    I would assume whatever the region is, it will probably support the BNSF or SP on the west coast. But I have been wrong before. Donner Pass or an equivalent does sound plausible.

    I should also mention none of the screen-shots are "photo-shopped." They are all carefully selected vanilla Run8 @ 4K.

    Cement Haul To Yermo

    This is the empty coal car, and full cement drag, back to Yermo from Oak Creek via Mojave. She was heavy and I did break a few couplers on the trip up the summit when I had to stop over to check a...

    Switching Oak Creek

    Some switching and the haul back to Mojave Yard.

    Note: The SD-40-2 (FECR) is a long way from home. But then we see these anomilies now and again in the real world.

    Yeah. It is a huge learning curve for sure.

    This is a good point. I never thought of the unloading procedure as well. I never realized you could do that in Run8. It appears there are two unloading troughs for coal.

    With the system you have now you could run Orbiter 2016 with the 3D3 wrapper. The HD textures will blow you away if you care to load them and have the room. Orbiter is an incredible space simulator....

    Good Morning Mojave

    I can Run8 and manage operations. I heard someone say, “For solo-play, all that is needed to overcome a “busy Barstow” is a pause button.” I agree with the latter when it comes to the former....

    Waycross looks to be a nice piece of work. I wish I had the time to run it. SoCal has all my time. I do have A-line though and remember it well. Good stuff.

    I must confess there are times when Run8 appears to be an ugly duckling.

    Times like this occur when one hovers three hundred feet above the trains at high noon in a flat rural area. Run8 is not a...
