    Perry: more on the landslide:

    https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/Imgs/Jpg/...8_caption.html
    https://www.usgs.gov/volcanoes/mount...ruption-shasta

    The main volcano page for Shasta very briefly mentions it in the summary: https://www.usgs.gov/volcanoes/mount-shasta

    And according to SciAm, the 1786 eruption has been deprecated: https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...ical-eruption/

    It's still gonna blow someday, and when it does the railroad won't escape damage.

    Thanks. That's what I get for not scrolling through the whole thing...

    Been several months, but progress has still been marching forward on the Shasta Route, albeit with a few sidesteps along the way to work on other things.

    Lately I have been focusing on adding scenery in the Mount Hebron to Worden area near the Oregon/California state line. The northernmost one-third of the Black Butte Sub is typified by fast-running and long tangents across the Upper Klamath Basin, a region of wide open farm fields and wetlands. Still need to do a bit of work on trackside grass, fences, and possibly making some of the big rolling irrigation sprinklers.

    Impressive Sean, I especially appreciate the dirt roads...very nicely crafted realism. This will be a wonderful route for SP fans ( count me in )
    Cheers, Gerry

    Hot dang, there's sure a lot to look at! Having the mountain visible on the horizon from miles away will be a real treat to the eyes
    But does it have field shunts?
