By Leonhearth-What's new in South-West Netherlands 2.01
The biggest news of course is the expansion to Rotterdam Central Station.
For a total length from Vlissingen to Rotterdam Central Station of no less than 145km!
There will be no less than 7 new stations within the new piece, so you will be in 2.0 from Dordrecht can continue driving.
You will pass De Kijfhoek, the largest shunting yard in the Netherlands. The Barendrecht Tunnel above ground.
But of course also the Feyenoord Stadium to finally arrive in Rotterdam Central Station.
Besides the expansion of the route, there have been many adjustments over the entire route to mention a few small things
- Scenery further on , The route has more depth than ever before.
There are more buildings to see in the distance, but of course trees, roads, etc. to make the route even more realistic.
This also especially in the larger cities think of flats that can be seen in the background from the railroad.
Although it is technically impossible to fill up everything and make the route run smoothly, I try to make it a bit more realistic.
to make it seem that it's not just 1 street from the station.
- Signals are also a lot replaced, fixed or improved with new settings for advanced signal aspects.
- XGHL signals are also new in 2.0. With the arrival of the Kijfhoek there will be a lot more freight traffic,
And in order for all these heavy trains to run safely over viaducts and through tunnels, these signals were created.
- ETCS beacons on places where this protection is used for Christrain and the K-Trains Traxx.
- Coha 2.0 track for an even more realistic look of the route by adding 2,5D elements for the sleepers and more.
- Hand-junctions are now also new, before this everything was automatic. But to take it a step higher again.
Several pieces have been rebuilt as well,
- Goes got a new station, the platform was moved and rearranged. ( this because of the future viaduct ! )
- The canal through Walcheren has been completely replaced, now has water with reflection. also the towpath that runs along it has been modified.
- Middelburg has had great adaptations in the area, mainly replacing houses.
- Roosendal has tackled the old site, but also a large part of the environment.
- Many towns and villages along the entire route have had adjustments when it comes to houses, as many houses as possible from the London area.
route are mainly replaced by Dutch houses that were not there before.
These are just a few small examples of what has been renewed, only a true connoisseur of the route will see everything !
And of course also the necessary improvements, to make everything even more realistic, a lot of houses have been replaced.
the new Coha 2.0 tracks that do a lot. and all this without making the route heavier but with more FPS in heavy spots.
in some places it might only be 1 or 2 fps. but every fps is another one !
All in all enough to look forward to !

What has changed!
One of the biggest changes to the route will be the new overhead line. 100% of the route has been adjusted to make way
for a new catenary system from "Michael1234" a very extensive system that makes a big difference for every NL route.
For example, the route now has 99% the overhead line as in real life! (sometimes it's just not possible to get it exactly the same)
The track has also had a major change, the tracks are still from COHA, but there are a large number of tracks
adapted, switches renewed and the track has also been given more color. just to give an example on Roosendaal is a big one
part of the shunting track rebuilt to reality also to get the catenary in place.
Middelburg station has been modified and now has its real station building thanks to Frison. there are also a number of platforms
Updated with new platform types to make everything just that little bit.
The area also had an overhaul with the SBS tree package by adding and replacing a large number of trees, bushes etc.
this so that the skyline in the route corresponds better with reality.
