Announcement - Cleveland Lines

With Cresston V4 now coming to a close and hopeful of a release sometime towards the end of August, I have been looking for a new "spare time" project to follow it, another freeware route for the community.

Some who know me will be aware that in the early days of RS/RW, I had worked on the route from Darlington to Saltburn, however it never came to fruition for various reasons. Rather than start a new route from somewhere I am not familiar with, it was a no brainer to revisit my local area, a project that I could hit the ground running with that required little external research.

Rather than just build a specific line in the area, I have decided to create a completely new project under the "Cleveland Lines" banner. This means I can release the route in phases, pretty much like Cresston, and gradually add to the route in various directions to cover the whole Cleveland/Teesside/Yorkshire areas.

As with Cresston, this route will be built to the highest standard I can achieve, and will feature a wide array of custom assets. To avoid later confusion, I must stress from the outset that this route will require both the Edinburgh to Glasgow route by Thomson Interactive and also WCML North by Keith Ross/RSC. This enables me to take full advantage of the wide range of assets provided with these routes, allowing me to represent the area in the best way possible.
