      Dale here... Just stopped by to say, "Much thanks to everyone." Wanted everyone to know how things are going... I had over 1,600 visits on Sunday and another 1,600 visits on Monday. All of that makes going back to work on the Route worth the effort. A sincere thanks to the folks at TrainSim, Elvas Tower, and OpenRails for getting the word out. Hope to see you at http://www.siskurail.org...

      ** Hey, everyone! Long time no see! So let me get right to it... this has been a tough
      ** decision to make but I am going to make available (for free) some work that I did for
      ** SLI. It has been over 2 years since I have received payment for the work I completed.
      ** And my models continue to be used and re-used without the compensation that was agreed
      ** upon. Not trying to air out dirty laundry - just giving a back story and explain the
      ** reason for this. The stipulations of our agreement were that I maintain the rights to my
      ** work but SLI has the right to sell the work as well... So I am taking the work I did and
      ** giving it away. I'm not get paid anyway.
      **
      ** I won't be uploading the files here though. Just PM me and let me know what you want! The
      ** files won't contain physics files or sounds. Just the model and textures.
      **
      ** I will also be making available the work that I did for MSTS2 (that SLI is also currently
      ** selling without notifying me or compensation)... just need to get the models exported.
      **
      ** I have no other recourse as my attempts to contact SLI has gone unanswered.
      ** Thanks and happy new year!
      **
      ** And just so I am clear and to reiterate - I do have the rights to do with these models
      ** whatever I wish. I'm not saying SLI wasn't given permission to sell and redistribute them,
      ** I just have not been payed as agreed. And I am only offering the MSTS export files.
      ** Not source files.
      **
