    Smile My Run8 Journal

    . . . and pics. A Journal of thoughts, opinions and pics as I experience the development of Run8. I have read enough threads on all the gripes and opinions. Played most train-sims in the past and have decided on Run8 good or bad. People said in 2012 it wouldn`t be here but in [2017] -edit. it clearly still is. Always loved trains. Just having fun.

    Seems to be a washout at Slover just before Colton.

    Default Switching Tankers

    One tap on the "Indy" brake and the coupler slaps the knuckles all the way down.

    Default Crossing the Mains

    Switching points and running over frogs with throaty locomotives seems mundane yet overwhelmingly addictive.

    Default Friday Night Ops

    Yes. It was fun. The dedicated supporters of the server were having fun with some live streaming action while running in the sim. So I decided to record a few moments.

    Default Riding The Left Seat

    I had a chance to jump aboard with another MP and relax on the way through Mojave sub. Stand close to tracks squarely facing the rail while pressing F11 (repeatedly) when the engine pilot (stairwell) intersects with your avatar.

    Default Humping at Dusk

    I have been learning and working the hump yard in SP. Nice and relaxing way to wind down after work.

    The car tags (Ctrl F8 twice) designate which track they go to as entered in the (Ctrl-F6) window you activate when close to the hump shack. i.e. You enter the tag on the car (ABC). Enter (ABC) in the track column, in the Hump yard window. When you push the cars at (CTRL-C) for sustained slow speed (2 mph) over the hump, they automatically uncouple and the cars roll gracefully into their classified track. Very cool. What other train sim genre does that?

    Note: Run8 is the model railroad I could never afford to have or find the time to build. (Even though I do have a small HO flat switching module). Maybe I`ll sneak a few peeks in next week.

    Even then, a prototypical hump yard that actually works is an intimidating challenge for anyone in the railroad hobby. Besides, most model railroaders spend most time alone in it. Which is fine. However, if you want a community to run in, them jump into MP and learn the curve at your leisure. Run8 serves the virtual railroader in spades.

    P.S. Yes, I do like CN SD40-2`s.
