been making, but a truck scale station like this would be awesome as well!

Hi all, I'm back from the wilderness and hopefully can spend a bit more time around here, do a few updates and visit some threads.

Thanks for all the feedback. The rest stop is complete (well I think so anyway) and here are a few more pic's:









Just need to complete the readme, get some testing done and hopefully it will be on the LEX soon.

Cheers

Hi Dave,

Well that is looking very good indeed.  Plenty of activity going on there, which makes for an interesting lot.

I look forward to plopping a few of those in my cities.

Lookng good there Dave. I think you found the right balance on the lot, not too busy, but not dull/sparse. It's a big one, but I'm sure it'll be fairly easy to work with. Great stuff as always.

Hi Dave, and welcome back! The rest stop looks great and I think it will be a popular addition to the LEX. On a recent road trip, I observed a lot of things including rest stops. I didn't see any like yours, but the one you've created is much more functional than the ones we encountered.

So, looking forward to DLing this in the near future...

Well it's been awhile since I've been here  ()sad()

But I'm still dabbling with the LE as my fellow NUTs know. Here are some pic's of a railyard I have put together for Balnavia. My first rail lot and first one that is TE'd (although that was a lot easier than I thought).







Let me know what you think. And I really show brush the cobwebs off the truck stop and get it to the LEX.

Cheers all.

Dave

Well Dave honestly I do like it a lot but if you wouldnt mind me suggesting that if you could add another line of rail that would go straight threw or even that could be a seperate lot all together then?? Other wise  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

You've done well creating a working rail yard, Dave. I'm kind of waiting for STR to be released as a finished product, but the Maxis DTRs you've used could certainly fit in with it. I guess. I'm a total dummy when it comes to tracks of any kind, but like the looks of the new ones showing up in 3RR.

In any event, there will need to be a rail yard somewhere near a BAT project I'm working on that was shipping out train-loads of cotton 150 years ago. Although there's been a slight interruption in production - those boll weevils can do some serious damage - things will be back on track soon.

Good work, and glad to see both of my partners back in LE.

Very nice work indeed. &apls

I like the overall look of the yard, just wonder how the get the containers on and off the carriages?

And dusting off the truck stop - an early xmas pressie methinks :D

till the next time
