  1. As a general reply, the team at TrainSimulations...

    As a general reply, the team at TrainSimulations already has a laundry list of several in-progress routes, and none of them are on the BNSF Transcon. This is simply because we are each working on...

    Hi Duncan,

    Yes, Mullan Pass is my route project. To clarify, while it did start out more like you describe, I am now more or less "officially" part of the TrainSimulations team. However, that does...

    Personally I think there is a giant gap in the monster double diesels of the 60's/70's. The only U50, U50C, DD35A, DD35, etc. models we have are 15 to 20 years old at this point, and are... less than...

    As far as I know, we (TS) have not seriously looked at doing the Edson Sub. Personally, I have very loosely looked at the CN route west of Jasper, but that never went much beyond planning stages. I...

    Same route, the Mullan Pass I've been making will be released through TS. :) Engines and rolling stock are nearly complete, and I am putting finishing touches on the route. Soon I will be making the...

    Without OR, Mullan would require dramatically thinner, less realistic scenery, the trains would have less realistic physics performance (we have spent a lot of time getting realistic tractive effort...

    As mentioned above, Mullan is rapidly approaching release. The rest of the team tends to show significant interest in the Midwest and East (and the West as well), but my interests have always been...

    Awesome awesome awesome! I was seriously considering doing this route myself at some point (albeit just the modern Distrito Acultzingo mountain portion) but very glad to see someone doing the whole...

    It's not to say that they are "cutting back" power once they get to the mountains. CP just tends to put the bare minimum power on trains to get up their ruling (steepest) grades, often around 10 MPH...

    Have to agree with Vince here. I just looked a Laggan Sub timetable from 2012, there is a list of VERY detailed rules regarding what to do if any emergency application occurs... On a loaded train...

    Sounds like a cool project. I was not aware of MILW using searchlights on the main, but perhaps I've seen pictures and I just didn't think about it.

    While it will take a bit more work, I would...

    Hi everyone,

    Just FYI, this project is far from dead. The team at TrainSimulations was focusing on pushing out the OR version of Seligman, but it is clear to us that Mullan is one of the main...

    In setting up dark territory meets, are there hidden signals, or truly no signals at all? Do you have to create passing paths, or just route the two opposing paths down the main, and the OR...

    I agree my wording was rather unclear. When I said "we", I was referring to the community here on TrainSim.com, NOT TrainSimulations. I am in no position with regards to TrainSimulations to discuss...

    Geoff,

    I am not able to comment much, because I have not bought any of the packs with newer OR physics. I have run the Empire Builder Amtrak set and I don't recall it being wildly off on braking,...

    Is this braking issue solved for you by simply increasing the brake charging rate, which is an option on the very first tab, "General" under options in the Open Rails Menu? Or is it more complex than...

    There are a few no longer available, but a lot of them are not grouped together with other old packs into a single package. We may be able to assist you if you can list specifically which ones you...

    Austin,
    I am intentionally holding back a release date for the route, so all I can say is "soon". Work on the route itself is probably around 98% complete at this point, but there are still a few...
