    BNSF's GP28M/GP28Ps were rebuilt from GP9s and the like, albeit by BN a long time ago. So while they may sell of the older units, it's not quite a certainty. F/SD45s will be interesting to see what...

    The boards are much larger than a lens for any light-based signal. The only time you'd absolutely need to see where a block limit is would be if you had to stop at one, and at that speed, they will...

    I didn't consider that in the readme file... Guess it shows how much I mess with rolling stock.

    Gerry's advice is correct, though

    It downloads appdata from the koniec site where TSRE has historically been hosted. You can also download it there directly if you'd rather. I do that, as my sim computer is offline

    If the original BNSF merger is anything to go by, the MRL blue paint scheme isn't going anywhere soon. In fact, they might get around a bit more

    There is a 'Stick to Everything' mode for the placement crosshairs which will stick to tunnel wall, along with any objects. I think the key command is Shift-Q, but it may take a couple tries.

    Sounds like a good time to introduce you to the steam4me website, with tons of tutorials on mostly MSTS-era files, like .sms files:

    US Grade Crossing Data

    I discovered, a month or two ago, a file deep in the bowels of the FRA's website. It was a spreadsheet containing grade crossing data for every crossing in the US to have existed at any point since...

    Make multiple copies of the .sms files, and change the horns in each copy. Just make sure to change the name of the aliased sound file in the .eng sound lines. I do this all the time

    If you're active on ET, you may want to ask them, since I don't know anything about those long-winded errors regarding crossings. Those look like the old Bruce Bridges shapes, and a his are known to...

    Things built specifically for OR will more than likely not work in MSTS. However, things built for MSTS will most likely work in OR for the most part

    It actually looks like an old SigView-style texture without glow on, instead of OR light glow. It's a relatively simple fix, but I can do it if need be

    An update:

    I got the funny texture issue on the DPGs mostly taken care of. I may go even further on it, but I think it's fine for now. A through-plate design is in the works, albeit in early...

    It could be that the area of the route in question has a limit of 30.

    While MSTS and OR allow route speed limits (using speedposts) to be set for passenger and freight trains specifically, I think...

    I actually couldn't see on my smartphone screen that it was empty, so you probably don't need a buffer on empty rail trains. They may just leave it, though, for simplicity

    Not every clip has a good spot. I've had many that didn't make the cut. I typically zoom way in place cues where the sound waves zero out. My spacing on cues is about 1/3-second

    I think I'll keep any steel thickness less than 3/4" or so as flat and only 3D the big dogs. So far I think the biggest shape (10m I-beam with handrails on both sides) has only two drawcalls, and...
