    Default TrainSimulations Seligman route - BNSF vs ATSF versions

    Would appreciate advice as to whether it's worthwhile purchasing the ATSF version of Seligman from TS while the sale is on, when I already have the BNSF version. Is there much difference between the two versions? Thanks guys.
    Regards,

    Take a look at the equipment that comes along with it, if I remember it's different. That's why I bought both versions.

    The signals and speed limits are different. You go from 90 to 79 mph for the Southwest Chief.

    The ATSF flavor of the route was the MSTS version. Power was still flintstone wheel models but there was some nice ATSF car skins that are not available in any other pack.

    The BNSF flavor of the MSTS version is no longer available. When it was available, it provided upgraded shapes for the power, but still MSTS-grade shapes overall. The only thing different between the route component are signals (current of traffic, vs 2MT) and speed limits.

    The top 2 had the same track layout, just different signals, operating methods, and rolling stock.

    The BNSF flavor of the OR version is still available.

    The OR version has a different track layout since the OR version can do tons of AI that the MSTS version could never do, and deficiencies in the siding layouts were discovered that hindered overtakes when the boatload of AI were added. So the OR version has a different TDB than the MSTS version.
