As I look back across about 2 years, there was a time when I had to make do with Marias Pass and the Northeast Corridor. Since then, a plethora of routes have hit the "market" and a number are in some phase of development. With this in mind, and the screen shots that have perked my appetite, my patience is limitless for this particular route--owing to the fact that I live within sight of it.
Keep plugging away at it. As a database administrator and programmer, I know full well your dilemma, as well as the incredible amount of testing and modification an application can take. This is truly a labor of love and commitment. When it is done, it will be done, and we will all be richer because of it.
Between the proposed Cal-P route and the numerous other Train-Sim-related products, SLW is a priceless resource. Whenever and whatever, my checkbook is poised and ready!

I just got in an hour ago and finished reading through a slew of 700 some odd emails, 3/4 of them junk (even with the spam filters).
This is what I can tell you at this moment:
1) The route is still coming out
2) I appologize for not getting the website updated as much as you (or I) would like.
3) We are not going any where, just slowly getting to the finish line.
OK, now for a little personal update.
Monday I start RCL training for a week.
Next week I will spend 6 days at the hump.
The following week I will be spending 6 nights switching refineries near Ozol. (Need to get a laptop)
The week after that I will be spending 6 beautiful nights in the Oakland yard. (Need to get a laptop)
Then the week after Oakland I will be back in Roseville for 2 weeks.
After all this I am told I will have two weeks conductor school and then two more weeks of on the job training somewhere.
So that is the scoop.

Keep up the good work guys, despite your new jobs and all, I think you guys will get the job done and done well. I have faith in you all. You are all a great bunch of guys at SLW. And I mean that sincerely!

Well Cal-P is still coming. We found some one who is great at what he does and has taken all the research we had found in the last few years (unbelievable it has been several years since the start of the Cal-P project), combined it with his own and is really coming out with some good ideas.
-We are at a point where we need to nail down what type of track we will be using. I have been trying to get a contract for Marc's Scale Rail, but it appears that is not going to happen as it has taken too much time and effort. So we are looking to roll our own or use someone else's.
-The signals have been modeled for a year now.
-Ron Picardi has supplied us with some really nice bridges
-Many of you have given us pieces of information and done a little research as well.
I thankyou all for your support.
Once we get some more vegetation layed in, we might see some more screens.
Note: the rail and locomotives are products of 3DTrains and may not be associated with this product upon final release.

Well, I sure hope that ScaleRail makes it, if nothing else.

Anyway, I hope scale rail is a part of the route as well. Certainly any issues you all have can be rectified. I mean you are all a part of this forum here so there must be some communication here. Let's resolve the issue and make scale rail a part of the cal-p route. You guys need a go between. Be glad to help! Seriously.

Might help, Erik, if you were to email me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org. As far as I'm aware, I haven't recieved any email from you in some time. I just figured you were busy with the UP.
