    Graphics seem slightly improved with update 7.

    Mike....from the update note on their download page:-

    The 7th update adds a mo-betta distant terrain system for the southern california routes which came out very cool! Reefer and autorack cars have been added to the AI traffic generation of mixed intermodal trains. And also fixed an issue wih the RailDriver and alerter button. There is a few more things added including more scenery in the Bakersfield area and some other squawks that were reported. Thank you for your feedback we really do appreciate it.

    Hi Bruce, i re-installed Run 8 this morning buddy.

    Does look improved, so i am hoping to get the new Bakersfield Sub on Friday.

    Apart from the slightly "old world graphics", it is the only train game worth having installed.

    In my opinion, of course Bruce.

    Mike, if & when you get your hands on Bakersfield-Sub, you'll need to follow-up with reinstallation of update7. That same method goes for any fresh install /reinstall of CA-subs. update7 needs to follow if wishing to take advantage of latest tweaks.

    Hang about, Scott!
    Are you saying that the installation sequence should be Bakersfield and THEN update #7....that the update needs to be installed last, after a new route is installed?

    I installed the update before the Bakersfield add-on, so maybe I'm not seeing any changes?
