Known Problems: Not really a problem but... The route was built with Open Rails in mind. It does work in MSTS just fine but heavily populated tiles will put a strain on you frame rate. Open Rails is still a work in progress, so things like terrain covering parts of super elevated curves is not something I can correct.
