    Locomotive Packs from DieselsWest
    by eric

    I'm happy to announce all four packs produced for the West Colton route by DieselsWest are now available for purchase in our storefront.

    These packs are essential for anyone who owns the West Colton route, and I have to say, look pretty darn good on the Shasta as well.

    Also available from DieselsWest is their Burlington Northern U30C setalso available. If you're a fan of late Second Generation GE power, you'll want to check this set out.

    Where has the year gone? Here we are almost in the month of June, my granddaughter is out of school again, and my wife's tomato patch looks to be off to a good start. Still waiting for the cicadas to hatch up in our neck of the woods, but I can't say I'm too concerned if they don't manage to show up. They're ugly and the dogs will probably be a bit freaked out...

    Memorial Day
    by eric

    It's Memorial Day in the United States.

    As most Americans will be enjoying the day off from work today, I wanted to write and acknowledge that our very ability to enjoy a holiday came at a very high price, which was paid for by those who gave their lives in conflict.

    Previously known as Decoration Day, this is not a day of celebration. It's not intended to be a day for parties, boating or barbecues.

    It is a day of commemoration, specifically set...

    3dTrains ORTS and v4 F-Units now available
    by eric

    If you're a fan of EMD F-Units, chances are one of the 3DTrains options posted to the Store this week will fit right in with your MSTS/ORTS collection. The ORTS Santa Fe F7 pack is designed for OpenRails, including a true 3D cab. The model detail is outstanding, and looks incredible pulling the El Capitan cars from NAVS in the library. A few folks have already told me the cab works great on other E and F units, so it may be worth the purchase just for that added feature and realism. There are also 13 v4...
