    Default Is serving industry in Open Rails possible

    I've recently transitioned from Run-8 to Open Rails, just to experience what other train-sims are like. I purchased the BNSF Seligman sub and have been happily running trains through the route. However, I noticed that there's nothing about industry in Open Rails, and I was wondering if it is possible to serve industries in Open Rails.

    Thanks, bnsf_bear148

    Go to the library here and download the fj_gv2.zip. It's a 20 mile shortline that serves 36 or so industries. There is a months worth of activities totaling 109 hours.

    You can purchase Activity Generator from here >>> http://www.skylinecomputing.com/ and using route templates found here >>> http://www.skylinecomputing.com/templates2.htm generate an almost endless supply of industry/switching work.

    Almost all of the routes are downloadable from the TS library, also the rolling stock required for the templates...or you can substitute your preferred rolling stock.

    Also,you can make up your own Custom Activities that are switching intensive. I would advise you VERY seriously to download Gokus' TSRE Editors. It WILL be a steep learning curve{I havn't quite figured it out,but I am a hopeless Luddite in some things!},but after a bit of practice you will be able to write your own Activities. Another option,if you have MSTS installed is to do the same with that Activity Editor,but if you are going to learn something new,then learn TSRE as it is much better. Have fun! Brian
