    My Run8 Journal

    . . . and pics. A Journal of thoughts, opinions and pics as I experience the development of Run8. I have read enough threads on all the gripes and opinions. Played most train-sims in the past and have decided on Run8 good or bad. People said in 2012 it wouldn`t be here but in [2017] -edit. it clearly still is. Always loved trains. Just having fun.

    Seems to be a washout at Slover just before Colton.

    Switching Tankers

    One tap on the "Indy" brake and the coupler slaps the knuckles all the way down.

      Crossing the Mains

      Switching points and running over frogs with throaty locomotives seems mundane yet overwhelmingly addictive.

          Running Dynamics

          The 2.2 decent to Cajon. If you mess up once your done. No stopping her. This one is in multi-player. You can see in the cheat bar (shift-z) the weight and specs of the train. 15-30 mph all the way down in about an hour. I get better frames in MP because I have too many trains in my SP sandbox.

          Note: The images are much sharper in the sim.

            Intermodal at Dusk

            Mojave is gorgeous at dusk. It really is. Can`t quite put my finger on why this sim is so appealing to its adherents.

            Note: These pics were taken during a real-time multi-player session.

              Running into the Night

              No coffee in the dash holder while climbing through the tunnels near Cable before Tehachapi loop.

                EMD SD70 ACe

                Looking forward to the New EMD SD70 Ace units. GE will have to share the throne with EMD in Run8. Notice the increased detail on the pilots, cabs, etc.

                Note: Notice the empty spot on the Run8 page [which might be] for the coming new units.

                  Yeah, they are working on SD45's and Tunnel motors. Last from Run 8 was that they are not releasing until V2 but that was when they were releasing V2 in the spring. Now they are releasing in the fall so who knows.

                    SD 45`s and Tunnel Motors

                    I hope they have a few weathered versions like this.

                        Glad you enjoyed your time on Mike's server. I see you caught parts of our conversation about some formulas copying over or something to that nature Wednesday night. I'll be heading on shortly. He's done a great job with the server since taking over from me. Very nice pictures by the way! Wish I could fix Action as it's broken and I haven't been able to take videos all week now

                        Thanks

                          Friday Night Ops

                          Yes. It was fun. The dedicated supporters of the server were having fun with some live streaming action while running in the sim. So I decided to record a few moments.
