Welcome to my TrainzObjectz web site. This is where I let my hair down and concentrate on the fun things in life (Trainz to be precise) rather than the serious stuff you can find on the main TaFWeb Software site.

At present there are several pieces of software, a couple of layouts, and probably the largest collection of UK shops, factories, houses, etc. for Trainz that you will find on any independent web site. These are all available from the Download Section as well as Auran's Download Station. I am adding to these quite frequently, so keep an eye on the list of new additions below. Feel free to browse around and download what you like. Everything is entirely FREE, but if you feel you would like to help support this web site please see our Downloads page. Comments are welcome, but I cannot guarantee to reply to every e-mail.

Have fun!

Recent survey about my gMax files
Response to the survey about whether I should release my original gMax files into the public domain has not been as great as I had hoped. I have therefore regretfully decided that the interest in downloading the original gMax files is not sufficient to warrant the considerable work that would be involved in making them available for downloading. I would, however like to thank all of you who took part in the survey, and remind you that a number of the files (including Barclays Bank, Beam Bridge, Beam Road Bridge, Factory 1, Corrugated Fence, Signal UK, Suburban Shop 6 and Town House 3) are already available from here. You might also find the tutorial on how to create the Barclays Bank model useful if you want to create your own models.

Please note that I am no longer actively working on Trainz projects and have little or no experience of any Trainz versions after TRS2006.

I regret that I am no longer able to guarantee any form of support for my Trainz objects.

We are proud once again to be associated with the latest version of Trainz. All of my content included in Trainz 1.3, Trainz UTC, TRS2004 and TRS2006 is also included in TS2009. The TRS2006 objects are also available as separate downloads for use with earlier versions of Trainz. The TRS2004 objects are not available for separate download.

Using my content in TRS2006

Nearly all of my content should transfer into TRS2006 without problems, but a few items have been updated for TRS2006 so that they do not show errors in Content Manager Plus.

Using my content in Trainz Classics

I have not tested any of my custom content in the Trainz Classics series or later versions, although I know of no reason why they should not work.

Using my content in Trainz TS2009

Most of my content will transfer to TS2009 without problems, but a few show errors even though they seem to work OK. I will be working to produce new error-free versions of these items in due course.

Using my content in later versions Trainz

I do not have access to any later versions of Trainz and I am therefore unable to say whether it is possible to use my content in these versions.

Downloading to TRS2004 when TRS2006 is also installed

A number of people have asked if it is possible to download items to TRS2004 when they also have TRS2006 installed on the same machine. The answer is "Yes", and this article explains how to do it.

Statement Regarding Payware Content

Auran have announced that they are to provide support for third-party "payware" content (content you have to pay for as opposed to "freeware"). While I have nothing against payware I would like it to be known that I do not intend to follow this path - everything I produce (except items included as built-in content in Trainz) is free, and I intend to keep it that way. However, there arises the question of payware layouts which include some of my free content. My policy is that you can use any of my content in a payware layout provided that (a) you do not try to claim the content as your own, (b) you do not charge for the content itself (only for the layout) and (c) you tell me that you have used my content. Regardless of anything which might appear in the licence (which may have been written before payware was thought about) there is no need for you to seek prior permission from me. I believe that Auran may require payware layout authors to seek written permission from freeware creators like myself. You can take this announcement as being written permission for that purpose.
