    Default Sandpatch Motivation

    Hi Folks,

    Just a great motivational video for anyone working on a Sandpatch Route...


    I'm looking to see SD40's and SD50's ruling the rails though.

    Sandpatch - Keystone Sub


    (you can still click on the link to watch - just no pretty thumbnail)

    Regards,
    Scott

    Wow, amazing video and great drone footage. I've railfanned Sandpatch twice, and I know how difficult it is to time the peak fall-colors, but this guy certainly nailed it! As for an upgrade to the MSTS route, I can only wish!

    Hi Curt,

    As mentioned a few times over the years - TrainSimulations has started work and it is slated as one of their "Work In Progress" routes. Fingers crossed - that someday it comes to fruition. Connellsville to Cumberland.


    Regards,
    Scott

    TrainSimulations is supposedly working on a new Sandpatch (corrections welcome)

    The TSW2 version isn't too bad.

    I spent a day railfanning Sandpatch on an Australian Railway Enthusiasts tour in 1991. SD50s and SD40s everywhere back then, most still in Chessie System colours. I couple of us spent some time in the Sandpatch tower chatting with the operator, he gave us an indication of what the older employees thought of CSX when he said the C stood for Chessie, the S for Seaboard and the X was because they wouldn't let them use a swastika. He also had words to say about the CSX dispatchers down in sunny Florida expecting to keep the railroad running when he was in the midst of a blizzard.

    I agree...... it's quite picturesque.

    That would be a nice update to Maple Leaf Track's original....one of the first routes I bought from them (after KHP v1).
