    Now having a go at doing some local work in the Bakersfield area - spawned in a train which turned out to have 6000 feet worth of local traffic - yikes! That will keep me busy for a while.

    I didn't know that Bruce... even at my age it's sometimes possible to learn something new!

    Anyhow to add to variety, I spawned in a train at the Bakersfield end to do some local traffic there. It...

    The Industry file appears to be correct.

    Now I have just had a similar issue occur on SVMB in the main Trona complex. This time cars which were previously shown as loading with time remaining...

    Yes it does, at both locations. I will check the industry file when I'm back on the game later maybe it has been set up wrong for those locations.

    The only snag I have hit is that a couple of the unloading areas aren't working properly, using the industry config from the depot. The little loading area on the wye at Searles and the SVWP Potash...

    I read somewhere it's one of the few coal fired power stations left in the USA.

    I assume the acid is used for desulphurisation of the furnace and flues.

    As regards potash, presumably a...

    Well Otto (bless him) was never one to be too concerned about realism. Just look at all the routes he butchered over the years putting in return loops everywhere. I also recall him not being too...

    TS20xx is, or at least was, poorly served with regard to desert and arid terrain textures which possibly explains the greener appearance.

    Speed limits are defined by actually selecting the entire...

    Great information James, thanks.

    As regards Trona itself, yes I think you could quickly tie yourself in knots as although there looks to be a lot of space, many of the spurs are quite short. If...

    I must admit to playing a bit fast and loose with the speed limits, especially in the yard areas (fortunately R8 doesn't simulate derailments). On the downhill from Searles to Trona I was running at...

    I'll take a look Bruce, though not that much into TS20xx at present.

    As you say Trainz might be a bet, particularly where the industry objects are concerned and of course car forwarding. Could...

    Yes it's a nice stretch of line and, to me, seems a bit more interesting than the eastern sections out towards to Seligman.

    Once through Searles, there is an equally steep descent towards Trona...
