    Will you also be including the Georges Creek line (Westernport to the 21st Crossing) to connect to the West End past Keyser?

    Default Summit of Alleghenies Reached

    Construction crews managed to lay track to the summit of the Alleghenies, between Altamont and Wilson. Built AM tower controlling the area. Still have lots to do between Oakland and Altamont before really tackling 17 Mile Grade.

    Scenic redo of Oakland continues, thanks to Dave sharing Sanborn maps from the era. This area will now be extremely accurate for the time period. I'm really excited

    As well as accurately representing West Virginia's famous 'export'

    Happy Thanksgiving to all

    Well, I'll take exception to Chris' motto. For me, this true railfan (and retired railroader) has two favorite railroads.

    The L&N and the Milwaukee Road (west of Harlowton, MT)

    Awesome Progress! Can't wait for the route to be released so I can run modern CSX locomotives and trains on it!
