    Well that’s definitely a nice choice for a heritage livery.

    Yeah its "heritage" unit for my fictional railroad. Based off the CB&Qs faux BN paint scheme.

    Kicking the dust off the Whitefish 4 route. Needs an overall with signals and crossing gates (out of my ability) and the obvious swap to scalerail, depending on how much dynamic track this route uses...

    It's not the latest from TS, but it's not bad for its age.

    I, for one, very much appreciate the efforts of talented creators--creators that have talents that I sadly lack. One of the few ways that many people have to contribute, other than saying thank you, is a monetary contribution, but there are not very many good avenues to do that, even if, for example, to be able to make a monetary contribution to a charity of the creator's choosing if that was an acceptable monetary "thank you." In your case, Shawn, you have made many fine reskins, etc. for the sim and I am quite grateful. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for your contributions.
    I mean, don't get me wrong, there are still a good few folks here that do show their appreciation one way or another, and the amount of gimmie pigs have worn off.

    It was just a massive amount that left a bad taste for a lot of people, plus, a lot of those that contributed, have moved onto families or life in general. With the small amount of projects here and there.

    Only reason I stick around is to see what comes next from guys like Sean, Andrew, Chris or Erick. My skills and patience has worn off, so I don't really do much of anything anymore. I can't even really remember the last time I even turned on my computer..

    Taking a step back from releasing or doing anything in general, I have definitely noticed this trend more than I did when I released and did anything in general.

    Personally, I've noticed it's a lot easier to just work on stuff and release to a small circle of folks, that show their appreciation, or even help in general with research or contributing things themselves, and I completely understand why many do just this.

    Great route modifications. Gets me in the mood to run some florida east coast! (except I don't know what I can run and where I can run them at).

    I'm greatly appreciative of the kind words, I personally would love to share many of the things I've created over the years as none of the creations would've been possible without the knowledge that has been passed on from this community when I first started out. I'd greatly give it away for free, however since just about every shape you see me post is completely modified from the source files I had access to, it's not as simple as sharing the textures.

    With that said, there's a lot of potential to see fantastic things from the guys on the ground at TS, the talent you see from tarrant75, PerryPlatypus, and rrdiesel87 makes my jaw drop. Being friends with those guys, I can tell ya that there's plenty of releases in the pipeline to be excited about.
