    Click image for larger version  Name:	unnamed.jpg Views:	0 Size:	130.4 KB ID:	2306614 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 following rebuilds. A wide variety of roads are represented, including the UP, SP, ATSF, BN, CR, and a handful of leasing companies. The Class I cars come in several versions, so mixing a unit train without the same car being repeated next to itself is quite easy to accomplish.

    As with the more recent rolling stock packs, at $9.99 this is reasonably priced.

    You just can't get this much reefer anywhere else...

      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....

    • Locomotive Packs from DieselsWest
      by eric

      I'm happy to announce all four packs produced for the 3DTrainStuff.com 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...
