    Any news reguarding Updates on this nice Route?

    When you are busy with life and work these things get put aside. Just curious about a time-frame for the next installment.

    Hmm...I'll have to get started on your signals again. I'll probably PM you an update sometime this weekend when I have a chance to sort through it

    I am not able to find a list of rolling stock necessary to run the activities. Does one exist? If so where can I find it?

    Look in the route's Docs folder for _Readme.rtf. Good info on this work in progress route, including the equipment required.

    The Eureka Road Viaducts in Wyandotte have finally been set up. Five viaducts were built in 1927 as part of a larger project to widen Eureka to a 120-foot width, for an unconceived eventual widening to 204 feet, including a rapid transit subway line in it's median. The westernmost viaduct was built to carry the Detroit, Monroe & Toledo Short Line interurban railroad, which was shut down in 1932, long before this route's timeframe, and converted into a pedestrian bridge to connect residential blocks on either side of Eureka:

    That looks very nice. Route building "technology" and abilities seemed to have advanced quite a bit. One thing in so many routes of the past were viaducts/overpasses that were too ridiculously high over roads and trackways. Your pic above looks very natural.
    Good luck with your progress!

    This morning, I completed all of the trackage within the BASF plant in Wyandotte, and it should be a fun switching challenge. For extra realism, I whipped this SW9 repaint up in about 10 minutes:


    Two numbers were done, which are 8922 (pictured) and 8971, the same numbers used for Railserve's actual SW9s that are assigned to BASF Wyandotte. These are used only for in-plant switching, any moves out of the plant are done with a tri-weekly Conrail local that runs out of River Rouge Yard, termed "Trenton 3".

    Look for these in the next public alpha upload, and maybe by themselves in the file library as well.

    Just found out about this rout in progress.... I must say looks very interesting. I would like to do a gameplay video on this route, when completed ofc.
    One thing i would like to point out, was looking at trakviewer and ist seems that Detroit is on south side and Toledo on north. By looking at the map, it should be reversed. Detroit is north.

    I am looking forward to play this one.
