    Thanks all. Q-317 this is my second attempt at rebuilding the Hamilton Norfolk route and further development for “real” projects in the future.

      I'm amazed that we're up to almost 80 pages for the year. Keep 'em coming!

          Wow, Andrew. You just raised the bar to incredible heights. Beautiful work. Realism with a capital "R".

            I wish someone would do a really good upgrade on the Sandpatch route its definitly needed it for a long time.

              Pretty sure TS is working on a sandpatch route behind the scenes, so it's probably better to wait for that.

                Thanks Larry. In regards to a new Sandpatch, yes it is still in development. Really, it is the primary reason I've been working on the new east coast oriented terrain/vegetation textures so they can be incorporated into that route specifically.

                  Andrew, picked up the CNW set and has some fun with your cars, adding reflective tape and some random graffiti

                    I really like your touch of realism (i.e. reflective stripes and graffiti), Neil. Looks great. I've got that set as well. One of these days I'm going to have to learn how to make those additions!

                      Nice! Looks great Neil, graffiti suites those rust buckets well.

                        May be bad, but does help ID The car(s) within a Route or Routes. There's a few Cars( mostly those types ) around here that get Interchanged between ATN & NS. The only way to tell It's The same car's The Graffiti left on it( doesn't have much though ).

                            Those SD40 units look pretty sweet! I have similar projects I'm working on myself, based off of TS and Tyler Bundy models. Are you keeping them in the era of straight 40s, or "upgrading" to -2 standards?

                            I also did some repaints of the TS CSX SD60 from the CSX Trainset Vol 1 into various SD50s some time ago. I just kept them personal because 1) I haven't kept up with licensure laws and 2) I haven't messed with the physics to make them perform like true SD50s

                              Those shots are amazing andrew. Wonder if those SD40s will be used in the TS sandpatch route.

                              And maybe, just maybe, you could convince the guys at TS to include a C30-7 in that route too. Would definitely fit the era.

                                C30-7s and U boats would be fantastic
