    That link takes me to a DTG-forum page, with another link to the article.
    But when I click that link I just get a pop-up that I need to join the forum.

    Here's a link to another site with news about the route. You don't need to be a member of anything to read this one.

    Thanks for posting a better link, Bruce.

    Well I for one anyway am looking forward to this and will be a Day 1 purchase. In any event, we do get 1hr 59mins to determine whether or not it sucks...

    Ditto for me, Vern.

    I had the freeware Clinchfield route(s) in MSTS way, way back.....and prior to that my first connection with the "Clinch" was through a model railroad layout series published in Model Railroader. I did create the layout but never fully scenicked it.

    The series was eventually published as a book...here is a copy. Note the price!

    The layout was still in existence, in 2008, many years after its original birth.

    Ouch! Makes the likely £24.99 for the TSW route a bargain.

    That Amazon price is $490 more than it originally sold for back in 1978/79.
    Not a bad collectible.....and to think I threw mine out years ago when moving from the Blue Mts down to Canberra!!
