    Due to flooding on BNSF's Hi Line in summer 2012, BNSF began sending a high number of eastbound trains over their Shelby to Laurel mainline and prevented unnecessary westbound moves on the route. As...

    Have probably seen a dozen or so rattlesnakes throughout the years while taking photos along the railroad. About half of those I've seen in the rugged Palouse Canyon between Joso Bridge and Hooper on...

    Sounds like you are using the correct version and your RAM should be sufficient. See if you have the "Logging" option checked in the OR options, and then attach the text Log file that is produced...

    Yup, BCLW was the main team working on it. I definitely miss BCLW, used to be one of my favorite forums to hang out on many years ago.

    This sounds like what happens when you do not enter Manual Mode on the player consist prior to swapping to the helpers.

  11. What Ever Happened to the MSTS BC Rail Route?

    Almost a decade ago (last posts I see on it are from 2013), a team had still been developing a route covering BC Rail all the way from North Vancouver to Prince George. It seemed like the route was...

    You're welcome! My recommendation would be to try out the activity using the Stable version of OR first. It is quite common that intermediate versions (both the unstable versions and the Monogame...

    Have you confirmed whether your OR settings match what was recommended in the Mullan Pass manual? Particularly your adhesion correction percentage, etc. What version of OR are you using? And what...

    Hey ngc,

    I think Chris's message was intended as a heads up, considering he is part of the TS team :) Shasta is primarily "my" baby, while Chris has the La Grande Sub and Sandpatch. The main...

    Thankfully Chris and I are building routes in complete opposite corners of Oregon so our competing track-building crews won't be able to get in any fights with one another. ;) Since 1989, there have...

    Hi Denis,

    This westbound train is actually dropping downgrade towards Dunsmuir. Very heavy air set and dynamic brakes roaring! The majority of tonnage on this route is "westbound" as SP called it...

    Thank you Wade for the info on the crew transports! I'll try to look into whether they were used out of Dunsmuir and/or Klamath Falls in the mid 90's.
