    Default Norfolk Southern, Anyone?

    I thought I would take a pause with the BNSF & UP and bring in some NS action, Here's a few in from the NCRR Sub near the Greater Charlotte Area with unit #7529 leading a mixed freight...

    Great shots. The only thing I wish was that the Charlotte skyline would show up in the background behind the station and yard like it does in reality.

    Thanks, Steve. I'll see if I can add a few more skyscrapers and offices in the route soon. There's more to come soon, so stay tuned!

    Yeah, I wish for skyscrapers, too!

    I suppose that could happen in a newer version of the route, that I could release long into the future. Or, someone else could release sooner...

    @ dnewmanjr: Are those different crossing signals than what comes with the route? If so, where'd you get 'em?

    Most of the crossings that come standard with this route are from Jovet. I've customized the crossings and flashing textures that you see are from:

    Picture 2, the Safetran gates, bells, Crossbucks, Placards and accessories are ALL from RRXingRick; Cantilevers and flashers are from Jovet,
    Picture 3, the Jovet Cantilever Crossings that are featured on the SeaView Route; Crossbucks and Placard on Mainline are RRXingRick,
    Picture 4, Customized CI Cantilever Crossings featured on Surfliner 1 or 2, Safetran Gates are from SLI Scenic Sub.

    If anybody is upgrading this route. I do know some things about it as I grew up along it and still keep up with it when visiting relatives in NC.
