Run8 - A New CSX Route and an Update


  • Run8 - A New CSX Route and an Update

    It's been a busier than normal week for the folks over at Run 8 Studios.

    Hyrail Solutions released their CSX Baldwin, centered around Baldwin, Florida near Jacksonville.

    Run8 issued their latest game update as well - Dale wrote about it in the Run8 forum here back on Monday, so check out the details at the following link:

    Update 11 is coming out November 1 2023. Update will show date of 10.27.23 . This update has fixes for issues from users using the reporting site to the programmer. Listed below the fixes from the change log Run8 V3 Change Log Update11 (

    The Baldwin route features portions of the Tallahassee, Callahan, Wildwood, and Jacksonville Subdivisions, which all meet at Baldwin. While actual distances weren't provided, this looks to have about 80 miles of running in a fairly busy traffic point for the CSX network.

      Ah, the 3DTrains Feather River Route.

      It's iconic, and visually one of the best routes ever created prior to OpenRails...

      And, it's back!

      We're hosting the file here at Trainsim to help our our friends at 3DTrains, who have been without a sales site for over two years now.

      It's Anniversary Week!

      Looking back a few days, March 8th marked the one year anniversary of separating Trainsim.Com from its previous owner, and ending a negotiation which had started five weeks earlier.

      But that's not the only anniversary at hand...

      Tonight, March 12th, marks a somewhat more significant milestone -- the one year anniversary of moving onto our own servers, and thus having total control over our collective destiny as a community.

    • It's Been A Year?

      It's been a little over a year since FlightSim sold off Trainsim, and what a year it's been.

      Rather than rehash that, I just wanted to take this time to thank a few people.

      First of all, Nels Anderson for starting and funding the site, and Rick Frerichs for literally keeping it running during those two plus decades. Rick wrote the original software used for the file library, and it performed flawlessly up to the day we moved from the FlightSim servers to our own servers....

      And just like that, NFL football is over for the season. Those of you who don't follow football closely may not understand the emptiness that sets in following the end of the regular season (especially for those whose teams don't make the playoffs), but for me, watching football is a block on the weekend where I am guaranteed to get mostly uninterrupted time to concentrate on programming fixes and other things Trainsim related because our household watches a lot of football... Congrats to the ...

      I'd say we are off to a very good start to the year... The last few years, I've been out of meaningful NFL football to watch by the first week of January, and able to spend more time doing other things. This year, my Packers shocked the world and knocked out the #2 Dallas Cowboys, making it to the Divisional Round officially as the youngest average age team in NFL history and the first #7 seed to advance to the Divisional Round... Unfortunately, this past weekend they lost a close game to the...
