    Default MRL Mullan Pass Official Thread

    This will be my official thread for my rendition of MRL's Mullan Pass route. I will post occasional status updates and plenty of screenshots of the route as it progresses.

    I have been working on this route for a little over a month, and as of today, trackwork is complete from Helena Jct. to a point just east of Elliston and scenery is about 95% complete from Birdseye to the east portal of Mullan Tunnel. My plan is to extend the route to cover the entire subdivision from Helena to Missoula along with a short bit of the branch towards Lolo south of Missoula and possibly the Montana City branch. I am using entirely objects from SLI routes and handmade objects of my own, so there is no chance of a freeware release of this route.

    Now, on to screenshots. This a combination of a couple older screenshots with a bunch of newer ones. Theres a mix of shots from MSTS and OR. First off, some randoms with different trains up around the bridges.

    An export coal train climbs over Greenhorn Gulch.

    An empty Boardman coal dropping downgrade over Greenhorn Gulch.


    Another loaded coal train at Skyline Trestle, also known as Austin Creek Trestle.



    Mid-train helpers coming through the rock cuts below the trestle.

    Helpers on the trestle.


    Now a sequence featuring an eastbound M-PASLAU coming down the hill.

    Lastly, a couple of shots from the Austin Loops.








    Hope you enjoyed! Comments and critique welcome.

    P.S. If a moderator can capitalize the words in the thread title, it would be much appreciated.

    That is some amazing work. I noticed that you said no chance of freeware release. If there's a chance you could work it out with SLI as a payware release, count me in as a potential buyer.

    "entirely objects from SLI routes and handmade objects of my own, so there is no chance of a freeware release of this route."

    Great,so this is a real tease."Look at what I have but I cannot share it".How about releasing it without the shape and texture files of the SLI items but with a list with instructions as to which routes to get them from?
    That would really help those of us without the expertise of route building who would like to see the MRL in MSTS,especially of the obvious quality of this route.
