The Night Before Christmas


  • The Night Before Christmas

    'Twas the Night before Christmas, and all through the yard,
    Not a whistle was blowing, not a steam plume stirred.
    The engines, all silent, in slumber did sleep,
    While visions of passengers danced in their dreams.

    The rails, silver gleamed in the pale moon's light,
    As signals stood frozen, no red to ignite.
    No coal clattered down, no pistons did churn,
    Only soft winter snowflakes softly did turn.

    On the roundhouse roof, perched high with a grin,
    A lone Santa conductor, his work nearly din.
    He checked his dispatch list,eyes bright as the stars,
    Delivering dreams aboard freight and boxcars.

    For every train fan, a gift he'd bestow,
    New routes to explore, where rivers would flow.
    Scenic vistas unfurled, mountains to climb,
    Through tunnels and towns, on the wings of time.

    For the engineer's son, a starter set bright,
    With Thomas and Percy, chugging in the night.
    For the sim veteran, a route complex and grand,
    With signals to master, and switching lists at hand.

    A Pullman for one, a horn for another,
    A gleaming new GEVO, for sister and brother.
    For history buffs, a steam engine so grand,
    Whispering memories through a forgotten land.

    Each gift wrapped with care, in ribbons of code,
    Ready to download, as Santa rode.
    With a whistle so cheery, and a wave of his hand,
    He spread joy on the rails, across the whole land.

    So when morning arrives, and the sun peeks in bright,
    TrainSim fans awake to a magical sight.
    Their dreams come to life, on screens warm and aglow,
    The perfect Christmas, where train spirits flow.

    So raise a hot cocoa, a toast to the night,
    When Santa on Rails brought pure TrainSim delight.
    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good run,
    May your engines forever, under bright stars, gleam and hum!

    Happy Independence Day!

    It's hard to believe we're already halfway thru the year, but that's where we are.

    I do apologize for writing this a bit late -- hopefully by now, everyone who celebrates the day has had a chance grab a burger or brat at a cookout, and is getting ready to sit back and watch for some fireworks either tonight or in the coming days.

    Listening from my home office, the celebrating started in our neighborhood last night and hasn't stopped....

    by eric

    The folks at TrainSimulations.Net have another great rolling stock set for us....

    Mechanical refrigerator cars are an essential piece of railroading, bringing fresh fruit and produce from the growing fields in California and Florida, as well as meat from the Great Plains and fish from the coasts to consumers nationwide.

    This set offers the standard Pacific Car and Foundry 57' car that was in widespread use from the 1960's to the 1990's. A few still remain in service today...

  • 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...

    This week got off to a very interesting start... a perennial favorite here at Trainsim.Com has an update: the Full Bucket...

  • 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...
