          Not sure, I do recall Dustin was a huge fan of the FBL to the point he had huge background stories to go along with his screen shots of the steam era and others on the route.
          I think, not positive, he had his own spin on it with commuter stuff too.

          I remember Paul Watson had his own version and ideas for it as well.

            One of my favorites. So many operational options. Would make a great candidate for a modern make-over.

              I have been working on an upgrade for the FBL on and off for the last few months, learning my way around TSRE in the process. the Full bucket has always one of my favorite route as well.

              It is still a work in progress, I started by changing out all of the Terrex textures with ones I created from mixtures of images I found from various internet sources and painting the ROW, updating and changing vegetation, Bridges and new buildings.

                  Nice work you have done in Dunktown! Also nice to to see the terrain changes along the desert, getting a little more greenish.

                  Keep up the good work!

                    Oh hey, that's me! I've barely been around but decided to do my periodic check-in just because. Cool to see I'm still around in the annals of this community, even if it feels like a bygone era to me. I remember Darkhorse was almost as big of a FBL freak as I used to be and I'm loving this makeover. The original is always a guaranteed nostalgia blast and turns me right back into a weird 14 year-old, but it's really something seeing the route with actual vegetation. Would love to try this once it releases!

                    While I'm here, here's my celebratory 10th anniversary screenshot from 10 years ago. Wow. Can't believe you guys are still around.

                      I haven't posted in a few years but I couldn't pass this up. A Bucket fan from way back and have modified it over the years. A couple from Dunktown. And now my pictures don't show. I'm doing something wrong
