    Nice world you have there. Almost doesn't need trains.

    This will be a "Must Have" route. I notice that his YouTube links refer to segments of the MRS Logistica. That is one of
    my back-burner routes but it has a special interest to me in that when my employer (Xorail, Div. of WABTEC) had a
    contract to redo the signals on most of the route, I did the drafting of the "typicals" as an experienced designer and
    friend created them in free hand. We basically did this work from scratch as the original signals were done by a
    British firm in the 1980s and did not use CAD for the drafting. We did the "steel" line which was constructed new in
    the 1980s, and also the portion that reaches the ocean at a ore loadout south of Rio.
    I second the comment about great, highly detailed scenery but is this actually done with MSTS or TSRE. It looks
    more like TRAINZ.

    I am developing this Estrada de Ferro Central do Brasil Route together with my friend Diter Otaviano, work done at TSRE5 with great care in the details based on documents and videos about the stretch, as you can see on my Youtube Channel, we are Open supporters Rails so we try to do as much detail as possible.

    Good, and I encourage you to continue your project. I had great "fun" doing those typicals. Had a special keyboard on my PC so that I could enter the nomenclature in both English and Portuguese. Since names of things were different between US and Brazil, we had an employee of MRS with us too, so he could advise us as to how to name this or that item. I didn't go to Brazil but several of my colleagues did. That was back around 2012 or so.

    Stunning!
    Cheers, Gerry
    It's my railroad and I'll do what I want! Historically accurate attitude of US Railroad Barons.
    Forever, ridin' drag in railroad knowledge.
