    Intermodel train M141 CHI-BIF is lead by MN 5063 is going to Brampton Intermodal Facility via the Dundas Sub. When arriving at Aldershot however it will make a quick stop to cut-out the five CanTran newly painted and rebuilt P51ACR-3s. These are coming from Midwest Locomotive Works shop down in Centralia which were shipped up north the Chicago just a few days ago in preparation to head East.



    Here's a better shot taken weeks ago of the very first overhauled P51 804. 804 is already on CanTran site and is currently sitting in CanTran's Mimico Yard awaiting testing.

    Paint scheme looks familiar.

    Very nice shots there Ross. I'm trying to pinpoint the route - South Oz thereabouts with some scenery tweaks or your own route creation?
    Cheers,

    I apologize the scene in this photo is rather bare, I haven't gotten to this section yet for scenery, just wanted to get a quick grab before I fall asleep. 2am shift is starting to get to me.

    Anyways..
    The order of four SD70M-2's have made it to the WMRC, Passing through East St. Johnsbury, an SD70M-2, SD30ECO(2x), SD70M-2 lash up, pulls two offline SD70M-2's, 36 loads, and 14 empties over the Mountain Division. 401 and 403 will be "turned" in Portland so that they face west rather than east.

    I just like to modify all the routes I use, to a more subtle textures. Also enhance the environments.
    Often the changes make the routes almost unrecognizable from the originals.
    This is why I stick with MSTS because it's achievable in that environment.
    I find these modifications make them more pleasing to me,
    I'm not so fussed if the HP of the engine is correct or not.

    Ross, I always enjoy your scenery shots, a pleasant break away from the front of a loco at high noon shots. I share your thoughts of modifying routes and environments, I don't think I have one route I haven't done the same and find it one of the more enjoyable parts of the hobby..

    Nice shot, Ross. Now, hurry up and put a penny on the rail before the train gets there!!!
