  • Run8 Studios South Fork Secondary

    Run 8 Studios announces a new route for v3 -- the Norfolk Southern South Fork Secondary.

    Set in Pennsylvania, this 30 mile route depicts a line from South Fork which services three coal mines -- Huskin Run, Rose Bud and Shade Creek.

    The line climbs steeply out of South Fork on a nearly 2.4% ruling grade up to the summit. Most trains will either run in a 3X3 or 3X2 configuration, in a push-pull manner.

    Along its course up to each of these mines, there is a...

  • State of the Site - November 2023

    Happy Thanksgiving! I know we've got a lot to be thankful for in our household, and I hope everyone gets a chance to spend some time with those they care about and celebrate the good things in their lives.

    To celebrate fall a little late, I've been having some fun in the Upper Peninsula on MLT's Michigan Iron Ore route, which I've been meaning to pick up for a while.

    It's my idea of a perfect route -- not too large, and one where you can spend as little or as long as you...

  • Riding the Milwaukee Road... Sort of.

    This week, I got to combine two of my hobbies.... Off-roading and railroads.

    I've written before about some of our ATV rides in Tennessee, and we recently acquired a four seat Honda Pioneer 700 UTV to add to our off-road "toy collection".

    For those who have no idea ATV/UTV means... a "traditional" ATV (all-terrain vehicle) is a three or four-wheeler with handle bar steering and a motorcycle style saddle seat. A UTV (utility-trail vehicle) has a steering...

  • Rememberance Day / Veterans Day

    On this Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month, in the United States we honor our Veterans. Worldwide, many nations celebrate Remembrance Sunday, which this year falls on Sunday, November 12th.

    From the trenches to the oceans, islands, and deserts, Veterans answered the call when your country asked.

    You fought to protect our values, and paid a heavy price in doing so. Many continue to pay the price.

    Today, we remember those who fell in service and honor those...

Random Style of the Day: Seaboard Citrus

Seaboard Citrus is based on the Seaboard Air Line which used a variety of colors over the years, but the most iconic color scheme was the maroon and gold "Southern Belle" scheme. This scheme was introduced in 1947 and was used on all of the railroad's passenger equipment, as well as some of its freight equipment until its 1967 merger with the Atlantic Coast Line, which formed the Seaboard Coast Line.
