    Okay, now that's just weird. I used the same NYSW RS-1 and caboose consist when I explored the route for the first time. Great minds think alike, eh?

    Hi,
    I like the shots, very nice.

    I have a question, if I may? I've always liked and use many of Paul's custum buildings and objects for personal upgrades. Did Paul create more for this route as well?

    Nicely done Paul

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Neil,

    The first thing I do when I get one of Paul's routes, and I have all four of them, is go through the shapes folder and look at the buildings in ShapeViewer. I can honestly say that about 75% of the buildings are new. As alwasys he has done a superrb job, in the "Master Modeler" class as far as I am concerned.

    In addition to Paul being a master modeler he's also very, very good at lineside placement of buildings and other objects. Lots of routes obsess about having every track just so, but then just drop buildings down with no reference to reality. Not Paul. Check out the proportions here - extremely realistic. Once again Paul scores big!

    Paul's routes are based upon real life railroads and he researches them quite thoroughly. The result of that plus the extra care he puts into the building of each route makes for realistic scenes like this:


    I admire Paul's efforts and besides looking good his routes - the longest of which is his still under construction DAR, give an engine crew prototypical work to do in a realistic setting.
