    Well the bad news for some of you is that I have no clue how to paint the ballast, so transfers will be found on all

    Thanks

    Texture file conversioni

    Colleagues,

    I notice that some objects are now showing up using the .dds format of texture files
    which renders them ORTS only and I assume TSRE only as well. I prefer that at least

  8. Bergen Line

    As it happened, I had just seen a "Mighty Trains" video on the Smithsonian Channel

    I decided to include the old line through Burnside, KY because the lake elevation that
