Name of Route: Rocky Islands (for MSTS)

Version and Release Date: 1 (August 2001)

Description: This fictional route consists of a coastal mainline dual-track route for larger trains, and a single-track branch that connects to several offshore islands, suitable for smaller trains. The terrain is rather steep and involves a large number of tunnels and "bridges", including under and over the sea. The only decoration included is trees: there are no tunnel entrances or bridge structures. A fairly complete tour takes about two hours, but there are many routing options and spurs to explore.
