  • Feather River now available

    Click image for larger version  Name:	capture_500587.jpg Views:	0 Size:	181.7 KB ID:	2300158 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.

    There's an Information Page with details on the route, how to purchase, and how to install.

    This is one that I missed out on, and will be adding to my collection. I hope everyone who missed out on it will do likewise!

    If you are looking for additional train sets to run on the route, two great packs are available over at TrainSimulations.net including a newly released Western Pacific set with GP40's and over 30 freight cars, which looks spectacular from the screen shots others have shared.

    They also have the 1984 Union Pacific set that was created especially for this route. That has over 50 freight cars and six activities for the 3DT route and DD40, SD40 and GP9 models.


    To see the route in action with some BLW equipment.... At The Railyard did a superb review.





    Links to the BLW sets can be found on the information page.

    Even Amtrak is at home here, as it has served as a detour route for the present-day California Zephyr between Winnemucca, NV and Roseville, CA from time to time (and when it does, expect it to sell out as quickly as word spreads).

    All in all... this route is going to give you lots of options for equipment and activities.

    And... since it's Tax Day, if you're one of those lucky enough to be getting a refund from your state or federal filing, this is a great way to put it to use. And maybe a First Class Membership go to with it?

      Will the Sherman Hill route also come available?

      It's so great to see this route available once again (and thank you for featuring my video!).

      Eric, does this version fix the issue with the car washers? In my MSTS copy, they don't work in Open Rails.

  • 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...

    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....

    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.
