    Default Majestic Falls Railroad - Upcoming route to be delivered through Steam Workshop

    Just so there is no mistaking - the route will be a bonus route available in the Steam Workshop for anyone who owns Marias Pass and Stevens Pass

    The route will be free, but in order to see anything other than a white landscape with no rails, you will need to have purchased the above DLC (you would also have to swap out all of the stock using RW Tools which is only free for the first 21 uses but is worth every cent ).

    That over, the route, Majestic Falls Railroad, is by Mark Howarth (Mark Judith) who has mainly been over at UKTrainsim where he has developed some small but very representative and accurately detailed UK routes (3 period specific versions of Laneshaw Bridge, a fictional, but very representative line set in Yorkshire, England).

    Majestic Falls is a fictional shortline set in "Anywhere USA" where there are coal tipples, logging, fast rivers and forested hills...

    Still in late development stage, but most areas finished and up for some screenshots.

    Can almost hear the bullfrogs and birds. Will definitely check this out.
    Thanks for the heads-up.
    Interested in all Train-Sims

    Excellent pictures. This could pass as Northern Ontario as well. All that's missing are the swarms of black flies and mosquitoes! Marias Pass and Stevens are two of the best DLC routes so far by RSC so if this one is based off of those it will be good. I love how the rails appear uneven in places which is more realistic than the perfectly level, straight and true that other routes have. Looking forward to this.

    Thank you for the very positive comments . I have only taken shots in the Forbes region of the route so far, and Mark is busy extending it at the moment - so expect more in the way of uneven track!

    Forbes Logging still have two of their four original Shays. Oil burners, originally numbered 3 and 4, when they were rebuilt around 15 years ago they were numbered to 1 and 2.

    The Shays are not just kept for high days and holidays, but form a semi regular part of the roster (with due deference to their age).

    The photos here, however, were taken during a gala appearance when #2, a Class B Shay, hauled a short consist of flatcars and a bobber caboose up to Forbes and #2, a Class C, brought a short consist of disconnects with four full hardwood loads on the downward run.

    Where can one get those Shays? Are those the old BritKit ones and do they still work in TS-2014?

    Yes they are Richard's shays and they appear to be fine in TS2014.
