    The La Junta sub runs from Newton KS to La Junta Co and closes the missing gap on the ATSF Northern Route between Chicago
    and Los Angeles.
    The Pueblo Sub runs from La Junta CO to Pueblo Co and connects at Pueblo with Don Karchs' Joint DRGW/ATSF line to Denver.
    Both subs are primarily single track operation.
    I have been working on this project for a while and plan to release it in the 1st quarter of 2019.
    That will be a welcome addition to your Santa Fe routes, that will also leave only one gap in the ATSF transcontinental route for both freight and passenger trains. I have the rest of your Santa Fe routes and may I say, they are very well done.

    Thank you!!

    La Junta sub has been missing since Mophouse died, and even when it was around it wasn't up to modern (or even middling) standards having been done very early in MSTS days.

    Wow. it doesn't seem like it was that long ago when I did La Junta. I must say I welcome Bob's effort here. His quality of track work is outstanding.

    That will leave only one missing piece for fans of classic ATSF. That is Pasadena.

    Actually, I have the route and have enjoyed it, though it is a little less polished than Bob's modern stuff. Thanks for building it!

    Pasadena (and, for a modern version, the connecting El Monte Metrolink line) would be a good addition to the collection, as would the "Racetrack" section out of Chicago to Galesburg for Amtrak and Santa Fe passenger fans. Other recent posts suggest that the Racetrack is under active development.

    I have started building what I call the "BigEZ". Basically it's the railroad network in and around New Orleans. The current goal is to take the CSX out to MS Gulf Coast, the NS out to Slidel, LA. I believe it's the CN up to\Hammond, LA. trackage out to Baton Rouge. BNSF out to at least Morgan City. I'm in the process of reworking Michael Vone's Route editing book into a book for TSRE which is what I'm using to develop this route. It's an ambition plan. but it's teaching me a lot about route editing and the inner workings of Open Rails. I have a copy of MSTS but I'm not sure if it works any longer. ....Anyway...that's my plan...

    Colleagues,

    Bob Wirth, like me, is retired from the railroad, in his case ATSF (or BNSF). We demand correct track to the
    extent possible. That is why all of my routes use M-tracks, primarily to get the turnouts correct, but also
    because many exact degree of curves are in the package. I regret that the creator of it did not have more
    curve pieces beyond 10 degrees, or #10 turnouts. I have all of his well done routes and I just wish I was
    more disciplined to know when "enough is enough".

    MSTS should work through Win-10 if properly installed. The only issue is that every time you get one
    of those full updates of Win-10 you will probably have to reload MSTS and any other programs that
    are not "recognized" by Microsoft.

    "I just wish I was more disciplined to know when 'enough is enough'."

    About 40 years ago, when I worked for a typesetting company, before desktop publishing was invented, the supervisor used to say, "The difference between good and good enough is about two hours." :-)

    However, that was for work that was due the same day. Route building takes longer. ;-)

    I like route-building, but I have a full-time job and do volunteer work besides, so many times I go with what's good enough.

    I'm still tinkering on a couple..

    I need to revamp some though, fresh start..

    MEC Mountain Division, from Portland Maine to St. Johnsbury Vermont, including the Quebec Branch.

    VRS Route, includes all of the Vermont Rail System territories. Major points being Burlington, VT to Hoosic Jct, NY, as well as Whitehall, NY to North Walpole, NH all via Rutland, VT.

    And a few smaller routes including the Maine Central Rumford Branch, possibly Portland to Waterville via Augusta, Maine.
