    This is a great looking railroad.
    Makes me want to pull out "Mixed Train Daily" and get to work.
    Did you do all this using TSRE or MSTS-RE?
    Excellent.

    Thank you all very much!!!

    As is my regular deal, this route will not be released. I share stories and screenshots for the enjoyment of the community in hopes that it will inspire others to create and share their own modeling ventures. As pointed out by another member, there are too many payware shapes and textures in here (some that I've heavily modified) for me to release it.

    Randy, I used the traditional MSTS-RE to extract the route and build the track, but everything else is being done in TSRE. It is now developed enough that there is no need for the original MSTS-RE anymore. I just happened to do the extraction and track laying in the MSTS-RE because I am more comfortable in that.

    Either here in the file library or over on Elvas Tower. I have quite the collection of them from both sites.

    Yeah the open rails lighting looks much better for cloudy environments with as little shadow contrast as there is. I need to become more active over at Elvas Tower, seems like a good bit of the activity in the community happens over there. I've only ever posted there a couple times.

    Its a great community with some really fantastic contributors. Not as large as over here, but just as active.

    More work has been done! Scenery is now complete up to just outside of New Haven Junction. I think I'm going to push to finish up to the junction itself today. I'm starting to test the limits of what TSRE can handle. On one tile, I have 3,500 objects. That number is probably going to grow to 4,000.

    Today we see #6 on a late Afternoon run back up to Bristol with an empty 50' boxcar for coffins and a load of telephone poles for Bristol Public Works. Here they are coming up to the crossing at Town Hill Road.



    Borrowed Vermont Railway van on the end today, on account of our own caboose being OOS after a disagreement with a loaded feed boxcar.



    Taking the curve just before Route 17.



    Drifting through farm country. The town of New Haven can be seen on top of the hill.

    Fall is just a little further along up north, I see.

    So beautiful! And EXACTLY like Vermont landscape.
