      NS still does that in Attalla,Al @ The Yard Office/Depot. Although PSR & PTC, The Crew'll still stop The Train despite that for PaperWork & such if not Switching.

          Ironed out the train meet issues, so here are more screenies. Doubt this activity will be released, for one, the route is extremely dated, and two, I used a lot of rolling stock that would require several payware items and more than 20 freeware downloads..

            Shawn...nice shots, its good to blow the dust of the classics once in a while.

            Speaking of classics, here is some of the more crusty CSX GP30Ms I've been working on.

              Thanks Andrew, I'm slowly going through and swapping the tracks out for ScaleRail and some of the roads for ScaleRoads as well, adding some textured ballast along the right of way. I did swap out some tree textures already, but eventually would like to swap out all the vehicles and do some other fine tuning.

              Boy, that GP30's look fantastic, of course, I'm partial to the RDMT versions like we have.

                  Cool, I never had KHP (Im assuming thats the route pictured) but im sure a good ROW and a bunch of trees will go a long way there. Also, I would love to be able to do some Slugs on the newer GP30 shape but it would need quite a bit of modification to start. Maybe one day..

                    Yeah, that's the one from Maple Leaf Tracks, it was one of the very first routes purchased, along side the D&H Bridgeline and SP Cascades Crossing. All three are still one of my all time favorites.

                    I'm thinking the heavy use forest regions may come into play for sure!

                      I'd love to see updates for KHP and SP's Cascade route. I'd like to run Cascade's more, but it's showing it's age...

                        I agree, would be really nice, however, the heavy use of Dynamic Tracks on both routes is a killer when it comes to upgrading to USTracks or Scalerail. Scenery wise, adding more forest regions, swapping vehicles, adding ROW ballast, and even brush/shrubs along the ROW, would be a game changer alone.

                        A loaded BNSF Grain Train makes its way west after picking up mid train helpers at Helena Jct.




                        Eastern Maine Railway train 907 rolls over the Piscataquls River in Seboeis Plantation, bound for Brownville Jct. I remember learning that river name in elementary school many many years ago, do this day I just simply call is Pis-Cat-Aqua. Shrugs. I also need to add way more rust texture to that nose like the real thing...
