    Default MBTA Red Line

    I have been working slowly but surely on my Boston Cambridge Dorchester / Red Line MBTA route. Here are some shots:

    North Quincy station. This is where I am currently working, still under construction.

    Great work! What are you using for rolling stock?

    Well I don't have any authentic stock right now. The trains in the screen shots use a reskin of the Kuju/MSTS Series 2000 done by George Kenson to represent the 01500 - 01700 original south shore cars. For the Ashmont branch activities which I set in the early 1960's I am using NYC IND R4 cars to represent the 0600 / 0700 Cambridge Dorchester number 1 - number 4 cars which ran from the opening of the subway up until 1963. These are my personal favorites as I moved to Dorchester in 1962 and rode them every day to school. So there is no authentic stock for these lines right now and I have no experience building rolling stock, maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and learn.

    Oh I almost forgot the Mattapan Ashmont trolley for which there are several PCC models in the library appropriate for that line. I will have to post some screen shots of that branch now that I am almost done with its scenery. I also have a bit of the ex NHRR Old Colony and the Milton branch for which there is plenty of NHRR stock available.

    A while ago there was a member of this board Steve Thomas (user name mestevet) who was working on the 1963 Pullman Standard "Bluebirds" (014000 series) but I don't believe he ever finished that project and he does not seem to be active on the board lately. I have tried to PM him without success.
