    Default Tennessee Pass Progress

    I am currently placing scenery on the Salida to Pueblo section of the route to get all of the route to the same level of detail. Hopefully the next beta will be released around Christmas time.

    Here the 'Royal Gorge' passenger train is seen just east of Spikebuck

    Hey Jonathan, just want so say thanks for your route, Im actually playing the beta 6 right now, haha! If I remember correctly your the one that made many of the Colorado NG routes for MSTS? As a Colorado (Denver) native (now in Wyoming) I really appreciate your routes since they're in an area I used to live in and know somewhat. Hopefully someday we'll also have a Rollins Pass/Moffat Road in RW, that would be awsome. But since that was in MSTS its nice to have Tennesee Pass in RW now. Atleast RW gave us a nice D&RGW F7 set, even thou the coaches are no California Zypher!

    Anyway, cant wait till you get TP all full of eye candy, it already looks nice. Are you gona put the bridge in over the royal gorge (where the tourist area/overlook is)?

    It was me that made the Rio Grande Southern for MSTS many years ago.

    I plan to have something for the bridge over the royal gorge but I think I will have to model something myself for it sometime.

    Another screenshot for today at Cotopaxi.

    Have a question about a track section in Pueblo Yard. It seems redundant. ( see pic).

    I see what you mean. I tried my best to copy the track layout from Google earth as I have never seen a proper track layout of the yard itself. I will have another look....

    Everyone may of been thinking I had given up! However I've not had that much time recently but I have spent the odd hour here and there working on the route mainly in the more built up areas around Pueblo, Florence and Canon City adding up to some significant progress. I hope to release the next beta version in the next month or so. I think I have finally finished off all track work everywhere including the end of the Monarch branch and the odd siding correction.

    Below are a few screenshots

    It looks like there are two people working on the Tenneesee Pass unless I got confused somewhere in looking at the photos. I know Bob Wirth has said his will be available in a couple of days....maybe this weekend. If both of you have been working on the same route that will make it awfully bad for one or even both of you as some may like one route over the other.
