    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...

    Niknak,

    There are many things on Mullan that are not perfect (if I had tried to aim to be perfect the route would've NEVER gotten released) but just as an FYI: There are a LOT of spur tracks along...

    Great to hear! And it's actually nice to hear that my work on Mullan inspired you to pursue ScaleRail. ScaleRail has a few downsides (the main one for me personally has been lack of curved turnouts),...

    I can almost guarantee there has never been a schedule to coal train operations in the Powder River Basin. Coal demand fluctuates, the return timing of empty trains from around the country into the...

    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.

    Mike - geology is always an interesting topic...

    The route is called the La Grande Subdivision for a reason, not the "La-Grande-plus-half-of-the-Huntington-Sub". :) Hinkle to La Grande covers one full crew district (terminal to terminal). East of...

    Austin,

    Hinkle, Oregon to La Grande, Oregon, over the Blue Mountains (northeastern corner of the state). 2.2% grade on east side, 2% on west side. Chris' route will be set circa 1989, which will...

    Thanks again all!

    Tim - Very cool, glad to hear someone who has worked the territory is impressed with the route thus far! Just in case it isn't clear - my route covers Dunsmuir to Black Butte to...

    Yes, the engines in this set use include lines.

    You can use the engines on any route that functions within Open Rails, NOT just routes that were specifically designed for OR. So you can use them...

    Thank you all :)

    Austin - The goal is definitely to meet or exceed Mullan's scenery quality. I am trying to focus on aspects that I personally feel were weaknesses in Mullan and improve on those...

    Eric - Essentially all the sage brush in these screenshots are forest regions. I am using individually placed objects for some vegetation, but 99% of trees and bushes are part of forest regions.

    Happy New Year all! A few progress screenshots of recent work on the route... First, on the relatively dry east side of the Cascades, a westbound PTPCX blasts upgrade on a chilly, foggy morning...

    Accurate physics and realistic operations are top on my priority list for a train sim. That alone ordinarily would've made me pick up Run 8 in a heartbeat, and yet here we are so many years later and...

    My wish list:
    High quality U-boats, including the regulars like U30C's, and also the oddballs like U50's and U50C's
    High quality EMD DD35 and DD35A's
    High quality SD90MAC-H II's (notch nose)...

    Peter, feel free to PM me if you'd like detailed information on Scenic Sub operations. The only thing I would not have good info on are some of the local trains in the Everett area, but I can provide...

    As far as missing buffers/bumpers - a picture is worth a thousand words. Hard to get an idea of what you're talking about otherwise, as I've never heard anyone else with that issue. I think there's a...

    Geoff, if the above doesn't work, I'd suggest searching using the term "Bogie", as that's what they are called in MSTS/OR shape file structure.

    Couple possibilities I can think of for Lurker's confusion. They could be thinking of either Columbia Falls or Kootenai Falls, both of which are in Montana. Whitefish 10 has trackage in western...

    This line definitely has lots of history to it, so intriguing questions. :)

    Backdating the Shasta route to the 1950's would take time, but not impossible (it's nothing I plan on doing, but maybe...
