    Default New Siskiyou Route Update

    Hello, I just loaded the new "update" for this nice route. The trackage is very well done and included Rolling Stock and Locomotives is a great idea!
    I was hoping to see some scenery installed in this new version, but I also see that there is a Siskiyou Folder to download a spreadsheet of Route Objects, does this tell us where to install the included Shape Files for the Warehouses, Trees etc?
    The only scenery I have seen are the Propane Tanks at the Switch Heaters, and of course the Car-Spawners with the Highways and Roads.
    Thank you for this fine route!

    Are you saying there is basically no scenery in the route other than propane tanks for switch heaters?\

    the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    ????????????????? There are numerous buildings and flora among the 3200+ shape files in the shapes folder.

    Where is this Spreadsheet to download referenced?

    As to questions about the route, did you not see this on tha same page that has the pointer to the download?
    If you run into any kind of difficulty. or if you have questions about the Route I'm here to help... just drop me a note.

    Yes, I did see that, but I thought I would check here first to see if I was just missing something. There are various links on the web-site, none seemed to answer my issue, but scenery was shown on a couple of pics displayed.

    Isn't the route a work in progress? There probably isn't scenery in that part of the route yet

    Vegetation (forest) has been placed through Cow Creek Canyon. In my opinion the result is quite convincing and the area is very nice for taking screenshots. I have attached a ZIP with explore paths that begin at either end of the canyon (Glendale and Cornutt) or at Dutchman within the canyon. The paths are for the latest release of the route.

    Yes, I realize that is a "Work in Progress", I was just asking about this in case I missed something. I ran the Sisk_Ashi_TP_01 act so far.
    Looking via Google, this route has tons of vegetation, I can see that it would be quite a chore to get it all in.
    Thank you all for the input.
