Just finished placing my order via paypal and downloading the equipment packages from train-sim. Can't wait to start running on the North Arkansas! Thanks for all the work you put in to this route, and especially for keeping us all informed during construction.

just to be sure: Does the price of $ 18.95 include shipping to Europe?
If not, what would be the price to have the CD delivered to this side of the ocean?

I have the first small batch ready to mail today. (Yours included CyberJim!) Bear in mind that tomorrow the USPS will be closed in reverence to the death of former President Ronald Reagan.
Let's give it a try at the posted price of $18.95. If I get quite a few overseas sales and the shipping is far more than expected, I'll need to make adjustments for future overseas purchases.

The engines, rolling stock, and sound pack are INCLUDED on the CD! (Mentioned at the website.)
No need for purchasers to download the freeware option at Train-sim.com!
The upload to Train-sim.com was simply a gift to the V scale/sim community.
You'll get your equipment via the CD... so don't sweat the download part!

Andre, I feel as excited about this as you do, believe me. I know you have been waiting for this moment for some time, as I am sure everyone else, including myself has. We have all been beside you as you posted your first pictures all the way to the last. So, we are excited too. And no one could be happier for you than I am. Your a great guy my friend and I wish you the greatest success with it. I know it will do well, because of your being its author and because of its uniqueness, the steam, the era, the place, the activities. This all adds up to lots of fun and enjoyment, as well as a learning experience to boot. Now, you just can't beat that combination. And isn't that why we are all here anyway. I hope your route spawns more like it. Steam, the turn of the century of maybe even the roaring twenties with the cars, the night spots, (hmmm, that sounds better the more I talk about it. Hey, anyone out there want to do a roaring twenties route? I would love that), anyway, as I was saying. I bet it spawns a lot of similar type routes. I hope that is one of the results of this endeavor. But the best result would be for you to be successful with this and have it encourage you to do another, and another, because I think you have a flair for it, much in the same vein as Rich G. does. And that ain't a bad thing.
Anyway, congrats again Andre, and thank you for everything. You are a good man with a good heart and soul. I wish you all the success in the world.

I received a personal email thanking me for producing the route, and the person very insightfully indicated that likely the total sales won't really be adequate compensation for the effort. I've long ago accepted that possibility.
However overall (frustration times notwithstanding!), I did enjoy bringing this to you, and hope that it will be a lot of fun for all that have purchased it. The gist of the way this emailer expressed it was: "My $18.95 isn't enough to adequately pay for your time, but it's a way I can say thank you and give you an atta boy at the same time."
It's 11:10 our time. Just got home from some obligations. I will be burning CD's and packaging tonight until I'm finished. However, the mail will not go out until Saturday. I hope to have all orders up to the last minute on their way before the USPS closes on Saturday.
Very doubtful you'll receive your CD until sometime mid next week.
