{Update this post was updated with upto date images & Info 28/10/18}

Hello, Fellow Bus Drivers
I have recently been working on a left path map which is based on Leigh In Greater Manchester the Main routes I will be trying to recreate into OMSI 2 is 575 - Bolton Inter - Old Lords Est which is ran by Diamond and over time I will add in the Arriva 575 which goes from Bolton to Wigan , the next route I will be making is 125, from Bolton Interchange to Chorley//Preston, eventually I will be trying to recreate most of the routes that goes to Bolton Interchange over the Years I will be doing this map for Free, and I will be doing it quickly then to update it in future with more and more detail as I can.

The map started off at Leigh Bus station including 588, 589 591 + 2 Fictional circular routes 579 592 which is ran by Jim Stones & LCT ( Leigh Community Transport (Fictional))
I have also included X88 Route which is Ran by Arriva Sapphire which is 588 but only stops at the canal and an estate in Lowton.

Will this include different bus companies? Yes it will that can range from Diamond North West, Arriva, First, Stagecoach/Stagecoach Gold. What year is this set in, It is set in 2018 as much as possible to keep it updated as much as possible.

I aim to make this map quite a big map so over years it will become larger.
I may be looking for some help if you Inbox me I mainly am Looking for Realistic Buildings that could improve detail of the map and realism.

Release of this map is still yet Unknown as of 28/10/2018 but I will be keeping updates coming of the map this map may take a while to make as I do not get alot of freetime.
As of now in the screenshots I have painted on the Roads for now but this will change in the future to propper made roads.

You can donate by clicking the button below this will be going towards custom Object's & much more for the map

As I don't have alot of time I will not be rushing it, but I will be making it and then will improve more in depth in future to add to the detail.
hey there, may you consider the route 2(First group) and 300 express route on the M60 (diamond) to the trafford centre
Those routes may be added as I will be trying to make most of the routes through the Bolton Depot, I am open to more suggestions priorities for me will be 125, 575 , 501, 576 by Arriva , 540 , 571, 517/516 even though it dont stop at bolton interchange but will have the destinations to do so, I am open to people to give help in finding things to do with this map as this isnt just a personal project it is also a project for the community.

Please be paitent but this is only a rough patch for first off and will later be improved with more quality to height etc. as of now the map will be flat.

It's nice to see a map that'll be using Diamond buses, although I'd have preferred it to be in the Midlands rather than up north! Good luck with the project! :)
Using more then 1 route for diamond I estimate 3 or 4 routes for Diamond and then around 1 comfy bus too , Vision busses too quite a few companies in use in the north.

I'd be happy to help out with some Diamond repaints if you'd like, I've got a Rotala pack lined up as my next project after I've made some more progress with my National Express stuff, and I'm sure I can change a red diamond to a green one if needed. ;)

That would be a fantastic thing to do would go perfectly thats if you want to anyway, also Diamond run the 575 to horwich now so If you could would you make a 575 one It's the standard Diamond bus blue.

Do the 582 to Leigh & the 715 from Bolton to Wigan m, as I’m from Wigan if you need any help just PM me
Also the 540 will be made with both routes suggested by you within future, this may take time but main ones to be made are 575, 576, 540 , 715 , 582, 516, 517 ue to these lining up with routes previously being made.
