    Default Dispatching. . .

    . . . in the fading light.

    This is Selkirk. I can`t seem to stay away from Selkirk. It has to be the most beautiful of all the routes even though I do love Barstow. Having said this, Barstow yard does flow better than Selkirk in terms of operations. Meaning: Less moves to get the job done. In my opinion Barstow Yard is a better design. Selkirk is a little more complicated. . .

    Default . . . The Selkirk Yard. . .

    . . . is gorgeous at night however. Late afternoon is not so bad either.

    Note: I should indicate the pics I am posting are a mix of High and Low res. Not everyone has the hardware needed to push the envelope.

    Uh, Ezra, if there's any rotation to that wall cloud to the south there, you better take cover! LOL

    Default A-Line

    The A-Line (Run8) Web page has a completely new design. The Tutorials on "how to read signals" are excellent under the Support-Tutorials section.

    Note: There is a free download (hyrailsimulations) train-set for Run8 in the "updates and extras" section. The free download will also work for the other V2 routes as well. They are under the update section called Amtrak Autoracks.

    Default Back to Barstow

    I decided to head back to Barstow and take a new approach to the ongoing learning curve. It`s just one of those things that takes time. . . at your leisure.

    Note: In my opinion, Barstow flows the best of all the rail hub yards in Run8. Especially the hump and classification yards.

    Have really enjoyed reading (and seeing the screenshots) your thread Ezra-- thanks for sharing! Partially responsible for me getting back into Run 8 after being away for a year. So, thanks again!

    Kind regards,
