    Default Full Bucket Line as non-American route

    Originally, Full Bucket Line is US-route, but some users imagine this route as Australian of South African for example. Also on the file libary of trainsim.com is pack of Australian activities for FBL3. I was made changes to activity "Indian Pacific", adding more diverse rolling stock, modern and historical.

    We arrives to Frampton:

    Interresting. Never thought of that route being Australian. It has been my favorite route for a long time. Could you point me to that Australian activity pack please?

    But in this activity I had to correct mistakes, often traffic trains appears in unnecessary time, when player does not see this trains. Also I added new traffic trains.

    Brilliant! It simply looks "right"! I think the Full Bucket Line is a prime example of the classic MSTS content we can still enjoy, that so many on the forum would dismiss as being of no value, of no importance because it isn't new. And that's just wrong. To use a corporate cliché, you "reimagined" FBL in a great way.

    I was download rolling stock from two Australian sites:

    http://msts.steam4me.net/index.html

    http://coalstonewcastle.com.au/

    Some Australian rolling stock also downloaded from this site.

    Near the Bucket Springs:

    It's a not my idea. On the official FBL site https://www.fullbucket.de/msts/index.html is an interesting inscription:

    The route is arbitrarily placed in the US, but since it is purely fictional, it could be located at any other country/continent with an appropriate countryside (eg. Australia, South Africa, or Hessen/Germany).
    But I can not understand, why desert route may be similar with Germany...
