    Cool Southern Railway (NS) AGS-north

    Colleagues,

    The AGS-south is in the library and was done very early in the game. A request was sent to me to
    see if I could do the AGS-north and I have agreed to do it as a back-burner issue so it will be at least
    a year before it is completed.

    That said, my health is excellent, I have no issues with altitude after a day or so of acclimation to the
    roughly 9500 ft. elevation of the C&TS which peaks at 10,015 feet, but at 83 nobody knows if we
    will wake up in the morning, so I have started putting together zip files of each route as I work on it
    and plan to have my son-in-law upload them to the "incomplete" area in the event that I get my last
    Form A and running orders*.

    * A Form A was a list of the 19 and/or 31 orders that a train crew received when train operation was
    by train order with or without ABS. The 19 and/or 31 orders were green(19) or yellow(31) sheets
    describing the situation. 31 orders had to be signed for, 19 orders could be hooped up on the fly.

    I'll try t o provide that. For kicks I start the route about a mile north of the TN River and also include the
    NS line toward Ooletewah for a few miles, and the L&N(CSX) toward Atlanta for a few miles. Then at
    the other end of Chattanooga I include CSX toward Nashville for a few miles. I just fake in the major
    yards. Early in the MSTS era, someone attempted to do Proviso yard in Chicago and from his description
    of issues he had, he sounded like a candidate for the paper doll factory. This Chattanooga area is
    already part of the CNOTP3 in the library & eventually will be part of Nashville-Chattanooga.
