    As for braking times, I am pretty sure Mullan's stock was adjusted to have substantially quicker charge rates - but I'm not certain of that. I can go and find out for sure, if you want to know.

    I actually think that it would be nice if OR had a checkbox for "simple brake connections" for people who don't want to bother with hooking up brake hoses, angle cocks, etc. That said, the simple...

    Having that many running locomotives on the head end of a train is an almost guarantee for a coupler break going up a 2.2% grade like that :) Typically you'll have no more than 4 units running on the...

    Ah, an Oregon Trunk Route, now that sounds interesting! (Would be a great place to run BLW's SP&S Pack - we have been sorely in need of a quality SP&S route with good quality trackwork).

    Hi Jerry,

    You're correct that there's already a freeware Tennessee Pass/Royal Gorge route. The quality of trackwork in it is pretty good, but the scenery quality in general is very sparse/"plain"....
