    Fantastic looking screen shots!

    That PCI line looks like a section along the Madawaska Sub between Millinocket and Oakfield.
    That's a rework of the LS&I that Jeff Mack did a while back. It's hardware intensive, but it is AWESOME!

    So let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet, to see the king of the potato people... and plead with him for your freedom, and you're telling me you're completely sane?

        Park Hill Junction. I am so sorry I never got my hands on that. If I remember correctly, it was rather ahead of the curve at it's time. The author did some really cool stuff with that route.

          It was a miserable and rainy spring day, but not having managed to get out all winter and hearing that the SAR was going to run a ballast train up the Turin Sub to Picture Butte, it made it a worthwhile endeavor to head out. I didn't realize that they'd leased a few GP40M's over the winter, and it looks like they put a pair on with an RMT and an SAR GP40-2. Seventy ballast hoppers made for a loud departure from Kipp as they crew tried to start the train, but once onto the branch, the four units made relatively light work of it.

                I loved them more as lead units on regular freight trains, because it used to upset the railfans that red units weren't leading at VRS.. Personally, they were in a lot better condition than 95 percent of the VRS owned fleet...
                now I can't stand them as lead units, been too spoiled by the comfortable cabs of the SD70M-2 fleet. Heck, I'll even take a clapped out SD40-2 as a lead units now versus the leased GP38-2 or GP40-2 fleet. Haha.

                By the way, I should have these locomotives uploaded in the library by Wednesday. Thursday at the latest!

                    Couple of shots on the Piedmont route. Change out the terrtex and add a little more depth to the scenery, and this route is a total winner. The guy did a great job!

                        I haven't done anything yet, that's "straight out of the box".
