    I remember your routes from over at Mophouse. I wish I would have grabbed them when I had the chance. Are you still into route building?

    Hi 'ya Codeman!

    Good to see yer still kickin'. Nice to see yer still messin' with V scale too!

    I'm in a V scale slump, but I figure the V scale fever will get flung on me again "one of these days".

    Merry Christmas to you from an old V scale acquaintance!

    I really wish everything from Mophouse's file library was on TrainSim's file library. It happened with many of those vintage rolling stock packs and many of those double stacks but not the SDP40 and SD70ACE by Dwight Miller, the SLSF U25Bs, the SLSF autoracks, those mechanical reefers like from BAR and GN, and some of the doublestacks (notably the APL set)

    Are you referring to the SLSF 4 bay Auto racks? 109.jpg

    That looks to me like a half million dollars worth of Ford Mustangs.

    Thanks to those of that shared kind words concerning my past efforts.

    We did have a lot of fun. Those were indeed exciting times: V scale as a hobby was in its infancy.

    Today's route builders are building some extremely nice looking routes. Whereas in the "glory days" my efforts were pushing the standards upwards, that is no longer the case. Except for my above average skills at track work, my scenic skills within MSTS/OR have fallen well behind the curve. To get up to speed in the scenic realm would require a formidable amount of learning as well as (likely) learning/acquiring new software programs/etc. I have several interests to divide my time among, and V scale is now just a very small part of it. Also, with the advent of the OR "Timetable" feature, that would require much more learning in order to accomplish the things I would want to accomplish in that aspect of V scale.

    I was on a V scale roll immediately after I retired from RR-ing in April of '18. I actually finished a proto-lanced route to the "beta" state, and shared it with any interested via my "Route Ramblin's" thread over at Elvas Tower. I then went to work on my 1869 era "New England Lines" route project and finished up the track work in Bellows Falls, laid the Rutland & Burlington rails from Bellows Falls to Rutland, then after that laid track for a completely new North Arkansas route from Seligman, MO to Leslie, AR with the intention of eventually completing the line on up to Joplin, MO, and down to Heber Springs, AR. Two complete divisions. In the process I've released textures/etc, as freebies to any interested.

    IF you're not a part of Elvas Tower, and if you have a the least interest in any of the above, behooves you to sign up at ET and browse my LONG thread running there called "Route Ramblin's". Lots of free stuff has been made available as well as a LOT of V scale (and other interests) BS, too boot!

    Here's a link to the last pages of my "Route Ramblin's" thread.

    http://www.elvastower.com/forums/ind.../page__st__900

    Via the above link, you can look it over, and if you decide to do some reading, you can choose to start at the first page, or work backwards.

    There are a LOT of route projects covered therein, a LOT. IF enough were interested, I reckon' I could make some of my project routes available as betas. I recently gave away copies of my incomplete Rock Island 2 route. (Diesels, circa early 1970s, rails from Caldwell, KS down well south of Enid, OK to Hennessey, OK. Terrain in place to El Reno, OK. Enid's grain complexes were being completed when I moth-balled the project, also gave away the Colorado & San Juan proto-lanced in beta form, complete with "Phase 1" scenery. A pic of of a train leaving Ouray, CO headed south:





    SO... I still piddle with V scale some... but it's been a spell. However the fever could come back?
