    Default Announcement - MP Session this Wednesday

    Just a heads up

    Scheduled to run at least 12 hours starting Wednesday 14:00 EDT(18:00 UT, 06:00 SimTime)
    Server OPEN TO ANYONE, bids for specific positions can be made up to 15 minutes before session starts

    TS IS OPTIONAL and I will monitor text as well.
    IP Address for both the server and TS is 173.238.247.145
    Due to security improvements, there will be no password, and all will default to crew status when joining
    Due to the increased length for text you can use initials or alias for identification (Shift F1 name option)

    Yard crews are required between Mojave and Bakersfield, switch lists will be posted to Run8 Network by this time tomorrow
    The yards and industries between Bakersfield and Mojave are part of the RTS system switch lists to be posted
    Specific trains requiring crew change will be posted to the Run8 Network by this time tomorrow
    Anyone can feel free to run Barstow to Boron yards or locals as they wish. A Boron Local was built last session on Main 1 Barstow.
    Anyone can spawn a train below 8000 feet on the mains at Bakersfield, Fleta, Barstow(including departure inspection yard).
    Spawning of any train in the yard tracks at Mojave or Bakersfield requires yardmaster (or dispatcher if no YM) permission.

    Dispatcher will be on duty for the entire session. You can spawn any train on mains listed above without contacting the dispatcher. Please ensure when spawning that another train is not approaching on your track within 2 blocks. You will be required to tone the dispatcher once your underway so that he can give you more signals and track.

    You will require the latest version of Run 8 to participate as well as the free and/or payware expansion packs for autoracks and pigs.

    Further information to be provided later Tuesday on the Run8 Network

    Thanks
