    Looks like they dumped a load of coal in the pit.

    Here's a short video of the Keyser Turntable in action.

    Already done! The image above confirms it is now working.
    Yeah, I also plugged it in earlier. Moving on now to get transfer tables operable for some projects.

    Yes, it can, all that needs to be done is add it to the Turntable DAT file in the routes open rails folder.

    I was describing the Paterson cutoff eastbound and should have noted Pinto as my starting point. Which Cumberland Terminal is needed? The Trainsim Library already has a nice looking WM Cumberland Station. I placed it into my copy of MLT's Sandpatch. The old B&O Queen City Hotel & Station isn't modeled in MLT's Sandpatch, but is replaced by a smaller Amtrak Station as built after 1972. The West End Route would likely want the old Queen City Hotel-Station, but I doubt the extension is planned to go that far west of the Cumberland yard.

    Midland Texas must be too far from Cumberland, MD? The Patterson Creek cutoff starts westbound a few miles east of Cumberland and then proceeds west, passing Cumberland bya few miles to the south and then rejoins the mainline toward Grafton, a few miles west of Cumberland. If anyone wants it, I may have charts for it but it was abandoned some years ago. Regardless if I have charts or not, I can digitize it, as well as enough of the line east of Cumberland to include it --- but then someone should volunteer to do the Cumberland Terminal - i.e if you want to flagellate yourself to atone from the sin of being a railfan-----like me. If you look carefully at Google Earth you will see that the line going west to Cumberland turns sharply northwest. I roughly traced the cutoff which has one tunnel, perhaps 2, and some interesting bridges. The blue line is my digitizing for the west end route extending to the east end of Cumberland Yard.

    Awesome, I have yet to get to the West End, and the Feather River as well.
    For the Feather River, it would have been nice to have some diesel shops to switch between the roundhouse and the shops. No Shops there Will check it again.

    Can the Keyser turntable also be animated? Will the Paterson Creek Cutoff be completed to the B&O Main and thence westbound to the eastern end of the Cumberland yard? Will the WM eastern extension from Pinto run to the WM Cumberland station and include the WM shops & yard in Ridgeley??

    For those having the Activity Generator Template and B&O West End Template Package, I will be working to have one, switching between the roundhouse and shops in Grafton, pending the official release of the route by Chris. Click image for larger version

    As the author of the B&O West End route, I've started working on it again. Finished placing telephone poles with wires on the whole route, updated and corrected lots of scenery, and now placing prototypical signals from outside Grafton to outside of Dawson, short on Pinto/Paterson Creek Cutoff. Adding a few details to the Western Maryland extension from Piedmont to Dawson. With enough time an energy, I have everything set for extension to Cumberland.
    Wonderful news, you really did an outstanding job on the route and it sounds like it'll get even better. We can get that turntable in Grafton operable down the road
