    Might as well put this into the public record:

    I am in regular contact with gus over another channel and I have offered to help signal this route after the track work is complete. In combination with the appropriate TCS script, I believe we could build the most accurate simulation of the Northeast Corridor's complex cab signaling system.

    Small update:

    Road to NYP begins. If any one knows the % grade that the portal tunnels are angled at, please tell me. For now, I'll be using a 1.2% grade with it flattening out under the river until the slow 0.5% ascend to the station. I drew out the track work in a note book so that I do not rely on the sim for track laying. I'll release an unfinished version of the route once nyp is finished. As a reminder, no yards or major interlockings were built. Yards will be worked on once I finish Boston South then major connecting railroads will have a partial build.

    Got some NYP platforms for you and if you'd like, I've been working on some North/ East river tunnel sections I could send you.

    Send me the tunnel sections, I'd like to add them in. I've also been using your nyp sections for quite a while now. They work well with Secaucus and Philadelphia.

    Small Update:

    Beginning of the middle. Four NYP tracks (2 platforms per day) to keep my sanity. Spacing of tracks is weird but, the 7_5 track pieces are the best imo. No dynamic track here folks. Tunnel tracks will be re-done at a later time with the portal tunnels put in place.

    Take a look:

    Gus, are you making activities when you're done with the route (up to Boston/Springfield)? If so, I was thinking of supporting by making some fleet repaints, and add it to the F/L for you to setup the activities with. I don't think it will be much, but think of it as a thanks for putting yourself near the brink of madness making the route.
