    Q457 (11hrs in Run8, but not one session)

    After setting up the work order, I started my day at around 5am at Taft West Yard. I think I got the designation current.



    Once assembled, we kick off brakes bound for Waycross. The train had to pickup a cut of autoracks at Sanford and drop them, along with about 15 other cars, at Jacksonville. We were also tasked with picking up a cut there.



    I didn't have trouble in Sanford. However, I had trouble getting some cars to uncouple at Moncrief. It took a couple of tries. I also assigned and decided to keep a mid-DUP. In this picture, we are leaving JAX behind and a train runs through. It was a little after 1pm.





    Of course, I trip a detect detector close to 2pm. It was a hotbox.



    I don't usually take screenshots with the HUD on, but it had been a long trip. Also, I think the HUD replaces feel. You can see on screen what a crew would feel.

    11 hours after starting, I arrive at Waycross. I have a GTX 2070 (didn't want to wait for the 3080) and 10th Gen CPU. My heavily populated yard slowed to 40fps, which is fine.

      Yes. RTX2070. I am use to GTX. I really wanted at 3070 or 3080, but I couldn't find one when I built this system. I intend to install the game on my older GTX980 and hope it runs as smoothly in the yards as it does now.

          The game runs well on my old system. Southeastern Region doesn't have as many trains across all subdivisions as Southern California. I have 25 trains going at any time, pull up in yards and still above 60fps.

          I was wondering how Run8 would do on a real gaming laptop. I tried to use my girlfriend's Acer Nitro5, and the game said, "HELL NO!" I imagine an RTX3000 series would fair better. Cheers to the gaming up. I'm sure you have a beast.
