    The end of February, I hope. I had asked for beta testing results by the end of January, but one more tester volunteered then, so I am waiting for any more reports. It's been a few weeks, though,...

    Thank you. I fixed the sd file, changed the black texture to 16 x 16 pixels instead of 8 x 8 (I'd been using it for 9 years!) and fixed two untextured surfaces. The Sketchup Train Simulator plugin...

    CB&Q Omaha station: any errors?

    I made this model particularly for Todd, who is working on a C&NW route. It continually failed to load until I discovered that the clockface wasn't perfectly square. I fixed that and made a new ace,...

    Some tiles had a water height of 4m on one edge and 0 on the other. OR apparently rendered them as 4m throughout. I changed the water level height to 0 on all four corners, and the flood abated. Low...

    I wasn't aware of this till today when I got a report from a beta tester of RFP3. My old computer tends to crash with Open Rails, but I was able to run an activity in OR far enough to see the Great...

    Nine people kindly volunteered. I guess that should be enough to catch all my mistakes. :-)

    VRE trains and Washington Metro cars

    I have two more demands! ;-)

    In working on RF&P (CSX) activities, I found that there seem to be no available Virginia Railway Express cars appropriate to 2002. Engines, yes: F40 and RP39. But not...

    XP joke

    Eolesen wrote, "I suspect that comment about XP was in jest."

    Oh. Some young adults can't remember Sep. 11, 2001, and XP is from that era.

    Thank you all.

    32-bit XP is an operating system. It was current around when Train Simulator came out (2001). I like it better than the newer versions of Windows, but it can't handle a modern...

    I wanted to finish extending the RF&P to Richmond using the program I know and love and hate, MSTS Route Editor, and I'm almost done. TSRE is recommended, so I decided to give it a try.

    I thought about including Broad Street Station too, even though it would be an anachronism, because it was the Science Museum by 2002, when the route is set.
