    Well, took a break from working on the VTR CLP Whitehall Subdivision, and laid track between Sebago Lake Siding, and Steep Falls, Maine.

    Passing the Northwest portion of Sebago Lake.



    Arrived into Steep Falls, Maine, about to drop off two loaded covered hoppers for the local grain/feed mill.




    Tied back onto the local for Gilman after dropping off the hoppers.

    I have pushed the tracks a little past Cornish, Maine, with a resolved issue I was having with a missing tile in TSRE. Going back to an older TSRE version seemed to have done the trick with old settings in place.

    YR-1 Extra, loaded oil train with LC&S power on point. This is actually a run through train from Ogdensburg, NY to Portland, ME, so it holds its power over the WMRC Mountain Subdivision, WMRC Lamoille Subdivision, and LC&S's Champlain Subdivision.




    Just west of Cornish, this is the tile that wasn't properly showing in the newer TSRE settings for some odd reason. Which was getting frustrating, because this is where the Mountains start to become pretty noticeable, especially with the track grades ranging from 0.09% to almost 2%. YR-1 with a range of power.



    Another YR-1 train, with some hard working units, showing the raises and dips in the track between Cornish and Steep Falls. Head two cars will be a drop off in Steep Falls at the small feed company, the the handful just behind it are pick ups made in Whitefield, from the local that goes to Gilman Paper.

    Thank Kevin. I have a long ways to go. Still another 100 miles of track to lay heading west. Keep in mind the biggest reason I'm using xtracks and the default track set of MSTS, is due to the fact the route is based on the 1981 time frame. So the line wasn't in it's best shape, and will be released under the MEC title.
    Eventually I want to have it as my base route for the WMRC as you can tell in the many photos here. Maybe eventually I'll upgrade to scalerail, but time will tell.

    Reworking the Rigby Yard. the tight curves of the switches are making this a bit difficult. The older portion of the yard probably hasn't seen moderate changes for the style switches in years. Newer portion appears to have longer sweeping curves to accept the intermodal traffic that Pan Am occasionally sees with the Poland Spring contract. Decided to give the 6d switches a try seems 7_5d didn't give enough room for the compact feel. So far so good, but will hit a snag, as the portion towards the left of the screen, has a bit of a "kink" in the track work near the departure/inbound tracks. So adjusting will have to be needed even though it doesn't show well on the images.

    "Good enough" is going to be the thing for this yard. Hopefully St. Johnsbury Yard doesn't hold this much issue..

    Been laying down some scenery in various spots between Portland and Brownfield. Here is a small section I've done, that's roughly 90% complete for scenery. Just a few minor details needing to be added.

    The video shows it, plus a train heading through on its way to St. Johnsbury.
