Don't know how you do it, Rich, but you seem to get better at this all the time.

Hadn't planned on it, don't see where that would be of any benefit. - Rich

PS (Several hours later...) Having just skimmed the closed Challenger review thread, a most definite negatory! Last thing the author of the Challenger wrote that I saw was that the enthusastic response over there lost NA users some new NA content.

Folks, try RailworksAmerica.com

PSS Come to think of it, let's just keep on topic with the Fort Kent updates, thanks! - Rich

Mostly a symbolic picture, this is the northernmost area of Ft Kent looking south to represent the completed state of the route. Having started with Eagle Lake and worked northward the route's rough draft is finally done. Only one area back in Eagle Lake is in need of completion which is the receiving industry. - Rich

Good depth of scenery in that last Rich. That is one of the reasons why I like this sim so much. It is possible to have "real" countryside smile.gif

Thanks Rod. smile.gif

Some newer pics of the route. I'm about halfway through the addition of fine details. Signals, traffic and siding markers are in place. Just about done, scenarios will be next.
