    Gosh, Jerry, you have a lot on your plate.

    I think I've completed all of the track in my "Cripple Creek Railroads" route. The last of it was D&RG dual gauge and ATSF standard gauge between Florence and Canon City, both of which interact with the Florence and Cripple Creek. Now I'm cutting the Arkansas River down there.

    EDIT: Will be available Nov. 23, 2015.

    Don,

    You have done a great historical work with those routes. I particularly enjoy running over Rollins Pass. While on our vacation
    trip to the CATS, Silverton, and SLRG this past Sept., at the gift shop at Great Sand Dunes NM, I picked up a copy of the
    book covering the career of "Doc Suzy". Very interesting. I have the Moffat Road book that Bollinger put out several years ago
    and knew who she was, but the complete story is amazing. I look forward to your Cripple Creek roads - did you think about
    including the Colorado Springs &CC District as well? Back in 1949, my folks took me to the Chicago RR Fair and I remember
    that the narrow gage train that took you from the parking lot to the display area was a real D&RG or RGS engine which was
    renamed "Cripple Creek & Tin Cup RR". It shuttled back and forth on about a mile of track. The F&CC has fascinated me
    ever since.

    Yeah, I got a lot, and some may never be finished. At 76, I'm still peddling along but not as fast as once before.

    A gentle reminder -- this is for routes already under construction.

    Please don't list vaporware or routes you'd like to see but have no intention of building yourself...

    Hi Jerry,

    The route was originally going to be just the CS&CCD, with required interaction with the other Cripple Creek railroads, but it got expanded and renamed. All of CS&CCD, all of the F&CC, and all of the Midland Terminal, but excluding the MT's use of Colorado Midland between Colorado Springs and Divide. I'll also be providing trains for each, including the CS&CC trolleys.

    Here are rough unfinished and not yet named maps:

    Hi Folks,

    Been a fan of the old Clinchfield since the MR project layout on the same... Would nice to see it improved with current techniques...

    Just an OBTW - ORTS just made activity "Events" capable of playing sounds - which seems like a perfect match for custom Defect Detectors...

    Regards,
    Scott

    As Don and others may know, a number of western movie railroad scenes were done on the Silverton. When we rode that one, they
    told us that the cut just north of Rockwood, where the line enters the Animas Canyon, was where many scenes were shot that
    picture someone (either bad or good guy) jumping onto the top of a moving train. You could easily understand that a stunt person
    in reasonably good shape could do this, the top of the cars was probably 5 or 6 feet below the top of the cut walls, and there was
    barely 12' clearlance on either side.

    It is a shame Vince, but this is shutting us MSTS-1 users out by just making the 1950's LIRR a great railroad only in Open Rails

    To my original list, I will now add:

    Milwaukee Road, Coast Division, First Sub. - started and nearly finished by Simon Van de Laak, now he has
    given it to me to finish.

    Virginian from Mullens East - started some years ago, and progressed by Simon Van de Laak, now he has given
    it to me to finish. I decided to make it more complete. His original concept would have been the movement
    of coal (lots of it) from Mullens yard to somewhere near Roanoke. I am in the process of doing the mainline
    west of Mullins to Deep Water, WV (where it connected with the NYC) and adding the N&W from Ingleside
    to Roanoke. Simon had the N&W in place around Glen Lynn, and he has done some of the really fascinating
    viaducts.

    Oops, just noticed the title of the post, "US routes."

    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently-talented fool.
