    Cool Would there be any interest ----

    Colleagues,

    As I have attained the age of 80, and most of my ancestors didn't make it past
    88, although my father made it to 96, it is not likely that many of the routes in
    my bucket list will ever be done.

    Therefore, I am wondering if there would be any interest on the part of experienced
    route creators to flesh out & detail routes for which I have done the track and most
    roads as well as providing most bridges & track related details. I think most of you
    have my routes, especially those from the RMD-1 (RMD-EAST) and later will agree
    that I do the track well. This is because I was manager of track inspection on the
    Southern Railway from 6/67 to 8/78.

    The routes I already have taken to this level are the Big Sandy South, (C&O/CSX)
    which includes all coal branches south of Paintsville, KY. and the Milwaukee Rd.
    Great Falls Line. (electrified at the east end, Harlowton yard area) These routes
    would require more roads.

    Other routes for which I have researched the details, created the route & did
    the terrain generation but need track & roads:

    Eastern Kentucky (L&N/CSX)
    Camas Prairie
    MRS Logistica Steel Route (Brazil, Ore Hauler)
    MRS Logistica Port connection (Brazil, Ore Hauler)

    Other routes:
    Clinch - Appalachia -- NS in the southwest VA & KY coal fields.
    Milwaukee Road Rocky Mtn. Div. (non-electrified, Harlowton to Miles City)
    Milwaukee Road Aberdeen Div. (Miles City, MT to Mobridge, SD)

    Rick,

    I forgot to put that one in the list. Also two others. In doing the Main Stem
    (which is what the L&N called it) I included both routes into Nashville. Not
    likely anyone will try to duplicate Radnor Yard, but the line to it will be
    included.

    L&N Henderson Sub. Evansville, IN to Nashville & I have the diagram for the two
    main bridges on this line, Ohio R. & Green R.

    And

    L&N (NC&StL, CSX) Chattanooga Sub. which include the Sparta Branch which
    includes the coal mines that died around 1930. The Tracy City Branch,
    Sequatchie Valley Br. & Huntsville Br. All of these branches are gone except
    the Sparta Br. as far as Sparta which is now a short line.

    I haven't done the track/roads on any of these but I have prepared the
    route.

    I would think someone might have an interest in some of these. I've started on BNSF Hi-Line Sub. and will probably do all the infrastructure before handing it off for someone to do scenery. I have no idea whowould, but I really don't care - scenerywas never my favorite thing

    I don't mind doing scenery, but I acknowledge that is not my area of good expertise. All you
    need to do, to prove this, is compare the RMD-1 with the RMD-EAST, i.e. the relevant parts.
    It is also very time consuming. I can do infrastructure on a fairly complex route in a few
    months, and then take years to do the rest, and I'm running low on years.
