Hello ,

Here is a small progress update on the project. Tracks have just reached CP Conemaugh, so i am slowly but surely getting "there". Im really enjoying building this route, although i wish i had more time to spend on it. Again, a small update on the progress, hope you like it. In case you missed the first announcement of the route head over to http://www.3dtrains....showtopic=17463

The video of the route is here:

That really looks the business, particularly the second shot. The cabin in the first looks too British though.

Rod,

Thank you for your reply. Wish we had more US assets available, that tower does indeed look british, in fact its probably from a british asset :-)

Thanks again.

Well it is really beautiful work anyway smile.gif - are there any appropriate assets in the Soo Line donationware pack?

I know it would mean, if you distributed it, the end user having to purchase the pack, but it is pretty large and full of definitely US assets rather than British/European? Just a thought. Maybe even Rich Garber's first two routes which I think still come with assets that can be used (again, the end user would have to own the routes) - though you would need to check on that.

Fantasticaly atmospheric work

Can't wait for this route. I grew up in Altoona and my brother just retired as an engineer from the railroad last year. I was thrilled when Microsoft announced this would be part of MSTS2 and then really lost interest in the whole train simulation after the announcement that it was cancelled. I had just built a new computer and hadn't yet installed MSTS on it when I got the news of the cancellation and I never did install MSTS on the new rig.
I just bought RW on sale from Steam this past week and now I'm looking for content. It looks like the first purchase will be SR and the scenery. After that, who knows?
