TS2017 Tutorials Home Page, A Guide for Beginners

The following tutorials are offered to you as an enhancement to the many resources available on the Internet relating to DTG's Train Simulator 2017. By no means are these tutorials exhaustive, nor do they cover every aspect or feature of the topic. They were produced in an effort to provide the beginner with easy, step-by-step guidance. Further information can almost always be obtained by posting a question on the forums mentioned on our blog page, Route Building #1 - Introduction and Planning.

My buddy, Glenn, in the UK also does not claim to be an expert in this field. He produced a couple of video tutorials for me when I was first getting involved with shapes and textures. I found them helpful and so, with Glenn's permission, I am making them available to you:
