    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...

    Run8 Viewliner II Pack
    by eric

    Just in time for the summer travel season, the team at Run8Studios.com have come out with their Viewliner II pack, as well as v3 Update 15.

    Viewliners were developed in the 1990's to replace the remaining "Heritage" sleeping car fleet that had served Amtrak for over 25 years, and had been with the predecessor roads prior to that. A new modular approach was used for construction of the dorms, sleepers and diners. The shell of the car is physically separate from the interior. Duri...

    Pacific Surfliner available in the Store
    by eric

    Now available.... the 3DTrains Pacific Surfliner trainset. The Surfliner has a special place in my railfanning history, so I'm really happy to see this available again. We used to camp almost monthly at San Clemente and San Onofre, and would walk past the tracks daily going down to the beach. Pausing to watch the Surfliners roll by was always part of those beach days for me. I've long been a fan of F59PHI's, having ridden behind them countless times in Texas on the Trinity Railway Express, a...

    State of the Site - April 2024
    by eric

    A week ago, I was wondering "what in the heck can I write about this month?"...

    Taxes? Too depressing....

    UFL Football? I'd probably have to explain it to too many of you.

    The upcoming NFL Draft?

    Waiting a few days turned out to be good strategy, because a bunch of stuff hit over the course of a couple days, and it was all worth writing about.

    So without further procrastination, let's get to it....


    Whether it's music, mo...

Random Style of the Day: Quality Blue

Quality Blue is based on the colors used by Conrail (US) on its locomotives from the early 1980s until the railroad was merged with Norfolk Southern in 1999. It was allegedly inspired by the "Blueprint to Profitability" strategy used by the railroad in its early days, and intended to be a clean break with the colors used by its predecessor railroads.

In memory of our longtime moderator Dave Edwards, a longtime Conrail fan.
