East Kentucky 3 V1.1 No Speedtrees.

Note: Much of the text copied here is from the old site. Dermmy description best fits this route.


“East Kentucky 3 does NOT set out to be an accurate portrayal of the L&N East Kentucky line at any particular period in the line’s history.  It sets out rather to create a fun-to-operate Trainz virtual model railway inspired by the L&N’s East Kentucky line.  The route is modified by requirements dictated by the workings of the Trainz AI (Artificial Intelligence) to provide a route in which the operator can conduct meaningful assignments with a realistic background level of AI controlled traffic.  The most radical departure from reality is that almost the entire main is double-tracked to ease the traffic congestion which would result from the Trainz signalling requirements on a long single-track route.  Also there is no pre-defined time period for the route.  Most of the coal loadouts reflect the late steam/early diesel era – say late 40’s to late 60’s.  The signalling though is modern – of all the signals available the ones used are imho the best available, both in looks and functionality.  Trackwork is more complex than the prototype for two reasons: firstly double tracking the main complicates entering and leaving yards but mostly I like complex pointwork!  There will be far too many crossings and slips, but I guarantee that it will all work prototypically!  Road traffic is a mix and match of what is available, mostly 50’s/60’s but it’s not even all American!  Passenger Depot’s are provided at all likely locations on the main line because I like passenger operation of the old sort – a four-axle diesel and a couple of heavyweight cars.”

Included in the download is the route, a dependency file for TS12, and a dependency file for Tane. As I do not have TRS2019 as of yet and can not test out the route in it, I will have to assume the dependencies for Tane will do the job.

As for making a version with speedtrees for Tane and TRS2019, I will see what I can do in my spare time.



I need to get some permissions for the Rolling stock for the two sessions before I can post them. There is currently 2 sessions, Jeff Coal and Endless coal.


Finding your way around…

East Kentucky 3 is a complex route with many branches. Fred Dugger (fdugger) and Allen Jenkins (Backyard) prepared two very different maps of the route.  Both maps are .pdf files.

Fred’s is a traditional map which allows you to quickly work out where you are and where you need to be.


Allen’s is a detailed schematic of the route showing track diagrams for every yard and loadout.
