My pleasure!

Here are a few more which I really liked. The first two show how the route is so interesting you don't even need a train present to capture your imagination!

This one shows off the chilly winter atmosphere you might see on "the Kent":

Thanks Kevin. smile.gif The route vegetation is a combination of mostly Marc's Rural Landscape, default and my own. We all must have used the same techniques to bring about the autumn textures which I'm thinking is why autumn turned out so nice. With Railworks you can have seasonal ground textures too and that's a big help in bringing the color scheme a consistency with the season. Winter is kind of neat and I love Molly's one pic where you can almost hear the wind blowing because the mixture of techniques has a nice blend. There's an unpredictablity to the branches with some covered with ice, snow and just barren. Usually with a route most folks like the summer season the best and with the Fort Kent it looks pretty good too. But my favorite is the autumn and winter months. - Rich
