    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...

    I saw that earlier actually Bruce, had a flicker of anticipation until realising it was effectively just a blank canvas.

    At this point probably better to start from scratch in TSRE if I was going...

    I realised after I got going I hadn't started up the 2 GP40's so it was a bit slow but the SD45's made it up the bank and through the tunnel into...

    It is good in Run 8 because you have the interactive industry spurs and car forwarding, but in MSTS the main attraction is going to be the big pull up Searles Bank.

    Mojave - Searles - Trona

    Currently enjoying working this route in Run 8, but am I correct in thinking it has never been done for MSTS or OR?

    It's a lovely line but think I needed to put more power on my train, 2 x GP40 for 2.2 Hp per ton just isn't cutting it on the 1.75 up to Searles. Down to 10 MPH with constant sanding, luckily there...
